Highlands Promotion for 5th Grade - June 15, 2021 at 11:00

Our 5th Grade Promotion Ceremony at Highlands is scheduled for Tuesday, June 15 at 11:00 am. We invite all three of our 5th grade classrooms to this special event.  Ms. Parrish, Ms. Learned, and Ms. Parker will all be present to bid a farewell to their students.  Congratulations 5th graders! 

Technology Return

If you have registered a district hotspot this year, we ask that you return it to the school by June 15th. All students must return the hotspot so the district can take inventory and plan for the new school year. If you are leaving the district, please return your Chromebook as well. Returning students can keep their school-provided Chromebook for the summer.

Fall Plans

We are planning for a full return to school this fall (a full instructional day with all students on campus) while continuing to follow any San Mateo County Health and California Department of Education guidance. We are working with District staff to discuss and finalize how to best manage the requirements as we learn them. The legislature will not allow school districts to provide Distance Learning programming for the 2021-2022 school year. Families who requested a Distance Learning option for the fall due to medical concerns will need to ulize Independent Study policies and protocols if students cannot return to school. A letter will come from the District Office with information to those who requested Distance Learning soon.
