Highlands Elementary is currently undergoing construction for a new roof. The project was planned to be finished by the first day of school, but construction was put on hold due to shipping delays and issues with heavy rain.

Now, students will relocate to the Cavalry Hills campus at 2800 Poplar Ave until further notice. All school operations will take place at the Cavalry Hills. School officials say they are working to get students back at Highlands as quickly as possible.

A Highlands parent meeting is happening on July 30 at 5:30 p.m. at the AAA Theater located at 4800 Sparkman Drive. All parents and guardians are welcome to learn more about the transition.
