The Highland Schools is pleased to offer the 3rd Annual “Family First” Night on Monday, March 16. 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 March 17) athletic events or other extra-curricular activities so that families can connect and spend quality time together. We hope you enjoy your night together as a family!
