A Note From The Principal


Welcome Back Highland Hawks!

Dear Families,

Welcome to Highland Elementary School!  For those of you who are returning to Highland, we are looking forward to another fantastic school year.  We would also like to welcome our new students and families to our school.  We are confident that you will have a great experience at Highland and that you will quickly be immersed in the wonderful school family that makes Highland so special.  

Highland is home to approximately 700 students in kindergarten through fifth grade.  Highland opened its doors to students in the fall of 2007 under the direction of Nan Wooten.  Since then, we have grown from 18 classrooms to 31 classrooms for this school year.  

The best part about Highland is the students, staff, and families that work together to make our school the best that it can be.  Our teachers and staff are incredibly dedicated and work extremely hard to meet the unique needs of each and every student.  Our parents and families are are very supportive of Highland.  Please consider joining our PTO!    

It is with great excitement that I welcome you to Highland.  I look forward to another great school year.

Sincerely, 

Holly Wroblewski

A Note From The Assistant Principal


Greetings Hawks!

Dear Highland Families,

Buses

We have 5 buses that transport about 300 students to and from school every day. We are fortunate to have 5 excellent drivers that treat the safety and well-being of your students as their number one priority.  Please be patient with our drivers as they learn their routes and make necessary adjustments. It is important to always allow at least a 15-minute window for drop-off and pickup.

-Some of our bus numbers have changed this year. Below I have listed the old numbers and their new numbers. Their routes will remain the same. Only the bus number will change.

Old number             New number

115     ----------------    347

347     ----------------    348

116     ----------------    349

-Bus routes are established by the transportation department, not the school or the driver.

-Per ABSS Board Policy: no daycare transportation is provided. Students cannot be dropped off at a babysitter’s or relative’s house for the purpose of childcare. All students will be dropped off at their residence. 


Sincerely,

Erin Millspaugh
Assistant Principal
Highland Elementary School
