Dear Highland Parents/Guardians,
Below is a link to the Reopening Plan (Draft) document for the 2020-21 school year. We thank you for your patience as we have worked to develop our initial plan for responsibly reopening our schools.
As you will find throughout the draft plan, the health and safety of our students and staff are our first priority. The recommendations are based upon the best scientific and medical information available to us at this time.
It is important to acknowledge that we are in the midst of a global pandemic and circumstances continue to change rapidly. Many people are looking for absolute certainty at a time when there is none. Despite our best planning, it is likely that we could still face numerous disruptions to the school year with little or no notice. We believe this plan will allow us to adapt, adjust and respond flexibly to changing conditions.
There is no one perfect solution that will meet the needs of every single person affiliated with the Highland Local School District. However, it is my hope that we can continue to work collectively on behalf of our school community.
At the end of the plan, parents/guardians have the opportunity to offer feedback and complete a brief transportation survey. We look forward to your input.
We are all doing our best during this unprecedented time. I am certain that together we will remain #HighlandStrong!
2020-21 Reopening Plan (DRAFT)
Catherine Aukerman, Superintendent
