A Letter from Principal Drummond

Dear Hill Community,
We are happy that this last week is behind us. Now the recovery begins for many of our families in the Hill community. Please know that our school and wonderful PTA is here to help put you in touch with resources you may need during this ongoing difficult time if you reach out. Austin ISD has published this continuously updated list of resources that you can utilize as well.

For this upcoming week, Dr. Elizalde has stated we will not hold school, remotely or in-person, on Monday, Feb. 22nd and Tuesday, Feb. 23rd. We are tentatively planning to provide remote instruction on Wednesday, Feb. 24th and Thursday, Feb. 25th, and to conclude the week with an asynchronous instruction day on Friday, Feb. 26th. We will be communicating more about Wednesday as we begin our week to let you know what that may look like. Our physical campus seems to have held up well through the freeze, but we have ongoing assessments taking place. Thank you for understanding we have many staff in tough situations right now which could affect the next week as well.

This Hill community is strong. As we have done all year, we will continue to pull together to support our students. Please know that our focus will be on the well-being of all of our Dillos once classes do resume with a lot of social and emotional care. Don’t be afraid to email me directly at jack.drummond@austinisd.org if you need anything. We wish you all a better week ahead.

Principal Drummond
