Dear Parents and Community Members:

 On behalf of the Atlantic Highlands, Highlands and Henry Hudson Regional Boards of Education, staff and administration, I extend a sincere welcome back for the 2017-2018 school year.  The “back-to-school” phenomenon affects all of us, and therefore we wish to extend a “welcome message” to the entire community. Also, our outstanding and dedicated staff members in all three schools are truly looking forward to year filled with a variety of learning experiences and accomplishments for your students.  Both the Atlantic Highlands and Highlands communities have high expectations for our schools and everyone is welcomed to join us in supporting the growth of our talented students.  Back-to-school is a time of new beginnings, from little ones walking into school for the first time to high school seniors quickly approaching graduation, as well as new teachers and administrators, all eager to teach and inspire.  Therefore, as the Tri-District we are thrilled to welcome our new staff members for the 2017-2018 school year.
