From October 25-29, the Highland Schools will recognize National Red Ribbon Week in an effort to contribute to the creation of a drug free America. Students at the elementary buildings will incorporate the ideas of treating others with kindness and learning the importance of making healthy choices. Their theme for the week will be "Our School Rocks -- We Are Bully Free and Drug Free." The middle school DARE Role Models have created Spirit Days to support the drug free lifestyle, along with the idea of being responsible and focusing on the future. The high school's SADD organization also created Spirit Days to encourage students to take the stance to "Be About Your Choices." The first National Red Ribbon Celebration occurred in 1988. Today, the red ribbon serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities.

Dear Highland Parents, Across the country, school districts are struggling to fill transportation jobs. In a recent national survey, 81% of districts reported not being able to find enough school bus drivers to fill their needs. More than half of surveyed districts categorize this shortage as “severe” or “desperate.” Unfortunately, the Highland School District has joined this growing number of school districts and has the same busing challenges. (See Akron Beacon Journal articles published on 10-1-21 and 9-29-21). The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted school transportation and has left our district extremely short-handed. We are struggling to hire bus drivers.
