Corinne McKeller, 2021
Highlanders were welcomed back for the 2019-20 school year on August 28th. Students attended different assemblies based on their grade levels, and met with their class 4 teachers. They were also told about some of the changes to the campus and schedule this year.
While the atrium and field house are being renovated, CTE and PE classes have been moved to different locations. All gym classes are either at the Cummings, St. Anne’s, or Edgerly schools. Most of the CTE programs are at the Edgerly or other locations in the main building. Click here for a full list of the program locations. Students will be bused to and from the outside locations. For a schedule for the shuttles, click here.
The school library has also been relocated to room 336.
The construction for the new building is set to be completed for the start of the 2020-21 school year. Construction updates can be found on the school website. There is also a link on the building project home page with a live camera feed from several angles.
The Green Line Extension Project also has had a considerable impact on travel around the city. The Broadway Bridge in Ball Square, the Washington Street Bridge in Union Square, and the Medford Street Bridge directly behind SHS have been closed and will remain closed until 2020. Traffic in the city has increased due to these closures, so remember to plan accordingly and leave ample time to get to school. You may sign up here for weekly alerts from the city.
The fall sports seasons are starting, with soccer, cross country, golf, girls’ volleyball, football, and cheerleading. Access the fall sports schedule here.
The club fair will be held during last block on Wednesday, September 4th. With nearly fifty clubs and activities, there’s something for everyone. See a complete list here.
