News Education Highlands School plans kindergarten registration

Kindergarten registration in Highlands will be held on April 3, for the 2013 -2014 school year and will begin for parents, at 10 a.m. in the school’s media center.

At approximately 10:30 a.m. on April 3, Highlands’ school bus driver, Jack Philpot, will begin picking up students aboard one of our activity buses starting at the Highlands United Methodist Church. He will stop at each daycare center to pick up students. They will arrive at Highlands School by 10:50 a.m. PTO volunteers will be on the bus to help with the students.

Students not enrolled in a daycare center may meet before 10:30 a.m. at the Highlands Community Child Development Center, Inc. located at 89 Church Street, Highlands, to catch the bus.

Parents are encouraged to allow their child to ride to school on the bus that day whether or not you plan for your child to ride during the school year. PTO will provide complimentary lunch for students and their parents in the school cafeteria. Registration packets can be picked up at Highlands School or at Highlands Community Child Development Center.

Call the school office at (828) 526-2147 for more information.
