Principal's Message

March 2021

​Dear Highwood Families,
It's March already and it's hard to believe that almost a year ago we had to all switch to emergency online teaching.  So much has changed since then and we've learned a lot about what to do and what not to do to ensure that everyone is safe.  Our teachers have worked hard to maintain their classroom communities by creating rich and engaging in learning environments.  At Highwood we are continuing our Covid safety protocols by keeping students with only their classroom cohorts, regular handwashing/ sanitizing, physical distancing, not sharing items, limiting the amount of people entering our school, and mask wearing.  Please help us by ensuring that your child has an extra mask in their backpack as we are finding that an increasing amount of students do not.  Even though we have extras in the office, it would still be a good idea for students to have an extra mask with them.
​In the month of March we have parent-teacher conferences.  For those in HUB, your interviews will take place on March 11 and 12 and are not booked through the school.  CBE may have sent you an email with instructions.  For those families who have students attending Highwood in-person classes, you may be thinking… “Didn't we already have conferences in February?"  Yes, we did!  These interviews on March 25 and 26 are for those parents who want to follow-up with teachers to see if there has been any progress since February report cards or want to discuss goals and strategies for their child as they finish off the last few months of the 2020-2021 school year.  If you do not think it is necessary to meet with the teachers, you are not required to book an interview.  Please note that the teachers may request to meet with you.  More information will be emailed to you soon about the conference booking process.

March 5: Early Dismissal (Monday/Wednesday kindergarten attends school)
