    Dear Solana Highlands Families,

    K-6 Conversion Exploration

    We continue to be in the exploration phase as we gather input and compile data on next steps. A final decision has not been made. In the meantime, we will be updating information regarding the Conversion Exploration on the below link as it is available. All updates can also be accessed on the Facilities - Capital Programs link on the SBSD website.

    Animals on Campus

    With the exception of service animals, animals are not allowed on District campuses during school hours unless specifically approved by the Principal. Many animals, while well-behaved normally, may act aggressively under the increased input of a school campus where students and adults are moving constantly. School hours are meant to include classroom periods, the period of time before and after school when students are entering and exiting the school, and during after-school activities when students are present. Specifically, 8:10am-3:15pm.

    Parents or guardians walking their animals and the student as part of the arrival or departure process must keep their animals off the school grounds. Animals remaining in vehicles while visiting the campus are not restricted except that owners should keep windows and other openings restricted to prevent children from reaching into the vehicle. Thank you so much for your cooperation and support.

    SBSD Office Closures

    District and school offices will be closed during the Winter Break (Dec. 23, 2019 – Jan 3, 2020).

    On behalf of everyone at Solana Highlands, I want to offer you our best wishes for the holiday season and for a happy and healthy 2020. I hope that over the break you will make space to do what feels right to you to renew and recharge. I hope you have the opportunity to relax, reconnect with your friends and family, and enjoy this break in the academic calendar!

    We look forward to seeing you back on campus on January 6th.
