Urgent Remind Update

Recently, Remind announced that effective January 28, 2019, they would stop sending messages to Verizon customers to avoid any fees that Verizon would begin charging to receive Remind texts.  While they are still undergoing negotiations to eliminate this fee, we are taking proactive steps to ensure that you do not incur these charges.

1) Download the Remind app (free) onto your phone.

2) Sign in using your remind account.  If you do not have your login, follow the steps for forgetting the password and login using your phone number.

3) Once you are logged in, you SHOULD see Huntley Hills as one of your accounts.  If you do NOT see Huntley Hills, please resubscribe by choosing JOIN A CLASS and entering the code @huntleyhil. 

4) Exit the app and open your text messages.

5) Find the last Remind text message from Huntley Hills parents.  Respond to this text with @STOPALL.

 
Open Enrollment

Students in the DeKalb County School District (DCSD) are able to apply to enroll at the school of their choice. Open enrollment for the 2019-2020 School Choice program begins on January 7, 2019, at 9 a.m. and closes on February 8, 2019, at 4 p.m.

During that time, district families can plan to attend one of DCSD’s many diverse charter schools, challenging dual immersion language programs, and distinguished magnet campuses during the 2019-2020 school year. Whether it’s at the elementary, middle, or high school level, each DCSD family has the opportunity to choose a school that suits its children’s academic needs.

Students currently enrolled in DeKalb County schools need their student ID number and a parent’s email address. New, private- or home-schooled students need a parent’s email, proof of residence, a birth certificate, a 2018 fall semester report card, a DCSD-issued affidavit of residence, and the student’s latest MAP test scores (for magnet programs only).

Parents with questions and in need of support can make an appointment at the Parent Support Center at 1192 Clarendon Ave, Avondale Estates, GA 30002, by calling 678-676-0050 or 678-676-0035.

PBIS Positive Behavior Intervention System

Our school is now participating in the PBIS program. The term PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Intervention Supports.  PBIS is a research based program that recognizes students for positive behaviors in school.  In addition to recognizing students for positive behavior in the classroom, our program will also extend itself to the cafeteria, restroom, bus, playground, and hallways.  

PBIS is a school-wide initiative.  All students, faculty, and staff will now have uniform expectations for behavior. The great thing about PBIS is that all school staff can recognize a student or classroom for positive behavior. When recognized, a student and/or class will receive a Tiger buck.  The Tiger buck can be redeemed for various incentives and in the Tiger Store on the last Friday of each month.

In addition to the start of the PBIS program, we have also developed an acronym for the term P.A.W.S.   Moving forward, we will use the following behavior expectations school-wide. Students will be expected to do their Personal best, Act Responsibly, Work and play safe, and Show kindness. We have included a copy of the P.A.W.S behavior matrix which you can see by clicking here. Although the teachers have reviewed the matrix with students, you can assist the school by reviewing the matrix at home with your child(ren).   

As always, thank you for your support.  We are really excited about PBIS and the benefits for our students and school.  If you have any questions about PBIS program, please call the school at 678-676-7402.
