The faculty and staff of High Hills Elementary School excitedly welcome all returning and new students to the 2021-2022 school year. The new school year begins Tuesday, August 17, 2021. High Hills, a proud Leader in Me School and Home of the Panthers, serves 4th and 5th grade students only.  In order to limit the number of people in the building at one time and to continue physical distancing, a drop-in orientation will be held Monday, August 16 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.  Parents may visit at their convenience to meet their child’s teachers and tour the school. Panther Pride t-shirts will be on sale. Classroom supplies and materials have been purchased for each child through Title 1; however, a few additional items may be requested by the individual teacher. You can check with your child’s teacher to see if other supplies and materials will be needed. All visitors must sign in. 


Drop-off/Pick-up Procedures: Breakfast begins at 7 a.m. Instruction begins at 7:30 a.m. Students will be marked tardy after 7:30 a.m. Parents are able to access the school through the Frierson Road gate and the 441 open-access gate. Drop-off time for car riders will begin at 6:50 a.m. when adult supervision is provided.  Car riders should be dropped off and picked up at the designated area in front of the school.  For your child’s safety, please do not drop students off in the school parking lot or on Frierson Road. Walkers and bike riders from Base housing will be able to enter from the back gate starting at 6:50 a.m.  We look forward to a “PAWSOME” school year!
