Back-to-School Information for HHS Students & Parents

On Thursday, August 15, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., Highland High School will be open for families and students to pick up both their 2019-20 schedule, as well as the spring testing reports. Students will also receive an updated student ID on that day and their theme t-shirts for this school year to be worn on Wednesday, August 21. Final Forms must be completed/updated before any materials are released, so please have all information in Final Forms completed before then.

  • Last name A-L: Materials available in the lower level lobby from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
  • Last name M-Z: Materials available in the upper level lobby from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Students who are unable to attend on this date will receive their schedules on the first day of school in their first period class, which will be posted on the office window.  Testing reports may then be picked up during Open House from 6:30-8 p.m. on Thursday, August 22. Following Open House, we will mail any remaining testing reports to the student’s home. 

FINAL FORMS: Please Update for New School Year

The Final Forms for your child must be updated every year. Log in and verify that the information is correct. If your child plans on playing a sport during the year, be sure to select that activity to include the athletic forms. Once you have completed the parent portion, your student will receive a notification email. The student can then log into Final Forms and complete their portion. Both steps must be completed before the student will be given his or her ID, schedule or testing report*. If you forgot your password, there is a help link at the bottom of the screen within Final Forms.

*Any student who is new to the district must validate his or her Final Form account from a school computer. Computers will be available on August 15 at the high school when students stop in to pick up their schedules and spring testing reports.
