Statement: It is the mission of Haynesfield School
to provide the best education for every student enabling them to
lead fulfilling and productive lives in a diverse society. We
strive to know and meet the needs of individual students and work
cooperatively with caregivers and community leaders to make
Haynesfield a great place for children.
& Class Schedules: Haynesfield serves
approximately 400 students in grades PK-6. There are typically 3
classes per grade level in grades K-6. Students participate in one
special area class per day (Art, Library, Music, PE, Computers) and
receive Guidance Class once every four weeks.
Enrichment & Intervention Courses (30 minutes
Enrichment "elective courses" offer each student opportunities to
explore new areas of interest or to study a particular area in
depth. Electives may also provide avenues to tailor a child's
specific needs. In the elective portion of the curriculum, courses
are offered in the following areas: language arts, social studies,
math, science, computer studies, health, physical education,
foreign language, visual arts, performing arts, and media.
INTERVENTION: When a child is not meeting grade level
expectations, additional time for direct instruction is needed.
This process is called Response to Instruction and Intervention
(RTI) and is required by the Tennessee Department of Education.
Students who fall below grade level proficiency in reading and/or
math are required to receive additional time in direct instruction
in those courses. If your child received Corrective Reading or
another RTI class last year, he/she will begin in intervention this
year. In addition, we will use STAR screening to determine any
other student who may qualify for additional instructional time.
Once the STAR screening is complete, intervention letters will be
sent home with more detailed information. Students in intervention
are arranged in small groups in order to provide intensive
instruction to progress your child to meet grade level
expectations. Students who raise their performance level will
transition into elective courses, therefore, all students should
complete elective course selections.

All students are members of one of the following
HOUSES: Earth, Water, Wind or Fire. Students spin at the end of
their kindergarten year to become a member of one of Haynesfield' s
Houses. Until then, preschools and kindergarteners are assigned to
a House as a class.
Haynesfield students are motivated to be better citizens and
achieve academically in order to be the House leader! Students earn
points for academics and behavior on a daily basis and during
themed pep rallies. The House with the most points each day will
fly their flag on the flagpole at the front of the school. The goal
is to be crowned House Champions at the end of the 9 weeks to
attend the victory celebration.

A surveillance camera monitors all entrances of
the building, hallways and common areas. All entrance doors are
locked during the school day so that visitors must enter through
the front door, report to the office, sign in, and obtain a
visitor's pass prior to entering the classroom area of the
Haynesfield School's current facilities, completed
in November 1966, include 20 classrooms, an art room, a music/band
room, a school counselor's room, a cafeteria, a gymnasium with a
stage area, a library/media center, a teacher's lounge, an office
with a clinic area, and several storage areas throughout the
building. In 2011 Haynesfield was updated with new energy
effiecient windows, heating and cooling units, lighting, dropped
ceilings in several classrooms and water saving devices for
utilities. Improvements continued in 2012 with a new
paved parking lot and interior doors.
Haynesfield School is located on 201 Bluff City Highway on 5.9
acres of land. Parking facilities are available curbside in front
of the building and in the parking lot at the rear of the building.
Students enjoy an outdoor basketball court and two playground areas
with playing fields large enough for football or soccer practice
and kickball games. The high school baseball field is located
behind the back parking lot. The Haynesfield community pool and
fire station are located immediately west of the school
Haynesfield Elementary School is one of five
elementary schools in the Bristol Tennessee City School System.
Prior to 1926, it was known as Haynes Chapel School, a one-room
school housed in a small country chapel built on land belonging to
Judge H. Haynes. In March 1926, a group of parents formed the
Haynes Chapel PTA and petitioned the Sullivan County Board of
Education to build a new school to meet the needs of the growing
community. The Board agreed to build the school if the PTA provided
Judge Haynes sold and traded some real estate, thus procuring the
tract of land upon which the present school is located.
Construction of the original building was completed in April 1927.
The original building consisted of four classrooms and a basement
with two indoor toilet facilities. Judge Haynes's generosity and
concern for the community is remembered through the school named
after him, Haynesfield Elementary School.
In the summer of 1927, the city annexed the neighborhood
surrounding the school, and Haynesfield Elementary School became
part of the Bristol Tennessee City School System. According to old
office records, the enrollment circa 1929 was 120 students in four
classrooms, grades 1 - 4.
Additions were made to the building in 1939, 1949, and 1957-58. In
1965, the city voted to raze both the original building and the
1939 addition to make room for new construction that incorporated
the 1949 and the 1957-58 addition.
