School Announcements

  • Penguin Patch




    HES Families,

    Our PTO is offering an exciting opportunity to allow our students the chance to think about others this holiday season. You should have received information about "The Penguin Patch Holiday Shop". This is an event where the children can shop for their family and friends. The information sent home also had a budget envelope to bring back on the day they shop.  Prices of merchandise range from .25 cents to $11. So there could be something for everyone!

    This is not a fundraiser, just a fun opportunity. 

    The event will be next week, December 9-13. Teachers have signed up for class times, but open times will be included Tuesday through Friday for students who missed their class time, forgot their money, etc.

  • Friendly Reminders


    *Please remember there is a Hands Free Mobile Phone Law in the state of Tennessee. Please make sure you are not on your mobile phone, especially in the school zone or car line. Thank you for helping keep our students safe.


    *Students should remain in their cars in the mornings until the doors open at 7:00 a.m. There is no supervision prior to 7:00. This includes Safety Patrols. Thank you for your help with this important safety issue.


    * We have timed morning drop off multiple days, and while no car has waited longer than 5 minutes from the time they entered the line on Andersonville Pike, the line moves much faster between 7:15 and 7:30. Thank you for helping us get our students here so they are in their seats and ready to learn at 7:45.

  • What to Bring to Register a New Student


    We get so excited to welcome new Hound Dogs to our wonderful school! If you are registering your child in Knox County Schools, these are the items that you will need to bring with you to get them signed up:

    • Proof of Birth – Proof of birth may take many forms. Examples include but are not limited to the following:
      • Birth Certificate – issued by any government
      • Passport issued by any nation (translated)
      • Immigration documentation
      • Decree of adoption or other records issued by a court

     The form that proof of birth takes is an area of parental discretion, and schools will accept appropriate documentation as offered.  No one form of documentation is required or preferred over another.



    • Immunization Records - these must be on a Tennessee Form (contact Knox County Health Department if records are from another state)


    • Recent Physical Examination


    • Proof of Residence - the Knox County Schools requires one of the following: a) Utility Bill, b) Lease agreement, c) in cases where the utilities and/or lease agreement is in the name of a person other than the parent/guardian, the person listed must provide the utility bill and/or lease agreement and also must provide a notarized letter stating that the parent/guardian and children are living at that address.  


    • Proof of Custody (if applicable)


    • Name and Address of the child's previous school

    Thank you and we look forward to meeting all of our newest Hound Dogs!
