Reminders for the Last Week of School

Last day of school72

Dear Hillcrest Families,

As we head into our last week of school, I would like to share our appreciation for your support and flexibility over the past few months as we navigated these very unusual times.  I am so proud of our entire community (staff, students and parents) for how we have stepped up to the challenge and worked together to explore new ways of learning both at home and at school. As difficult as it has been over the past few months, having students back at school in June has been absolutely wonderful, and the lessons we have learnt will be invaluable as we plan to ensure learning can continue when we head back to school in the fall.

Below is some important information about our alternate schedule for the last week of school.

Whole Class Farewell Events

Please contact your child’s teacher if your child has not been attending school but would like to participate in the Whole Class Farewell Event planned for their class. As always, we completely respect the decision of families who may not want to participate in this activity. Below are some important reminders regarding our planned Whole Class Farewell Events.

  • Due to the complexity of our schedule it is very important that parents drop-off and pick-up their child within the windows provided.
  • Drop-off will be in the parking lot for all classes.
  • Pick-up will be on 20th Street by the Adventure Playground for students in Grades K-4. Students in Grade 5 will be picked up in the parking lot.
  • All students attending our Whole Class Farewell Events must complete a Heath Check in the parking lot upon arrival. Please bring a Health Check Ticket to speed up this process.
  • Students should be prepared to participate in the activities outside so please dress for the weather.
  • Students should bring a water bottle but not a lunch. Students will be eating lunch at home on this day.
