WELCOME TO HIGHLANDS GROVE
In order to create uniformity throughout Polk County Public Schools, school bell schedules will change beginning in the new school year 2014-2015. Our new start time will be 8:00am, and our new end time will be 3:00pm.
INFORMATION ON BULLYING AND CYBERBULLYING
Additionally there is information on our district website under students, parents, and staff. You can type the word “bullying” in the search box and resources are available. These resources include definitions, ways to prevent, reporting mechanisms, a question and answer section, and links to additional resources.
The federal government also has a page on cyberbullying that you can access...CLICK HERE.
