HOMECOMING PLANS UPDATE: Due to the limitations and recommendations from the CDC and the Governor’s office, Highlands High School administration collaborated with the senior class officers regarding Homecoming, which usually takes place during football season.

SCHOOL CALENDARS: Families should have received the annual Highlands School District Calendar publication in the mail. Extra calendars are available at all school buildings and the Administrative Center. A PDF version of the school calendar is available here.
