A Letter from Principal Drummond

Happy New Year, Hill community! We are excited to welcome all of our students back to learning as we begin the spring semester.

Dr. Elizalde announced this week that we will follow our planned calendar and schedule this week for the district. Students will return to school on Wednesday, January 6th. January 4th is a student and staff holiday. January 5th is a staff professional development day and student holiday.

Our campus will be open on Wednesday for face to face learning for students of families that have chosen that method and communicated it in December. As our superintendent stated this week, virtual learning will still be available the rest of this school year for families who choose it.

As we reopen our physical campus, we do encourage families to continue to be as cautious as possible at school and outside of school. We are confident Hill is a safe place based on our protocols and the dedication of our amazing staff. We also recognize that with Austin-Travis County being at COVID-19 Stage 5, we must all be even more diligent to keep everyone safe. Thank you for avoiding large gatherings and close contacts with people outside of your direct household that could lead to direct exposures. If you have any concerns from the winter break, we encourage families to take advantage of virtual learning out of caution. We are a strong school community. We thank you for your support of keeping our school open for learning as this pandemic continues.

We will see everyone on Wednesday. Have a great end to the winter break!
Principal Drummond
