Welcome to Highland Rim School!

Welcome to Highland Rim School. We believe in everyone giving his best every day.  That includes students, staff and teachers. With this expectation, we have created an atmosphere where our students can excel in academics, athletics and attitude. Our school has a caring and welcoming climate where everyone is valued.

Please be aware of the following procedures:

For lunch visitors: the visitor must be on the child’s pick-up list in order to eat lunch at school with the child. Only the child will eat lunch with the visitor, no friends. We had many issues with lunchtime visitors last year, and while we welcome visitors, we have to keep the safety of our children in mind.

We do not check students out after 2:30. If you have appointments that require your child to be there immediately after school, you will need to come in and check them out before 2:30.

Our school day begins at 7:45. Students must be in their seats to avoid being tardy.

All car rider parents must enter on Old Huntsville Highway and exit on Highland Rim Road. Please have students ready to get out when you stop along the sidewalk. No students should be dropped off in front of the building.

We only dismiss students through our car rider line. Parents may not walk in the front to pick up students. We issue plastic hang tags to car riders. Each car rider will receive 2. Additional tags may be purchased in the office for $2.00 each. The child will keep this year’s car rider number for the entire time he/she is at Highland Rim. You must have a tag to pick up a child.

The earliest students may enter the building is 6:45. Students must be picked up by 3:30.

NOTIFY ME – Go to the Highland Rim Website ( and click the triangle that says “Notify Me” to sign up for our weekly e-newsletter.

Students in grades 3-8 have access to INOW, an online grading program. Parents may access grades online, and all students have a password for parents to use.

We are looking forward to a great year!
