Per ISBE: “We know that the free SAT provided by the state is the only opportunity many students get to take a college entrance exam. ISBE is working with the College Board on developing options to allow current 11th grade students to take the SAT in the fall. We hope to have more information on these options by the end of April.”

Good Afternoon HHS Families, Faculty and Staff, I hope you’re doing the best you can with family and friends this weekend. Recent events have been hard on all of us and it’s difficult, if not impossible, to understand and accept the current reality. And that’s perfectly okay right now. The video link below, shared by a parent, depicts how many of us currently feel, especially our students. I encourage you to take a moment to view as a family or by yourself if you are able. https://youtu.be/2OjjWh-8Iv0 We know there is no right or wrong way to feel at this time as we are all handling this in different ways, the best we can. Finally, be patient with each, be strong and courageous, and stay rooted in love. Sincerely, Dr. Chris A. Becker

Good afternoon Highland CUSD No. 5 stakeholders, The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has become the issue discussed in every location across the country at this time. Highland CUSD No. 5 nurses have been diligently working with the Madison County Health Department on preventative measures to reduce the likelihood of exposure and transmission within our schools. Recommendations to use good hygiene such as washing hands, not touching your face, and not reporting to school or work if you experience flu-like (cough, fever, respiratory issues or any other signs of illness) symptoms continue to be the focus for each of us. However, it has become evident that additional measures may become necessary to combat the spread. The purpose of this correspondence is to clarify the district’s position. Many are calling for school closures and suspension of all activities. We do not currently have a confirmed case of COVID-19 in our district or county. Currently, school is one of the safest atmospheres for our nearly 3000 students. This is a very fluid situation and may change even by the time this correspondence goes out. We will prepare for the worst case scenario, but hope for the best. This is why our district staff are working towards an e-learning plan to engage students in the learning process should a prolonged district closure occur. We are continuously in contact with the Madison County Health department, which is in contact with local, state and federal officials. As circumstances change, so do our plans. If there is a confirmed case of COVID-19 locally, school closure will likely be one of the first considerations. We plan to have more information about opportunities and/or expectations of continued learning should a prolonged district closure occur. We are currently inundated with calls, email and concerns about our next steps. My commitment at this time is to the safety and wellbeing of all HCUSD No. 5 students and staff. Regarding field trips, extracurricular and curricular activities, we will make decisions based on the risk of exposure for our students and staff. If it becomes evident that participation increases the risk of exposure, we will suspend or cancel as needed. We certainly respect parents’ decisions should they desire to opt out of any activities at this time. Madison County Superintendents issued a joint press release yesterday as a result of a meeting with the Madison County Health Department. That release, as well as additional releases, will be available on the district website at www.highlandcusd5.org. Additional resources are available for families through the Madison County Health Department website at www.madisonchd.org As this situation continues to be fluid, we will be exploring options to meet students’ individual needs to ensure a continuity of education. Please click for the e-learning survey: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSclYzEzaYyVY3VF9Tf0TrMo8R3NSHySdvmANL5mU-taissycw/viewform Respectfully, Michael S. Sutton Superintendent

HHS Students and Staff, As some of you may have heard, four students from Collinsville and Triad were involved in a tragic accident yesterday. We ask that HHS students and staff wear BLUE on Wednesday, Dec. 18 to show our support. Please see the correspondence below from Triad Middle School Principal, Matt Noyes. Our thought and prayers go out to the families. From the TMS Principal: TMS Parents/Guardians, I hope that you and your families were all able to stay warm and safe during the recent winter storm our region experienced. As you may have heard, four teenage girls (2 from Triad and 2 from Collinsville) were involved in a tragic, fatal atv accident yesterday. The two Triad Middle School students are doing fine physically, but are understandably struggling with the loss of one of their close friends, while worrying about the injuries sustained to another. I would like to encourage all Triad Middle School students and staff members to join Collinsville Middle School in wearing blue tomorrow (Wednesday, December 18th) when we return to school as a sign of support for the students involved in this unfortunate accident. Please keep these families in your thoughts and prayers during such a difficult time. We will have additional counselors available tomorrow for any students who need their support. Thank you, Matt Noyes
