Home of the Huskies!


Homestead Hills Flow Chart – Daily Operations 

This document has been designed to provide staff and parents with answers to how students will operate throughout the school day at Homestead Hills Elementary while we operate out of phase 4 of the Return to School Roadmap issued by the state.  Please understand that this is a living document and subject to change as we navigate through the school year.  We are all committed to being solution focused and providing the optimal learning environment for our students.

Welcome to the Homestead Hills Elementary home page. We are pleased to have you visit our site. We are a small school with a student population of approximately 250. We take great pride in being a family friendly school where each student is known by name. We are located near the MS/HS Campus; 849 Husky Trail, Benzonia.

We have an active Parent Teacher Connection that supports our school by hosting multiple events during the school year and raising funds to cover the costs of field trips (so that they are free to our students).

We strive to meet each students individual needs.

Homestead Hills is the home of the HUSKIES who are respectful, responsible, safe and ready to learn!
