The purpose of APP is to provide an opportunity during the school day for students to receive added support from their current teachers. APP is an attendance-based class. Students MUST attend APP to receive credit/grade. The grade earned in APP does affect your GPA.
Please be aware that teachers may have different rules for accepting APP passes. Students may not be wandering the hallways without an APP pass. Please note students are not allowed to go to another APP class if they have a substitute teacher.
Thank you for your help in reminding students to attend APP.
Students and parents.
Beginning Monday, February 6th Please be aware that we will be locking all the exterior doors at Hillcrest except the doors at the main entrance (west side) during the school day.
Doors will open five minutes prior to a class change and lock again after the tardy bell. The doors will also open for both lunches.
We ask that all enter the school through the main doors on the west side of the building.
During school hours, All visitors are required to check in at the main office and receive a visitor badge to be able to walk through the building.
Thank you for your cooperation.
All teachers have been asked to send students that are late to class to the attendance office to check-in. Students sent down to the office will receive a check-in slip and turn it in to their teacher. We officially began on Monday, January 30th.
Our hope is that by sending students to check-in we will keep our hallways safe and clear. We will also be able to identify and provide additional support to our chronically late, truant, and absent students. Let your administrator know if you have any questions or concerns.
February is Career and Technical Education Month
Taking Career and Technical Education classes in high school is an important key to the future success of your student.
