If you have lost something, please check the Lost and Found in the daycare office to see if someone has turned it in. Please make sure that you check for your belongings there as soon as you discover that they are lost. We periodically empty the Lost and Found, and unclaimed items are given to charitable organizations.

Proposed Highland Elementary Redistricting Maps
The Alamance-Burlington Board of Education will hold a public hearing about a proposal to redistrict a portion of the current Highland Elementary School attendance zone to E. M. Holt Elementary in order to alleviate overcrowding. If approved, the move would become effective for the 2019-2020 school year.

2019-2020 School Year
You do NOT need to fill this form out if you have existing tags from the previous school year.
ONLY STUDENTS WHO ARE CAR RIDERS NEED TO REGISTER!!!
As an additional safety measure, we require all cars have a Highland-issued Car Rider Tag for any students who will be picked up via our car rider line. Any cars who do not have a Highland-issued Car Rider Tag will be directed to park and walk into our front office for release of students. This includes all students who will be picked up in our daycare car rider line.
Each family will be issued two Car Rider Tags. If more are needed, they can be purchased for a nominal fee of $2 at our front office. ID will be required in order to purchase additional Car Rider Tags.
Car Rider Tags will be issued at Open House, on the first day of school, or upon registering your child at Highland during the school year.
If you need to update your car tag from the school year, please fill out the registration form. There will be an option to select that you need an updated sticker. These will also be distributed at Open House or on the first day of school.
For the safety of all Highland students, if you arrive for pickup without a car tag, you will need to come in to the front office and wait until the end of car dismissal (approximately 3:00) to sign your child out. ID will be required. Thank you for your patience as this will ensure all students get home safely and securely.
