Highland
Elementary School
Parent Involvement

Tradition and pride since 1895 is the hallmark of Highland's existence. Parents are always welcome at Highland Elementary!

School Visitors

Parents and guests are asked to enter the main corridors of the school closest to the main office. Visitors must present a driver’s license or state ID, sign in at the Lobby Guard kiosk, and wear a visitor badge during their time in the building. Please sign out at the end of the visit.

Classroom Visits

We welcome the involvement of parents and guardians in their children's learning. Teacher conferences must, however, be made with prior arrangement with the teacher. Classes are not to be interrupted to inquire about a child, drop off an item, or just to say "hello." To ensure every child is getting his/her educational best, we must guarantee the greatest amount of learning time that we can. Therefore, interruptions are too costly to allow. Teaching and learning are our priorities. Classroom visitors are limited to 45 minutes at a time. Arrangements for exceptions can be discussed and approved by the classroom teacher. Visitors are not permitted to interact with the other children in the classroom (unless instructed to do so by the teacher) or interfere with classroom instruction.

Authorized Visitors

All Board of Education representatives, student teachers, and parents who have checked with the office are considered to be authorized visitors. After the office personnel is made aware of their presence, they will be escorted or directed to the classroom unless the teacher is expecting them. In the latter case, the teacher will be notified that they are in the building and they are coming to the room.
