Principals Message: End of Quarter
Parents/Guardians and Students,
This is just a reminder that the end of first quarter will be October 22nd, 2021. Please make sure your students are talking to their teachers, and more importantly, attending APP class. We have not had great APP attendance first quarter. We expect the have higher APP attendance second quarter. Parents/Guardians please help us with this by encouraging your students to attend APP and work with their teachers.
Dance Information: Husky Howl
On October 23rd , 2021 Hillcrest High School will have the Husky Howl Dance (Halloween Dance). As part of our school wide efforts to keep students safe, we are now requiring students who want to bring a date or friend from another school, to fill out the Guest Request Form. We will also provide copies of this form in the main office for students to pick-up. Students will be asked to provide student ID to get entrance into the dance. If students do not provide that they will not be allowed in the dance. Students coming from other schools must bring their ID along with the Guest Request Form. If they cannot produce those, they will not be allowed in the dance.
Hillcrest students must accompany a Guest. This means the ratio must be 1 Hillcrest student to every 1 Guest Student. No exceptions allowed.
