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.

As a reminder, our website always reflects the most current information available to our families regarding our reopening plans, teaching and learning guidelines, and health and safety protocols. Please visit to stay updated.

We ask that each of you continue to wear a facial covering when in public, avoid large social gatherings, wash your hands frequently and stay home if you are not feeling well to help curb the spread of COVID-19 in the community.

Thank you,
Catherine Aukerman
