Athletic Gold Pass
Gold passes are available at the District Office, to obtain a gold pass you must be over 60 years of age and live in the Forest Hills School District. Gold passes are being honored but if advised by the Department of Health to limit attendance at athletic events we will have to revert to not being able to accept gold pass holders.
