Dear Highland Hills Parent/Guardian:
Welcome Back! I am the principal at Highland Hills Elementary (HHE) and I am excited and ready to welcome all our students back on campus for the 2021-22 school year! This pandemic has caused many hardships, yet I am focused on all students’ achieving at high levels.
As your school leader, I assure you, Highland Hills is a school Where Students Come First! Every staff member is committed to providing the highest level of quality instruction to ensure student success. We encourage all students to believe in themselves and give 100% effort to their academics. Every morning our students say, “I believe in myself and I will do my best. Belief + Effort = Success.” Please encourage your child/children to always try their best when studying.
I’ve included some campus-wide general procedures and reminders that are best practices for our school:
**Breakfast is served in the cafeteria from 7:15-7:45 a.m. School begins at 8:00 and the tardy bell is 8:05. Please make sure to bring your child early so they have enough time to finish breakfast and get to class by 8:00.
**After 8:05 am (tardy bell) all parents/guardians MUST enter the main entrance on Rock Glen to sign in your child at the front office.
**Instructional time is important. Please make any necessary doctor/dental appointments late in the day. Please keep in mind the latest to sign out your child is 2:45 p.m. Parents/Guardians must present an ID when requesting early release of a student. If the appointment is early in the day, please return to school with a doctor or dental note and your child will be counted present for the entire day.
**Due to the pandemic, lunch with your child is not allowed at this time.
**Highland Hills spirit, college and Super Hero t-shirts may be worn on Fridays with blue jeans or when designated on “special dress days”.
**Students who bring cell phones to school must turn them off during the instructional day. In case of an emergency, please contact the main office. Cell phones will be confiscated if used during the instructional day. (fees may apply after 2 warnings)
Dismissal locations at the end of the day are as follows:
*Pre-K (Pre-K building by Dollarhide) *Kinder (in the gym) *1st (doors by café) *2nd (side doors on Glamis)
1st and 2nd grade students wait in the building and parents must come to the door to pick up their child
*3rd grade (Corner of Dollarhide and Glamis) *4th grade (Rock Glen entrance by flagpole) *5th grade (kinder ramp)
**No parking on the fire lane. Parents, park in the parking lot to keep traffic moving. This will help avoid traffic congestion.
**If you park across the street you must escort your child/children to campus. Remember safety first!
If interested in volunteering, please check our district website for guidelines or contact FACE specialist.
