Principal’s Letter

Dear Highland Families,

The move from “required” to “recommended” for masking went well this week. It will take time for everyone to reach a similar comfort level, so we continue to foster an environment that honors everyone’s decision. Thank you all for your continued support.

Our volunteer system is just about up and running. Thank you so much for the strong response. By the end of this week we will communicate our cleared list to the teachers. Although you may have received a confirmation for your submission, you may not be cleared as it does take longer for some applications than others.

Lost and found will be out for display one last time tomorrow and we will be donating remaining items over spring break. We are sharing our newsletter a day early in hopes of prompting many of you to make one last check on the items on the fence by the parking lot.

The lottery application process closes tomorrow, if you have a younger sibling starting kindergarten next year please be sure they are entered. Although siblings have priority in the lottery, they cannot be considered unless the application is submitted.

I wish you all a wonderful spring break. Whether you are traveling or staying around town, please enjoy and be safe.

School Wide Character Trait: Empathy!

Empathy! What an incredible opportunity we have to simply just listen and be with people. To TRY and understand what they are feeling, often without trying to solve the problem. Empathy might be one of the more difficult character traits to teach our kids but it’s sure important. Modeling empathy is one way I have found to be effective.

This could be a great opportunity to show and practice empathy and understanding around the different choices available with masking. Being sure to make Highland an inclusive and safe place for everyone.

Be Well,

Heidi Thomas
