-When will Living Tree be updated?
Living Tree as a platform is being discontinued and our transition to ParentSquare will occur at the beginning of August.

Until then, we are posting everything in 3 places: Living Tree, Highland Park Facebook group, and this website. We appreciate your patience as we navigate this transition.

Water bottle, snack, and backpack with class specific materials.

Yes, but for security purposes we cannot share online, but we will have them posted on Rally Day.
