Tardy Sweeps

In an effort to reduce the number of tardies between class periods and after breaks, we are conducting random tardy sweeps. After the tardy bell rings, no student will be allowed to enter the classroom until one of our security or administrators have recorded their names on the tardy sweep log. Students will be issued a lunch detention and parents will receive a ParentSquare message informing them that their student was caught in the tardy sweep. We ask that you please have a conversation with your student regarding the importance of getting to each class on time. Together, we can work to maximize their learning time in the classroom. We thank you in advance for your support!

Cell Phone Reminder

This is a reminder that student cell phones need to be off and in their backpacks during class time. No phones should be kept in pockets or sweaters. Students are allowed to use their cell phones before school, during Nutrition, during Lunch and after school. This policy has cut down classroom distractions significantly and we appreciate all of the parent support that we have received. Students have been more focused in class and ready to learn!

We would like to congratulate all of our Hollencrest students who competed in the district's very first middle school Speech and Debate tournament! The district had 13 students who qualified to compete in-person for the semi-finals and finals at Santa Ana High School this past Saturday, October 29th. Three of our own Hollencrest Huskies placed in their respective events:

Gianna Garlington (1st place in Novice Declamation)

Ashtynn Tyler (3rd place in Novice Storytelling)

Diego Aguirre (6th place in Novice Prose)

We are so proud of all of you!
