Highland schools will be closed Friday (1/29/22) due to the current conditions of our gravel roads, city streets, & even some of the lettered/numbered roads. Regular snow day with No travel to Votech, but warmer temps today may allow for evening activities- this is still TBD.

Upon checking roads tonight, I have decided to wait until the morning to make a call on school tomorrow. The sun did wonder for the main roads - I will check gravel and town roads early and announce a final decision in the morning!

Highland Jr. and Snr. High School Parents and Students: When the district implements distance learning days or snow days, students will be given time to complete missing work. A time will be set from the date of return to in-person learning to complete a mandatory homework lab and to be able to complete the missing work. If your student has missing work once we return to in person learning they will be assigned either an after or before school homework lab. If a student does not stay for the homework lab, the missing work will not be accepted. For more specific examples read the homework lab document http://bit.ly/HWKLABHS Please call the high school office for any questions.

Highland Votech Students will not travel to Hannibal tomorrow either; however, many can still attend class via their Chromebooks. All Highland students need to be completing their past assignments from Distance Learning, Hybrid off-attendance days, and AMI days.

LCC1 will be closed tomorrow, Thursday 1/28/21, due to road conditions. In an effort to provide more in-person instruction & full educational days, this day will be a regular snow day with no new work expected of students and the attendance date will need to be made up.

Highland will be closed and utilizing an AMI day tomorrow (Wed 1/27). While the main roads are much better, the gravel roads are still snow packed and ice covered (including the road to HES), some of the town streets are still iced over, & I am confident the conditions will not improve overnight. In fact, the forecast includes more wintry weather right at morning route times.

Highland schools will be closed today, but will run it as an AMI day. Students will have assignments to complete to earn attendance for this day, as it will not be required to be made up. No Votech travel to Hannibal today, but kids can still access classes online. Teachers will not be at school, but will post assignments in Google Classroom, to student email, or have already provided snow day work for this situation.

Students can still access their Google classrooms and work on getting work caught up as we look to return to full in-person tomorrow. Votech students should still be able to access classes online in most cases.
