Yoga, Mindfulness, Relaxation Training Returns to HMS

Thanks to a generous support of The Highland Foundation for Educational Excellence, the Yoga & Mindfulness Training has returned to Highland Middle School. Yoga techniques are taught regularly in physical education classes at HMS, and this time around, a “relaxation” component has been added to supplement the program. The goal of this initiative is to increase the physical and emotional health and wellness of students at the middle school level.

As part of the newly introduced relaxation component, Eden Koz, mindfulness consultant and founder of “Just Be,” will offer parent and student workshops on the topics of knowing the signs and symptoms of anxiety and depression, basic ways to reduce and manage anxiety, healthy coping skills for teens and adults, as well as an overview of mindfulness and meditation practices.

Winter Weather & When It's Necessary to Close School

We understand that the decision to open or close schools, offer a two-hour delayed start, or resort to an early release in bad weather has an enormous effect on all of our families. The following information may help you to better understand the process we use when making these types of decisions, which are based upon a careful analysis of all relevant factors, such as:

  • Information on road conditions from transportation staff, local law enforcement and road crews (as warranted); we must give careful consideration to the most dangerous roads in the District; they can be treacherous, even if your road or street looks clear.

Social internet networking sites are an effective method to communicate and exchange information. Highland Schools employs Twitter and Facebook accounts as another media outlet for our community. However, there have been times that school personnel and/or law enforcement agencies are made aware of derogatory, vulgar and profane comments posted on student Facebook pages, or similar social networking sites. If your student has an account, insist on monitoring the postings and pages closely. As parent, you should have all login and password information for your children's accounts.
