Highland Hills Afternoon Announcement for Tuesday, January 12, 2021

  • Reminder that tomorrow (Jan. 13) will be a virtual day for ALL of our students.  They will follow the revised schedule so teachers can have an in-service.

  • If you have chosen the in-person option for your student this quarter and they need to be absent from school, we ask that they log on to Google Classroom and get their assignments.  We are discouraging any in-person student from logging in to Google Meet when they are absent from school. The rationale behind this is due to safety concerns.  We want to ensure that we have an accurate account of virtual and in-person students each day.  In a school of over 1700 students, safety and accurate attendance taking are critically important.  Thank you so much for your cooperation.

  • I need all students to make sure their profile picture on their Google Meets is their actual picture of themselves.

  • Please return any library books that you may have out.

 

  • Report Cards for all of our students have been sent out in the mail. You should receive them sometime this week.

 

 

  • Last night the 6th Grade Boys Basketball won 44-2!  The Most Outstanding Player: Derrick Foster with 20 points!

 

  • The Boys 5/6th basketball game on 1-13-21 vs North Harrison has been canceled.

 

  • There will be NO School on Monday, January 18, to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The office will be closed.  Please refer to the corporation website for the detailed calendar.

  • Please be aware that the New Albany-Floyd County Schools Technology department has options for students and families to receive technical support while on virtual or E-learning days. Your first choice (preferred) is to use our Incident-IQ Help Desk system. Secondly, you can call into our support line:  1) Visit https://nafcs.incidentiq.com/ -if prompted, enter your school Google login information 2) By phone: 812-542-4700 option 1, on school days between 7:30 AM – 3:30 PM -if your call goes to voicemail, please leave a message with your name, school  and overview of the issue you are experiencing.  Please do not call your school building directly and ask for tech support. The options above are the best methods to make a request.
