School News

 Happy 30th Birthday Point Higgins School! 
(Maybe you'll recognize someone you know in the slide show.)
Our Theme of the Week: COURAGE
Courage is being nice to a classmate even when others are not being nice to them.
Courage is asking for help, even when you think others might make fun of you for asking.

 Healthier US  
Point Higgins School was awarded the "Healthier Us" School Challenge from the USDA for being a school that promotes good nutrition and physical activity! 
We are only the 2nd school statewide to receive this award under the new standards set in 2014.


Point Higgins Spirit Wear is on the way and should arrive by Sept. 30th!   


District Policy Guidelines regarding medication at school
All medicine brought to school must accompany the proper district form before office staff can give ANY medication to your child.
Over the counter medicine includes cough drops, cold medicine, tylenol, ibuprofen, etc.   District policy states we cannot give students any herbal medication.
Prescription medicine must be brought to school by the parent (not sent in a backpack) and must also have the proper district form filled out by the parent AND signed by the physician.  Peace Health Pediatrics also has these forms and can fax to us.
