YEARBOOK MEMORIES

Hello fellow Scots! Yearbook wants to hear from you! Our theme this year is "On Our Own, But Not Alone" and we would like for you to share your memories with us. If we are able, we would love to include your voices in the yearbook to come. Please feel free to answer any and/or all the questions in this form: https://forms.gle/ghmpN6XgRY7Xsp5t7 ...as many times as you want. Just click on the link to the form again after you submit the previous one.

COVID UPDATE-

With Covid cases on the rise we want to remind everyone that all students sent home from school not feeling well who display flu/cold/covid symptoms will need a NEGATIVE Covid Test Result to return to school. Your student will receive from HHS a Covid Home test and a Letter of Test Attestation when they are sent home. Please administer the test and fill out the form the day they are to return. If it is negative send the filled-out form to school with your student and have them bring the form to the nurse's office to be cleared to return to classes. Students must BOTH test negative and return the form to be allowed back to class. If your student tests positive, please inform us and that begins the standard Covid quarantine time as usual. If you have any questions, please contact the Health Office at Highlands: 566-3465 ext. 21856 or 21858.
