Pre-K class will be attending. Any perspective students of Kindergarten

As of 5:00 P.M., Thursday, April 5, the deadline comes to a close to
register as a write-in candidate for School Board Trustee. We have two
individuals, Deb Davison and Jason Laws, who are seeking election for
the 1-year term. They will be on the May 8, 2018 ballot.
The voters of Highwood School District will also be voting on the
renewal of the building reserve levy. The current building reserve levy
is a five year levy and has reached the 5th year. Although the State of
Montana allows school districts to lengthen the duration of building
reserve levies and/or permissively levy funds for this same purpose,
the board of trustees chose to seek renewal of the levy for the same
duration of 5 years and at the same value as in the past,
$55,000/year. This levy provides the school district funds for
the purpose of equipping, furnishing, construction,
improving or repair and maintenance of school buildings or systems
contained herein, as needed for school purposes in the district.
To name just a few needs, the district is facing a major sewer repair
to the locker rooms this summer as well as the replacement of aging
water lines for the sprinkler system. We truly appreciate your
continual support to maintain the building and grounds. See you May 8,
between noon and 8:00 P.M. for the election!
