    New to ABSS? Here’s how to get started...

    Save Time — Get Started Today! The online enrollment works on any device with internet connectivity: computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone.



    All returning students (as well as new students) must be registered online this summer before school starts!  

    • NEW-TO-HIGHLAND Rising Kindergarteners:  Online registration is open!  See link above.
    • NEW-TO-HIGHLAND Rising 1st-5th Graders:  Online registration is open!  See link above.
    • RETURNING STUDENTS that are rising 1st-5th Graders:  Please update enrollment information.  All communication will be received at the email address used to complete the initial online registration.  Please check your email (spam folder) for an email from Hollis_Wroblewski@abss.k12.nc.us.  The subject of the email is: IMPORTANT - Update Info about your HLE Student for 2020-2021.  You will need to open that email and click on the individualized link to update your enrollment for your child for the 20-21 school year. An individualized email (with an individualized student link) should come to you for each ABSS student you have currently enrolled.  

    A special note for all Returning Students:  If you have had a change in address or we have received returned mail from the address that is on file, updated proofs of residence will be required prior to school starting.  

    If you have any issues, please email Kelly Brooks directly at Kelly_Brooks@abss.k12.nc.us.  



    Kindergarten & Grades 1-5
    On Friday, August 7th (after 6pm), Highland will send out connect ed phone calls to all parents in kindergarten and grades 1-5 letting you know who your child's teacher is!  If you have NOT registered online or updated your enrollment information, you will NOT receive confirmation as to your child’s teacher.  This year, we will not send postcards to students in grades 1-5.    


    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 7th.  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.

      Clever Portal
    You can access several online resources through the Clever Portal above.  Highland encourages the use of Imagine (literacy or math) and Achieve 3000 (Grades 3-5).  
    If you have not previously logged into your child's Google account on your home device, you will initially "log in through google" using your child's full school Gmail address.  (It will not work using a parent's gmail account.)  Once this information is entered, it will prompt you to enter your child's google username and password.  
    Technology Support through ABSS
    If you need any usernames/passwords, please contact your child's teacher directly.  Please allow a grace period for teacher response to these requests as it does take time.

    Kindergarten Staggered Entry
    For Kindergarteners, the first two days of school (August 17 & 18) will be staggered entry.
    This means that you and your child (one adult only) will come to school at an individually scheduled time to see the classroom.
    Kindergarten teachers will be calling you soon to set up an appointment (approximately 15 minutes long).  Because teachers will be scheduled throughout the day on August 17 & 18, the official first day of school for Kindergarten will be Wednesday, August 19.
    During this appointment, your child will:
    Meet the teacher
    Work individually with the teacher to be screened for kindergarten readiness
    See the classroom
    During this appointment you will:
    Be introduced to the teacher
    Receive a chromebook and information for accessing important learning tools
