Welcome Back!

Hello HHES Families,

We hope you all had a wonderful summer full of adventures. This is going to be an amazing year and we would like to officially welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year!

I know many of you are wondering who your child's teacher is going to be and we are working hard to get that information out to you all as soon as possible. There is a lot of behind the scenes action that needs to happen prior to releasing the class lists. Thank you for understanding.

We encourage you to follow our Facebook page to see what is going on around our campus.

We hope to see you all at our back to school night on August 25th from 5:00 - 6:00 pm!

Mr. Robertson & Mrs. Colpron

Lunch & Breakfast Change

This year students who do not qualify for the free and reduced lunch program will be charged for a school lunch or breakfast if they take one. This is a change from last year.

We will be sending home free and reduced forms with your child at the start of school, if you are interested in filling one out. Please return the form to our front office or your child's classroom teacher.

If you want to add money to your child's account you can do this through Skyward Family Access, or you can bring money to our front office and we will add it to your child's account.


Please remember that school begins daily at 8:00 am. It is important that students arrive to school on time so that they don't miss valuable learning opportunities.

Thank you for helping us get our students to school on-time.

School ends daily at 2:15 pm, except for Wednesdays when it ends at 1:15.

Do you want to help out at our school? Any person who is volunteering, must past a background check and be cleared to volunteer. We have a new way to submit and process volunteer applications.
