Due to expected wintery mix in the noon hour, Highland CUSD No. 5 will be closed today, January 17th. This is a difficult decision, but early dismissal creates many issues for many parents. Thank you and have a great day!
Good afternoon, I encourage everyone to monitor the weather conditions tomorrow and have a plan should school be dismissed early. We will try to avoid early dismissal, but conditions may necessitate it. As always, safety will be our number one priority!
Update: The school parking lots and walkways are mostly clear right now, but refreezing tonight may present some slick areas tomorrow morning. Please be safe when walking and driving through our parking lots. Country roads are not great, but school will be in session tomorrow.
Our custodians and maintenance folks are working to clear parking lots and walkways today. There is a lot of snow so I am sure some areas will be a little tricky. We fully expect school to be in session tomorrow. Please dig your cars out and be prepared. Be safe!
I am getting questions about programs, activities, etc. Building administrators will be sending information regarding cancellations and reschedule dates. Thanks.
The previous message should have been December 17th. Sorry!
Good evening, Highland Community Unit School District Number 5 will not be in session tomorrow, Tuesday, December 16. We are hopeful that school will be in session Wednesday through Friday. Have a great evening!

Good morning Highland CUSD No. 5. This is a reminder that the registration window is open until July 20. Please be sure to complete registration for the 2019/2020 school year.
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.
