High Point Highlights

High Point Estates Neighborhood Newsletter

Good Health & Happiness!

Greetings Neighbors,

It's November and we may sometimes wonder where the year went. Thanksgiving is coming and we have a lot to be thankful for, even in these trying times. We hope all of our High Point Homeowners continue to stay healthy, happy, and safe by practicing the Six C's which are: Cover up with a mask, Clean your hands, Care for yourself, and avoid Crowds, Close Contact, and Closed spaces. This is especially true when it comes to indoor holiday gatherings and activities, which can pose a higher risk for spreading the virus that causes COVID-19. Please be sure to refer to the CDC's website for a list of recommendations and activities to stay safe.

Fantastic Fall Wishes,

Monica Croom

Holiday Safety

Tis the season...to be on extra alert! Due to the current pandemic, and considering most homeowners are working from home, High Point Estates WILL NOT offer holiday security patrol this year. However, we can all still work to keep our neighborhood safe and minimize opportunities for crime by doing the following:

  • Illuminate your home - Brighten all dark areas around your home. Leave your front and rear porch lights and any other exterior lighting on from dusk to dawn, and ensure all motion activated lights are in good working condition.
  • Keep your cars locked and clean - Please secure all windows and doors every time you leave your vehicle. Also remove and protect all valuables. Be sure to keep all electronics, laptop bags, shopping bags, packages, purses, loose change, and firearms completely out of sight.
  • Conceal Christmas gifts & packages - Attempt to keep your Christmas tree and gifts away from uncovered windows. Also actively monitor your package deliveries and remove them from your porch as soon as possible. Finally, be mindful of how you break down and dispose of boxes. It is highly recommended that you keep boxes out of site until trash collection day.
  • Know your neighbors - If you see something, say something! Now is the time to get to know your neighbors and encourage them to call 911 if they see anything suspicious. High Point residents can also call our Zone 3 precinct anytime and request a police officer to canvas and ride through the neighborhood if needed.
  • Join us on Nextdoor.com - High Point Estates actively utilizes the free and private social media network Nextdoor.com. Neighbors can stay in the loop and engage in dialogue about safety and various community concerns.

Annual Holiday Progressive Party 🎄

Out of an abundance of caution, our Annual Progressive Party has been cancelled this year. We look forward to bringing back many fun neighborhood events as soon as it is safe to do so.
