‘Family First’ Night is February 4

The Highland Schools is pleased to offer the 2nd Annual “Family First” Night on Monday, February 4. This district-wide initiative is an opportunity for our Highland families to spend an uninterrupted evening together! With the multitude of school events and activities scheduled on any given night, the Highland Administration understands that it can be difficult to enjoy an evening as a family unit. In an effort to encourage a dedicated “family night,” the school district is offering one night free from homework (with no tests on February 5) athletic events or other extra-curricular activities so that families can connect and spend quality time together. We hope that you are able to enjoy your night together!

Winter Weather / School Closing Information

As we approach the winter season, the following i­­nformation may help you better understand the process the District uses when making the decision to open or close school, offer a two-hour delayed start or resort to an early release due to inclement weather.

These decisions are based upon a careful analysis of relevant factors, such as:

  • Information on road conditions from transportation staff, local law enforcement and state, county and township road crews (as warranted); Please keep in mind that road conditions can vary dramatically throughout the district;    
  • Amount of accumulated snow and ice;
  • Whether precipitation is expected to continue throughout the day;
  • Temperature and wind chill (wind chills at or below -15°F to -20°F during key walking and waiting-for-bus times are given special consideration);
  • Impact on our transportation fleet (school bus diesel fuel begins to gel at an ambient temperature of 0 degrees);
  • Weather predictions (including those from our own satellite system and local radar);
  • Timing of storm;
  • Building conditions (is there electricity and heat?);
  • Parking lot conditions;
  • What other surrounding districts are doing.
