HHS Distance Learning Plan

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I hope that you and your families are doing well. I know that we all continue to adjust while attempting to find a new (temporary) normal under these circumstances. 

With Monday’s (3/30/2020) announcement from Governor DeWine that Ohio is extending school closures through May 1, the district has worked to develop additional guidance on distance learning for our students and parents.         

Below, you will find the High School and Middle School Distance Learning Plan. The goal of the document is to provide a general overview of online teaching and learning beginning April 6 through May 1. 

We have worked to provide additional structure, appropriate content and common expectations for learning, while still allowing for the flexibility that families need at this time. Our entire staff continues to work from home and are available to assist you and your child with any questions that you may have.    

I am so appreciative of all the work that has occurred during this very challenging time. Thank you.    

Catherine Aukerman, Superintendent

Distribution of School Lunches During Closure

The Highland School District will begin distribution of student lunches during the extended school closure period in Ohio (April 6 through May 1). With the Governor’s current mandatory "Stay at Home'' order, and in an effort to keep our staff members safe, we will be offering school lunch meal “pick-up” on a weekly distribution.

Households who are currently on the lunch program can receive a weekly allotment of their child's school lunches, once a week. Beginning Monday, April 6, lunches will be distributed to families for the entire week. Each lunch bag will contain 5 complete lunches. (Please note, we will not be serving lunches on weekends or scheduled holidays).

All orders must be placed by 12 p.m. on Friday preceding the upcoming week's offering OR parents may sign up for all four weeks when completing the form.  Parents must complete the following “Lunch Distribution Form” in order to receive the lunches. Please note: Lunches will not be available without pre-ordering. LUNCH DISTRIBUTION FORM   

All lunches can be picked up at the main entrance of Highland High School, 4150 Ridge Road, Medina, every Monday from 10-11 a.m.

To adhere to social distancing guidelines, we ask that parents remain in their vehicle. Volunteers will place the items in the trunk or hatchback of each vehicle.

If you have any questions or are unable to complete the form online, please leave a message with the Food Service Department at 330-239-1901, ext. 5512.

Governor Extends School Closure Order Through May 1

During his press conference on March 30, Governor DeWine announced that the current order closing Ohio school buildings will be extended through May 1, consistent with CDC guidance. 

The school district is currently working on additional information that will be communicated to all families. We appreciate your patience as we continue to work through these announcements in real time. 

As students and staff return from Spring Break today, we continue with distance learning opportunities. We remind all families that each student has access to online instruction, that includes Google Classrooms and curriculum materials, through the Clever login at http://support.highlandschools.org.


Changes to AP Testing Announced

On March 20, The College Board announced changes to the Advanced Placement tests for 2020 in response to the Coronavirus. Traditional face-to-face exam administrations will not take place. Students will be able to test from home and be able to choose from two separate dates. Content for most testing has been adjusted to reflect what students would have covered through early March. Information about the reduced scope of content that will be covered on each 2020 AP Exam is currently posted on AP Central®.

Additional preparation resources will be available beginning on March 25. Requirements for portfolio submissions have also changed. Full information, including specific test dates and the free-response question types for every AP exam will be posted by April 3.
