Principal's Message

May 2022

​Dear Highwood Families,
Can you believe that there are only two months left of the 2021-2022 school year?!?  Covid has challenged all of us again this year, but we truly thank everyone for ensuring that your child is healthy when attending school and for continuing to follow many Covid protocols even though it is not mandatory to do so any more.  Your choices are why many of the staff and students have remained healthy.
Many Highwood students are hockey fans and with the playoff starting up, we encourage students to wear their favourite hockey team's jersey on game day.  We anticipate a C of Red at Highwood School! (But we also respect jerseys from other teams!)
Here are a few reminders for the month of May:
2021-2022 Fees- please pay
Inform the school of any change to personal information
Volunteer clearance
Wearing appropriate footwear
Parking around the school
Important May dates                                                                 
 
2021-2022 Fees- please pay
In your PARENT PowerSchool account, you will see any 2021-2022 school fees that haven't been paid yet.  All students that have stayed for lunch at school will be charged a Lunchroom fee.  The school uses this money to pay for supervisors to look after students while they eat their lunch.  There may also be fieldtrip fees that are posted.  We ask that you pay all fees online as soon as possible. 
Inform the school of any changes to personal information
It is extremely important that the school has the most current information as possible.  If you've changed your home address, cell phone number, work phone number, or emergency contact people, please let us know immediately.  It is also important for us to know about any changes to health information (i.e. allergies; medications) and legal matters (i.e. custody agreements; restraining orders).
Volunteer Clearance
Thank you to the many people who have completed their volunteer clearance and have helped out on fieldtrips!  We have many volunteer opportunities in the remainder of the school year and would encourage more people to complete their volunteer clearance.  To do so, please bring your photo ID to the school office and a letter will be provided to you to either bring to the police station or use online to complete the volunteer clearance process.
Wearing Appropriate Footwear
As the weather improves, it is common to want to wear sandals to school.  For the safety of the students, we ask that students wear running shoes to school as they will be playing outside for recess, which includes climbing on the play structure.  Physical Education classes are also held outside more often, which will require students to run, kick balls, skip, etc. in their running shoes.
Parking Around the School
Parking around Highwood before and after school can be VERY CRAZY.  We continue to receive complaints from neighbours about cars blocking their driveways/ garages and even parking in their actual driveway!  PLEASE be kind and considerate to our neighbours and NOT block their driveways. It is very important that you pass this message on to family members (i.e. grandparents; aunties/uncles; family friends) who drive your children to and from school as we have noticed that many of these drivers who block driveways are not parents.
Important May Dates
Monday, May 2 @ 7:00pm: School Council Meeting (online)
Friday, May 6: Monday/Wednesday kindergarten attends school
May 9-13: Kindergarten-Grade 4 ELEV8 Lacrosse (in-school).  Thank you to school council who paid for this experience for all of the students!

Friday, May 27: Monday/Wednesday kindergarten attends school
