Highland Hills Afternoon Announcement for Wednesday, January 13, 2021

  

  • 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. 

 

  • The 5th grade boys basketball team got their season started off right on Monday night with a 50-14 victory over Corydon.  Ethan Noble led the way with 18 points which included 3 three pointers and Hudson Smith scored 8.  The entire team played amazing defense, and didn’t give up a single point in the second half.  Great team win!  

 

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

 

  • The wrestling event originally scheduled for 1-14-21 vs Parkview has been rescheduled (not canceled)  for 2-15-21.

  • 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.

 

 

Good luck to any of our Jaguars that perform or play this evening. 

Remember to STAY HUMBLE, WORK HARD, and BE KIND!
