Welcome Back, Students!

Dear Highland Families,

We are so happy to have our students back!. As a district, we remain committed to a safe and responsible learning environment for all of our students and staff. 

As a reminder, we begand the year using our staggered hybrid schedule, which consists of 50 percent of students in a building at one time with all safety protocols in place.

  • Students in grades K-12 attending school “in-person” are assigned to Green or White cohorts began school on Monday, September 14 (Green) or Tuesday, September 15 (White) and will rotate school attendance days through Friday, September 25. Hybrid Schedule 
  • On Monday, September 28, all “in-person” students attend.     
  • Students enrolled in Highland’s Virtual Learning Academy (VLA) began school daily on Monday, September 14.

The Highland School District will continue to remain in close contact with the Medina County Health Department to analyze and review available data related to COVID-19. We are prepared to move quickly into our contingency plans of hybrid or home distance learning, if necessary, due to increased school-based or community spread of the virus.
