On Monday, December 16, dismissal is at 1:55 pm.

School Dismissal Manager is now live at HES. By using School Dismissal Manager, you can quickly and easily update instructions when your child's dismissal needs to be changed. School Dismissal Manager is the only system used by the school to determine your child's daily dismissal procedures. Daily exceptions must be entered by 11:00 am. for full days and 9:30 am. for early release days. If your family does not have access to a computer, smartphone or email, we will continue to accept paper notes. Please do not call the school or email your child's teacher with dismissal changes. Step-by-Step Instructions and Frequently Asked Questions.
