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!
