Happy Holidays Hillcrest Herons!
It is so hard to believe we are already one-third of the way through the school year and only two weeks away from winter break. When you have the daily joy of supporting Hillcrest students and staff the time just flies by!
While many of our students and their families are looking forward to the holidays, we know for some this time of year can bring a bit of stress or anxiety. If your family has any needs, please don't hesitate to reach out to me. Hillcrest is a caring community and we will do everything we can to provide direct help or direct you to resources within the greater local community.
As always thank you for supporting your child, our staff, and our school.

On February 14, 2023, Oak Harbor voters will consider approving a school bond measure for Oak Harbor Public Schools that would replace three aging school buildings, enhance safety at all school buildings, and address critical needs in the Oak Harbor community.
We will be hosting several community meetings to share information and answer questions about the bond measure. See the graphic below for dates and locations.
