School Safety Drills


While our fire drills have gone unchanged, to maintain our safe school environment, our severe weather drills and lockdown drills involved discussion with students during the drill, rather than having them gather in close quarters together. We have conducted each of these drills so far this year.


Have a safe and happy Halloween!


Mr. Eisele


To reduce the number of parent communications we send, the Principal's Update will now be included in the Hilton Weekly Newsletter.

Food Pantry

Our Free Food Pantry is stocked with lots of items for anyone in our community. Feel free to stop by any time. The food pantry is located under the awning to the main entrance of the school.

Policy Changes - Please Read

For the 20/21 school year, Hilton has some new policy changes due to COVID:


EXTRA CHANGE OF CLOTHING

With the current COVID restrictions, we are not able to offer a change of clothes if your child has an accident, or stumbles in a mud puddle, or gets a nose bleed, or has a mishap in the cafeteria...therefore, it would be helpful if you kept a change of clothing in your student's backpack. If your student does not have spare clothes, we will be calling home to have you bring a change of clothing. Thanks for your assistance with this.


OUTSIDE LUNCHES FOR STUDENTS

Due to COVID, we are unable to accept fast food lunches/restaurant lunches to be dropped off for students.

Items To Be Dropped Off

Hilton Families -


If you have any item(s) that needs to be dropped off, we now have a new system/location at Hilton. See picture above.


We are utilizing this new system to minimize the number of people entering the office to keep the office staff healthy and available to support the Hilton staff and students.


This bookcase is located inside the vestibule, just outside the office door. You will press the button for entry and let us know you have an item to drop off and we will ask you to leave those items on the bookcase in the vestibule.


If you can label the item with the student and teacher name prior to arrival, we'd appreciate it!

If not, we have left scrap paper, scotch tape and flowered pens for your use. Please fill out the information and attach the paper directly on the item with the tape.


We will be checking the bookcase and collecting the items for delivery throughout the day.

Thank you!
