Hillcrest Family Newsletter

December 4th, 2020

Welcome Back!

Whether you rejoined us on Tuesday, today or if you are coming back next Tuesday, it is good to be able to connect with so many students and staff again. With two weeks and two days left before Winter Break, we continue to focus on the health and well-being of our entire community AND learn important things along the way.

We have had families inquire about the option to go virtual before the Winter Break. Our building policy aligns with our district expectation around this. Families are not able to "choose" virtual from face to face at this point on a temporary or full time basis. If you chose to keep your child home at any point, be sure to call them as absent through Safe Arrival. Learning materials are provided by your child's teacher in Blackboard.

Attn 5th Grade Families: Horning Middle School Flyer

It's hard to believe we are already thinking about next school year! If you have a 5th grader at Hillcrest this year, please read through THIS flyer for information on next year's enrollment process.
