High Hills Elementary School, “A School That Works,” serves students in grades four and five.  Back to school orientation is scheduled for Thursday, August 11.  Fourth grade orientation is from 9:00 until 10:30 a.m., and fifth grade orientation is from 1:00 until 2:30 p.m.  PTA membership dues and lunch money will be accepted during this event.  Students can also purchase a “Panther Pride” t-shirt and back pack.  Postcards with class assignments will be mailed prior to the orientation.

Supply lists were sent out in the May newsletter and are posted on the school website and Walmart.  Copies are available in the High Hills office upon request.  Parents are always encouraged to visit and actively participate in school events as volunteers.  Please contact the school office for a volunteer packet.

Passes to enter the Rhodes gate (the new gate across from Oakland Drive) of Shaw Air Force Base will be issued, one to each parent or guardian of each student.  One may also be issued to another designated person if they will regularly transport the student to and from school.  Passes will be non-transferable and will be issued during the orientation.

Drop-Off/Pick-Up Procedures:  Drop off time for car riders will begin at 7:00 a.m. when adult supervision is provided.  Car riders should be dropped off and picked up at the designated area in front to the school.  For your child’s safety, please do not drop students off in the school parking lot or on Frierson Road.
