A Letter from Principal Drummond

Dear Hill Community,

It is hard to believe that spring break is already upon us! We hope your families enjoy some time outside in beautiful weather with breaks to read a great book as well.

As many of our families have travel plans for spring break, we want to remind everyone of safe practices as your students return to school. Students should not return to school if they are exhibiting 100.4 or above fever until after they have seen a physician for clearance. If traveling overseas to one of the countries heavily affected by COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the school district asks that you alert Hill School and self-quarantine for 14 days. While we always want our students at school learning if they are able, we prioritize their health and safety above all else. We will be happy to work to excuse absences with a note during this time as families may be exercising extra caution, which is appreciated.

We want all families to know that our planning to keep students healthy and safe will continue as we work with Austin ISD to monitor the evolving situation with COVID-19. The district will continue to update families as well. They suggest visiting Austin ISD and the CDC sites with the most timely information.

If you have any questions, we are always available. As always, thank you for encouraging your student(s) to frequently wash their hands to ensure we stay as healthy as possible. We wish everyone an amazing week and look forward to seeing all of our Dillos upon their return!

Jack Drummond
