Construction Updates

The work is happening quickly!

-We have three large holes behind the fencing for footings for the new awning. These cement columns will be built over the next week.

-The walls have all been knocked down inside the new office area. Next week they take up the floor and begin to frame out the new walls.

-We've started cleaning out and packing up the office area. We've encountered quite a few years of paperwork to be shredded!


Thank you for your patience during pick up and drop off. We are working with the contractors and district contractors to make sure all drop off areas are cleared during those two times of the day.

Forward Testing Next Week for 3rd- 5th Grade Face to Face Students

Testing for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade Face to Face students begins next week on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Please see the attached document for days and times your child will be testing so you can plan accordingly.

As you can see from the schedule, all virtual students will be tested here at Hillcrest on April 26th, 27th and 28th and additional information in regards to exact times and safety mitigations will be sent directly to each virtual family via email.

Move Forward - WEF Wellness Campaign

The annual WEF Walk, Run & Wellness event has been held each spring for the last 10 years. This year, in the spirit of moving on from a crazy last 12 months, we present you with a MONTH LONG wellness program that kicked off Sunday, March 28th and runs through April 24th appropriately named MOVE FORWARD. Why the change? We decided we needed to do something different, and we decided that this year was the perfect year to do it. Rather than a single day event that came with a price tag to participants, we have moved to a (mostly) virtual platform with some fun twists and some competition built in too! Visit our event landing page for complete event information. Be sure to log ANY activity that you have been doing!
