An AED is a portable device that can send an electric shock to restore normal heart rhythm during sudden cardiac arrest. The machine will be located on the second floor near the library.

Dear HHS Students & Families, A quick reminder that Thursday, October 8th is the end of the 1st Quarter.  Please see the attached schedules for details.  Quarter 2 begins on Tuesday, October 13th.   Additionally, please encourage your student, whether in-person or remote, to continue to complete all work and assignments before the quarter ends next week. Quarter 1 is 40% of the semester grade.  If your student has missing assignments or 0s listed in PowerSchool, please check with your student on what they need to do to get assignments turned in for credit.  Unfortunately, certain missing homework and assignments may be overdue to the point that no credit will be awarded this late in the quarter.  You can check your student's grades in PowerSchool for more details  https://ps.highlandcusd5.org/public/.  Finally, students have an 8th Hour Homeroom where they are able to complete homework, study, and get extra help from teachers if needed.  Please encourage them to use this time to get work done.  Thanks for your continued support!

Good Afternoon Highland CUSD 5 Families, It has been a school year like no other. We have been in session 5 full weeks and are nearing the end of Quarter 1 which concludes Thursday, October 8. The end of the quarter opens the option for families to change their student's learning environment from Remote to In-Person or from In-Person to Remote for Quarter 2. We ask that only parents wishing to change do so in the form linked below. Please understand this selection will be in effect from Tuesday, October 13 through Tuesday, December 22. We understood the many uncertainties and difficult decisions families were managing at the beginning of the year, and we were as responsive as possible to requests for changes during Quarter 1. However, those changes created many difficulties. During Quarter 2, building administrators will only consider learning environment change requests under extenuating circumstances. This form must be completed by a parent or guardian by September 25, 2020, at 4:00 PM for each student requesting a change. For families wishing to CHANGE their current learning environment, please click the following link: https://forms.gle/Gkvft9qKGz5ck9eT6

The first month of school has been quite the adventure. So many highs, some lows, and everything in between. It’s been really hard sometimes-no playbook and no roadmap. But through it all, we’re so proud of what we’ve accomplished and we will continue to do the best we can for our students. We will fight through adversity and rise above to prepare them for their future. Whether you’re a student learning in-person, on full remote learning, or you’re currently on quarantine, we’re proud of you. We’re very thankful for an amazing faculty and staff who continue to focus on teaching and learning to do what’s best for students. They’re putting their heart and soul into teaching and it’s not easy during a pandemic. So much about teaching has changed since COVID-19 arrived and sometimes we’re learning as we go. It’s hard. Our faculty and staff continue to plan and prepare to engage our students, clean our school and campus, and create a positive school culture for everyone. They care about what they do and continue to find ways to make things work. Our parents and community have been behind us as well, we feel it, and we appreciate it. We can’t do it without your support. It’s truly been a team effort to accomplish what we have since school began on August 17. We know it’s not been perfect and there’s more work to do, but our community should be proud of what we’ve done. Thank you to our students, our faculty and staff, and our community. Whatever happens moving forward, we will continue to do the best we can with the resources we have for everyone. Thanks for your continued patience, support, and understanding. We’ve got this. #BulldogStrong

We will explore possibilities for something later in the summer, but unfortunately, it could be cancelled if we are not able to assemble in large groups. We will monitor things the next few months and see what happens.

Dear Parents, Staff and Community Members: I hope this message finds you and your families safe and well. Today, Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker announced that remote learning in Illinois will be extended through the end of the 2019-20 school year. Although in-person learning has been suspended for the remainder of the year, at Highland CUSD No. 5, I assure you our entire staff remains committed to learning and engaging with all students through remote learning, as well as continuing with our food distribution program. Like you, we are saddened by the reality that our school community will not be able to reconvene in person this school year due to this public health crisis. So many of you have worked so hard to learn and grow in both the classroom and in extracurricular activities that today’s announcement may feel like a step back. However, the final chapter of this school year hasn’t been written yet. These past few weeks have proven our school community is more resilient, more capable and more compassionate than maybe what we previously realized. I’m confident our collective strength will shine through during the remainder of the school year, and we will emerge even stronger. Having said that, today’s announcement will result in significant and multiple scheduling changes in our district. As this announcement about the end of the school year was just made by Governor Pritzker this afternoon, it will take us a few days to sort out the many schedule details that are on the books, including spring concerts, promotion, graduation, etc. Please be patient as we work as a district to get information to you in the next several weeks. I know this is not the school year that any of us imagined, but I want to thank you for your patience and understanding as we have dealt with this unprecedented situation together. This period of Remote Learning offers us new ways to learn and grow, and out of this Pandemic, we will emerge stronger. Plans will be underway soon for the return to in-person learning next school year. It’s important we continue to work together and support our students. I can't thank you enough for all that you are doing as we all work together through this. Sincerely, Michael S. Sutton
