Dear Highland Parents, On May 24, another horrific massacre of innocent children and teachers occurred, this time at Robb Elementary School in Texas. There really are no words to express the sorrow for all the victims and families impacted by this tragedy. Their lives are forever changed. As in the past, and after yet another mass casualty event in a school, there are calls at the national level for more stringent security measures. We have received questions, so I want to assure you that all of our schools have detailed, multi-hazard safety and security plans in place that have been approved by the State of Ohio, Homeland Security and local law enforcement agencies. We routinely conduct developmentally appropriate safety drills (including lockdowns with law enforcement), conduct risk assessments (of our facilities and students) and continuously review our safety procedures. We have strong partnerships with all responding agencies and work in tandem to maintain a safe and secure environment.

Dear Highland Parents & Guardians, As this school year quickly comes to an end, the Transportation Department staff will soon begin planning new bus routes for the 2022-23 school year. Due to the continued bus driver shortage, we may need to condense and/or eliminate up to 20% of our current routes for next year. There simply are not enough drivers in our area to fill the vacancies. LAST YEAR, OVER 50% OF HIGHLAND STUDENTS ROUTED DID NOT ACTUALLY RIDE THE BUS. This high percentage of non-riders directly impacts our ability to design the most efficient routes. Please help us do better. We are asking parents to complete a TRANSPORTATION REQUEST FORM for the 2022-23 school year. Only complete this form if your student(s) will require busing for the coming year. Please do not complete this form “just in case” your child might need transportation. If you do not require transportation at this time, but may in the future, it will be available. Again, we are trying to obtain the most accurate numbers.
