Rosa GutierrezIt is with deep regret that the Highland School District must share that one of our beloved community members and district employees passed away unexpectedly today due to an accident involving a district school bus and district vehicle. Students on the bus were not injured but Rosa Gutierrez, a seven year Highland employee and lifetime resident, passed away.  Rosa worked in the kitchen and at Marcus Whitman Cowiche Elementary School where she enjoyed interacting with the staff and students.  She always had a smile and sincerely cared for everyone around her.  Rosa was an amazing person with a huge heart and was dearly loved by all. We are in shock and are heartsick.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
