Students have been dismissed and buses will run several minutes late. Thank you for your patience! Safety is not always convenient, but I am hopeful all kids are safe due to the diligence of our staff. Thank you.
Due to ongoing weather conditions, buses may be running late as we try to navigate the severe storms passing through. Please be patient as we try to exercise caution in getting all kids home safely. Many kids are currently being held at school until it is safe to proceed.
This is a final reminder for Kindergarten call in registration. If you have a child that will turn 5 on or before September 1, 2019, please call your school office, Highland Primary 618-654-2107 or Alhambra Primary 618-488-2200 so they can be included in the upcoming Kindergarten Visitation. Class lists will be created beginning next week. Thank you.
Due to the freezing drizzle and the timing of the current weather, Highland CUSD No. 5 will not be in session today, Thursday, February 28. This call must be made before buses get out on the roads and it is uncertain what the conditions will be in the next few hours. Thanks
Many districts experienced bus issues today resulting from the frigid temperatures yesterday and through the evening. Kudos to Highland's transportation company, First Student, for working through the night to get buses on the road this morning! Thanks to all at First Student!
Thank you to those of you right on top of my error in the date. Tomorrow is January 30th and we will still be out of school due to extreme temperatures:)
Due to the extreme temperatures expected tomorrow morning, school will not be in session on Wednesday, January 29, 2019. We fully expect classes to resume on Thursday. Thank you.
There seems to be some confusion about dismissal. Highland CUSD No. 5 is on regular schedule and will not be dismissing early. We are hopeful that all buses stay on normal schedule. If there are delays, we will be communicating appropriately.
If you recently received an email from MSB with a false student name stating "on behalf of Highland Power school Test" please disregard - MSB is testing and inadvertently sent those out - they will be issuing another statement sometime today. Please excuse the inconvenience.
Please pass the word. I hope everyone sees, hears, or watches the tv news. Sorry for the inconvenience. We hope to rectify the problem soon!
Hello again Highland CUSD No. 5, It has come to my attention that the new messaging system is not making phone calls, texts, or emails. This means the message about the school closing tomorrow is only reaching those of you with the district app, twitter and/or Facebook.
Good evening, it is very uncommon to cancel school based on a forecast, but due to the timing and accumulation predictions, I have decided to cancel school for tomorrow, Thursday, November 15th. Please be safe and enjoy the day! Thank you.
In preparation for inclement weather, this is a TEST notification! If and when school is cancelled, a message would be sent via this method. It should also be located on the district website through the live feed. Thank you!
Just posted the Football Cheerleading Coach position. If interested apply online.
