Attendance, Tardies and Early Checkouts
At Highland City Elementary, every minute of every day is important for student success. Please be sure your student arrives on time. Our bell to go in classrooms rings at 7:55 AM and the tardy bell rings at 8:00 AM. Early checkouts are not recommended. Our students are receiving instruction until the end of the school day, 3:00 PM.
Early Dismissal Days
Polk County Schools will dismiss two and a half hours early on designated days to allow for teacher work days and teacher planning. Highland City students will be dismissed at 12:30 on
When students are receiving a breakfast or lunch from the cafeteria, they should not bring additional items from home to the cafeteria. Food items are allowed for specific grade levels for snack time during the school day, but are not allowed in school hallways before or after school. Thanks for your help with this!
Reminders for Car Riders and Walkers
To help us in arrival and dismissal, please remember:
No drop-offs or walk-ups before 7:30 AM. (There is no supervision on campus until 7:30.)
All students wanting to eat breakfast must be in the cafeteria by 7:45 AM.
Please do not stop on the crosswalks around the school. This is dangerous for our students who walk to school as well as the crossing guards.
Don’t forget your cart tag! This is a precaution we take to keep your child safe.
