A Letter from Principal Drummond

Dear Hill Community,
After our virtual reopening last week, we are excited to welcome back our face to face learners to campus this week. For those Dillos returning for the first time, staff are always on hand in the morning to guide our students to the correct places and ensure they have what they need. Please remember that school opens at 7:30am and dismissal is at 3:11pm. Let your teachers know if you need any other information specific to classroom learning.

We want to ensure everyone is aware of a calendar change for this week. Friday, March 5th is no longer an asynchronous day, and we will have face to face learning on campus. Virtual students will have synchronous learning for the entire week now as well. The district has decided that April 23rd will now be an asynchronous day if you want to update your calendar.

It is with mixed emotions that we announce that our registrar, Christine McBride, has accepted a position in the office at Murchison Middle School. We will miss her and thank her for her contributions to our campus. Her last day at Hill School will be March 5th.

It was so fun this last week to see some of our Dillos in the news after KXAN published their story about Ms. Shah’s class and their celebration of the inauguration of Vice President Kamala Harris. Dillo Cheer to Ms. Shah and the wonderful job our 1st graders did representing Hill School!

Calling all incoming Kindergarteners! Ms. Pustka is hosting a fun Virtual Story Time this Wednesday at 1:00 pm. Here is the Zoom information, and we hope to see you there:

On a final note, please know we are working to reschedule our next Principal Check-In with Board Trustee Ashy for some time prior to Spring Break. We will confirm that very soon.

We look forward to getting back into our normal routine on campus and thank all of you for your patience and perseverance during these very difficult last two weeks. Have a wonderful first week of March!
