Distribution of School Lunches During Closure

The Highland School District will begin distribution of student lunches during the extended school closure period in Ohio (April 6 through May 1). With the Governor’s current mandatory "Stay at Home'' order, and in an effort to keep our staff members safe, we will be offering school lunch meal “pick-up” on a weekly distribution.

Households who are currently on the lunch program can receive a weekly allotment of their child's school lunches, once a week. Beginning Monday, April 6, lunches will be distributed to families for the entire week. Each lunch bag will contain 5 complete lunches. (Please note, we will not be serving lunches on weekends or scheduled holidays).

All orders must be placed by 12 p.m. on Friday preceding the upcoming week's offering OR parents may sign up for all four weeks when completing the form.  Parents must complete the following “Lunch Distribution Form” in order to receive the lunches. Please note: Lunches will not be available without pre-ordering. LUNCH DISTRIBUTION FORM   

All lunches can be picked up at the main entrance of Highland High School, 4150 Ridge Road, Medina, every Monday from 10-11 a.m.

To adhere to social distancing guidelines, we ask that parents remain in their vehicle. Volunteers will place the items in the trunk or hatchback of each vehicle.

If you have any questions or are unable to complete the form online, please leave a message with the Food Service Department at 330-239-1901, ext. 5512.

Governor Extends School Closure Order Through May 1

During his press conference on March 30, Governor DeWine announced that the current order closing Ohio school buildings will be extended through May 1, consistent with CDC guidance. 

The school district is currently working on additional information that will be communicated to all families. We appreciate your patience as we continue to work through these announcements in real time. 

As students and staff return from Spring Break today, we continue with distance learning opportunities. We remind all families that each student has access to online instruction, that includes Google Classrooms and curriculum materials, through the Clever login at http://support.highlandschools.org.


Information on Upcoming Events at HHS

Below you will find the most current information regarding upcoming events at Highland High School. We will continue to provide updates as the situation evolves.

Local Scholarships: Local scholarships were due on March 6. Applications are being reviewed by each scholarship committee. 

Prom & Graduation: The dates for prom and graduation have not changed to date, but as a precaution, the district has scheduled alternate dates. Please understand that future restrictions and/or public health recommendations may, in fact, prohibit us from holding these events. 

  • Prom is scheduled for May 1. The district has been working with each venue and the DJ over the past several days to determine the availability of alternate dates for prom to occur. As you can imagine, this is not easy in the middle of the wedding and prom season. We have been informed that Thursday, May 28 is available. For now, we are holding both dates. We will continue to look for options as we know more about restrictions and/or public health recommendations.
  • Graduation is currently scheduled for May 23. We will keep that date, but we have also added June 20 at 11 a.m. and July 17 at 6:30 p.m. as possible dates if we need to reschedule. We encourage families to leave all three dates open. 
Changes to AP Testing Announced

On March 20, The College Board announced changes to the Advanced Placement tests for 2020 in response to the Coronavirus. Traditional face-to-face exam administrations will not take place. Students will be able to test from home and be able to choose from two separate dates. Content for most testing has been adjusted to reflect what students would have covered through early March. Information about the reduced scope of content that will be covered on each 2020 AP Exam is currently posted on AP Central®.

Additional preparation resources will be available beginning on March 25. Requirements for portfolio submissions have also changed. Full information, including specific test dates and the free-response question types for every AP exam will be posted by April 3. 

High School Instruction During School Closure

Dear Parents of High School Students, 
We would like to take this opportunity to explain how students will continue to access their coursework during the state-mandated school closure. Teachers have provided instructions to students on how to access electronic materials. Common platforms include Google Classroom, Moodle, online textbooks, Khan Academy and email. Students have accessed these sites previously. The expectation is that your student checks these sites regularly, as it is an opportunity for instruction to continue. Teachers will continue to communicate with students during this closure.
