ONLINE REGISTRATION FOR ALL STUDENTS
All returning students (as well as new students) must be registered online this summer before school starts! Please check your email for information regarding this process. It may be in your spam folder, so please check there as well. If you have any issues, please email Kelly Brooks directly at Kelly_Brooks@abss.k12.nc.us. All communication will be received at the email address used to complete the online registration.
WILL THERE BE OPEN HOUSE THIS YEAR?
At this time, we are waiting on district protocols to determine what Open House will look like this year. If we are able to have Open House, there will be arranged times for families to come in order to limit the number of people on campus. Please check our website frequently for updates.
WHO WILL MY CHILD’S TEACHER BE THIS YEAR?
On Friday, August 13th (after 6pm), Highland will send out connect ed phone calls to all parents of students in grades 1-5 letting you know who your child's teacher is! Please note that the number you have entered in your updated online enrollment is the number that will be used. If you need to make that change, please do so as soon as possible.
If you have not registered online or updated your enrollment information, you will not receive confirmation as to your child’s teacher.
If you happen to check your child’s PowerSchool account throughout the summer, please note that any assigned teachers listed in PowerSchool may change before August 13th. As a reminder, we are not able to take teacher requests, requests for a change in teacher, nor are we able to place students based on friendships.
A special note for Kindergarteners. Kindergarteners participate in what is called staggered entry. Half of the class attends school August 23, but does not come August 24.
The other half of the class does not come August 23, but does attend school August 24.
All kindergarteners come August 25.
You will receive a special postcard in the mail letting you know who your child’s teacher is as well as which day your child will come for their first day of school!
We are excited to welcome all of our Highland Hawks back to school in August!
See you soon!

2021-2022 School Year
At this time, we will allow morning walkers only. Walkers should follow the sidewalk along the car rider line and wait to be directed across our crosswalk. Parents may walk with their child up to the crosswalk. While on campus all persons should wear a mask and socially distance at least 6ft from non-family members.
We will make a determination later in the school year if we are able to allow afternoon walkers to dismiss. For now, all students will be dismissed either by car or bus.
