New visitor check-in system installed
Holland Hall is changing the visitor check-in system the school uses. Student and staff safety is a top priority at Holland Hall. Every visitor is screened against sexual offender registries, government watch-lists, injunctions, and more while keeping up-to-date visitor information and records. Our new system, Visitor Aware, speeds up, simplifies, and strengthens this process.The next time you visit the school, please remember your Driver's License to do a one-time setup in Visitor Aware. From then on, Visitor Aware uses facial recognition when you need to check-in or check-out of buildings or at events at Holland Hall.

There are times during a student's educational career when they will need help at home, and we want our parents to feel confident and informed about best practices to provide "just right" academic support.So they're asking for feedback.You can access the survey by clicking here.
