Granger Challenge Fundraiser

The Granger PTO will hold its 10th annual Granger Challenge this May. Unfortunately, we cannot have our normal walk-a-thon due to continuing restrictions, but we need your support to Get Back on Track for the 2021-2022 school year. The Granger Challenge is the PTO’s largest fundraiser of the year. Donations raised during the Granger Challenge are used to enrich our children’s school experience and have previously funded all those events that we missed so much this year – Breakfast with Santa, Granger Talent Show, Science Olympiad, 5th grade picnic, and Mother-Son and Father-Daughter events. Donations also assist with classroom technology and speaker events like COSI. We are hoping for a fun 2021-2022 school year, and we need you ALL ABOARD to get us back on track! 

As part of our event, we will have three fun, theme days that align with our turn-in dates:

Turn in Day #1: 5/7 - The Green Hornet (wear your Highland Spirit Wear)
Turn in Day #2: 5/14 – The Polar Express (wear your school appropriate Pajamas)
Turn in Day #3: 5/21 – The High-Speed Rail (wear your hair crazy!)

Donations can be sent in with your student(s) or made directly via the PTO’s PayPAL.

Highland Safety Week Information

Highland's Safety Week will not be offered this summer for incoming kindergarten students. Instead, the district will incorporate safety lessons into the kindergarten curriculum when students return in September for the 2021-22 school year. The lessons will introduce and reinforce safety concepts to students who are broadening their world as they begin elementary school. DARE Officer Sharon Centner, along with the elementary teachers, will instruct students on stranger danger, bike safety, playground safety, school bus safety and more.

Our current kindergarten students will receive these same safety lessons prior to the end of this school year, since they did not have the opportunity to attend Safety Week in 2020 due to Covid restrictions. 

The district hopes to bring back the traditional Safety Week in the summer of 2022!

Kindergarten Registration Now Open!

Registration is now open for the Highland Local Schools Kindergarten Program! We are looking forward to your child beginning their school career with us and becoming an official Highland Hornet!  Highland’s Kindergarten Program consists of an all-day, every-day model. In order to register, a child must be 5 years old by September 30, 2021.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this year’s registration process will be completed entirely online, through the electronic submission of all required forms.

VLA Lunch Request Distribution Form

The Highland School District will offer lunches at NO COST to ANY Highland students enrolled in the Virtual Learning Academy. This service is offered in conjunction with the USDA free lunch program through the end of the 2020-21 academic year. You do not have to be eligible for free and reduced lunch status to qualify. 

The district will offer school lunch meal “pick-up” on a weekly distribution. Families with students enrolled in the Highland VLA can receive a WEEKLY allotment of their child's school lunches. 

Beginning Monday, September 28 through June 14, 2021 (end of the USDA free lunch program), lunches will be distributed to families for the entire week. Each lunch bag will contain 5 complete lunches. Baking instructions can be downloaded HERE or on the district website under departments/foodservice. (Please note, we will not be serving lunches on weekends, scheduled holidays or holiday breaks).
