This number is for NON-EMERGENCY calls. If you have an emergency, call 911. 
In an ongoing effort to promote a safe learning environment, the district is providing the community with an anonymous tip line phone number. The purpose of the tip line is to allow the community the ability to share information anonymously regarding issues that may put others’ safety in danger.  Community members can report information about drugs, weapons, alcohol, violence or any threat to safety.  While this can be done anonymously, the more information given (including one’s name), the greater the ability the district has to do a complete investigation and resolve the situation quickly.

Supply Lists for 2020-2021 School Year!

Dear K-4 families,  
Below is this year's school supply list for grades K through 4. I know that there are many great sales in August for these items. However, the school situation is ever changing. You may want to wait until closer to the first day of school before you purchase. 
Also, we are asking for disinfectant wipes for the classrooms as we do every year. We understand that the supply for these items may be limited. If you cannot find them, it is not a problem. These are to supplement the supply that we have. 
If you have a student at Highland, the lists there are teacher specific. You will see those lists as teacher assignments become available. 
Mrs. Borroni
