Nestled in the woods in the southeast corner of St. Paul, Highwood Hills serves not only the students but also their families with classes, events and activities guided by SPPS Achieves Strategic Plan, and enhanced by the Saint Paul Parks and Rec as well as other dedicated partners! Our school believes in educating the whole child. Students thrive in our calm and nurturing school community where we provide social, emotional, and academic support in all major areas of their educational activies and enrichment.
Dear Families: As we enter our 3rd week of Distance Learning, I hope that you are all getting used to this platform for learning. It is important that you connect with us, primarily through your child’s teacher for assistance if you are still having trouble accessing information, difficulty with the assignments or just internet problems and connectivity. The district has been very generous in making sure that hot spots are provided to all those who do not have internet connection, so please contact your child’s teacher and take advantage of the resource and opportunity! As you may already know, this year, Ramadan begins on April 24 and ends on May 24 with the celebration of Eid al-Fitr or the “Festival of the Breaking of the Fast. Many Muslims, including some of your children, will be fasting, which could add more stress on their school work and expectations. If school work is getting very difficult due to fasting, please let your child’s teacher know as soon as possible so that assignment modification and other accommodations may be considered. As we navigate this new learning platform, I know that this year’sRamadan is going to look and feel very different for many of you, especially because your home is now turned into a virtual classroom. Know that Highwood Hills staff and families are with you throughout these challenging times, and we are eager to help in any way possible. In addition to the support that Highwood Hills gives its students and families, please also reach out for support via familysupport.spps.org. Through this website, you could access a number of support systems that have been made available to you, including, but not limited to meal delivery. Thank you again for your help and indulgence in your child’s education. We very much look forward to reconnecting with you in person very soon. In the meantime, stay safe, stay healthy.
