Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year at Hilton Head Island Elementary School. We look forward to welcoming your child back to school on August 16th!

It is natural for your child (and maybe even you) to feel nervous about the first day/week of school, especially during these times. Rest assured that we will do everything possible to help with the transition, making you feel comfortable, nurtured and welcomed with safety being our number one focus and priority.

On
Friday, August 13th, we will have a special informal drop-in Meet and Greet for our new HHIE families, providing you and your child an opportunity to meet your child’s teacher between 1:00-3:00 p.m. We ask that parents/students whose last name begin with A-L come between 1:00-2:00 pm and those who last name begins with M-Z come between 2:00-3:00 pm to help with traffic control. Here, you will meet your child’s teacher, drop off any supplies and materials, and formalize your child’s choice of transportation. This will also be a time for you to drop off any medication your child will need at school. We are also hosting a more formal Parent Informational Night on Thursday, August 26th. This event will provide you with more specific information about the content being covered in class, the structure for the day, and basic procedures and practices. We will have many representatives from the community onsite to share with you their local offerings including afterschool options. We will start at 5:30 pm with an overview of the PYP Programme and then transition to a session with your child’s teacher at 6:00 or 6:30 pm. This will allow you to visit two teachers if you have more than one child at our school.

Sincerely,
Dr. Sarah L. Owen, Principal
