School Bus - Yes or No?

Transportation Survey (Click) - Please take a short (two question) survey today.

Bend La Pine School Transportation needs to know what each student is planning to do should we begin the Hybrid Model. As you can imagine, scheduling transportation routes is especially important and challenging this year. Please help transportation by completing a short survey as soon as possible.

Highland Apparel - Last Chance!

The Highland Apparel Store is now open! Please CLICK to order Highland Gear.

As the school year is already unusual in pretty much every way, we're switching things up and having the shirt design contest go with the Spring Sale. We'd like all 4th and 5th graders, who'd like to participate, submit their designs to [email protected] no later than February 1st- this will allow students the opportunity to utilize the winter break for designing if they so choose. We can't wait to see what designs you come up with and thank you for helping us show Highland Piper school spirit!
