Help us imagine OPRF's future

Oak Park and River Forest High School is considering making the biggest changes to its campus in 50 years. How will this community's most important asset serve students and residents in the future? Become part of the discussion at Imagine OPRF's third Community Conversation on Monday, April 16, at 7 p.m. in the OPRF South Cafeteria.

Imagine OPRF is a community-led group working to identify the facilities needs of OPRF and to recommend a long-term facilities master plan to the District 200 Board of Education.

On April 16, we will be sharing our work and gathering additional input from community members. This meeting will be the first opportunity to look at conceptual options that would address the facilities needs identified in Imagine's research over the past seven months.

To see the current state of this vintage building up close, all residents of River Forest and Oak Park are invited to tour the OPRF building with Imagine volunteers on Saturday April 14 (tours at 10, 10:15, 10:30, 10:45) or immediately before the April 16 meeting (tours at 5:45, 6, 6:15). All events will be at OPRF High School, 201 N. Scoville Ave.

As the most important institution in our community, and one that impacts everyone who lives and works here, OPRF and its future matter to us all. Every voice and viewpoint is welcome and appreciated. Please come tell us what you think.
