Happenings on the Hill:

Year 2020 is off to a great start! We would like to “Welcome” everyone back to school.

Report Cards will be sent out Thursday, January 9, 2020.

The Hills Chapel walking track has been paved. Plans to beautify the walking track are in the works.  Dirt will have to be moved. Soon, you and your family will be able to use the track at your convenience.  Check back for the opening date of the track.

Don’t be alarmed if you see deputies on campus.  We are pleased to announce the Prentiss County Sherriffs Department and the Prentiss County School District have entered into an agreement that allows deputies to be on every campus each day.  With this agreement comes extra security for staff and students. Great accomplishment!!!!

Research indicates that poor school attendance is a contributing factor to reduced reading proficiency. Students that are absent should submit a parent excuse letter or a doctor’s excuse within two days of returning to school.  A parent letter can be downloaded from the counselor page.

Students can now purchase fresh produce, yogurt, and other healthy snack options in the concession stand during their afternoon break.
