Principal’s Letter

Dear Highland Families,

Thank you everyone for your caution and patience in the morning for these past few days with such a cold snap. The morning drop off is a bit more difficult with the cold and icy roads, so I appreciate everyone slowing down and taking their time. These cold temperatures unfortunately confined our students inside for recess for most of the week. Indoor recess is never our first choice, but sometimes it's necessary. I want to thank all our students and staff for adapting. It's really nice when everyone pulls together to make the best of the situation.
