In cooperation and collaboration with the City of Germantown and Germantown Municipal School District administration, here are reminders for the traffic pattern in the MORNING at Houston High School. This is the same procedure as last year.

Click here for a link to the map.

Afternoon Dismissal Procedures

As stated above, the methods for dismissal are identical to previous years. For those that are NEW to Houston High School and are planning to pick your child up from the school, please see the following description:

*Please note that this is NOT a change from last year.
All roads to the school serve as both entrances and exits. Students/faculty/parents will be able to exit or enter from either side.
AREA “A” is one carline pickup option.
AREA “C” is another carline pickup option.
AREA “B” serves as the bus lane from 2pm-3pm and no cars are allowed to use this loop.
Parents picking up their child are advised to choose and discuss their preferred pickup location with students in advance.
For those needing an enlarged or printable version of the parent pick up/dismissal method, please click here.

Due to the number of after school activities, and the variation of student location at the conclusion of the school day, parents and students may choose the best options for their family.  The traffic getting into the high is far less complicated.

ACT Update for the Class of 2021

As a result of the school closures this spring, the annual Junior ACT testing date, which would have served as the first of two free testing opportunities for the Class of 2021, was cancelled. Nevertheless, GMSD, in conjunction with the state of Tennessee, is committed in ensuring these rising seniors will still have two opportunities to receive free testing.

On Tuesday September 22, all Seniors at HHS will take the ACT during the school day at no cost. This is a new, earlier date requested by the state of Tennessee to aid Seniors in testing twice during the first semester. This date is open only to members of the Class of 2021, and those students will be registered by HHS at the beginning of the school year.

A second opportunity for our rising Seniors will come on the Saturday December 12, national testing date. GMSD will supply each member of the Class of 2021 a registration voucher that will cover the cost of testing. These vouchers will be made available to students this fall with additional information on its use for registration. While other HHS students are allowed to register and test on this date, only members of the Senior class will receive vouchers.

Though ACT is still holding registration for summer testing opportunities in June and July, out of an abundance of caution and in line with the guidance from the state of Tennessee, Houston High School will not open as a testing site for either of these dates. GMSD has determined that the most prudent action at this time is to keep our buildings closed for the safety of our students, staff, and their families.

We hope that you and your families are safe and healthy and find opportunities to enjoy your time together this summer!
