Welcome new and returning students and families! As we head into the 2017-2018 school year at Hill Elementary, we are doing so with a larger school population than ever. This year’s enrollment is about 148% over school capacity. Overcrowding has led to increased auto and pedestrian traffic around the school during drop-off and pick-up—increasing the risk for traffic accidents and unsafe conditions for pedestrians.

Arrival

School begins at 7:35 with morning assembly in the cafeteria. Please be sure your child is on time to school.

The best and safest ways to get your kids to school are to use the bus, car line, or walking school bus.  All of these keep kids off the streets and reduce automobile traffic.

  • Bus: Have your children get on the morning bus, and then move on with your day. No fuss and no traffic. See below for bus information.
  • Car line: The most convenient way to drop your children. The school car line wraps around Tallwood to Cima Serena to Robbie. Drop off either on Cima Serena or at school entrance. All drop-off points and entrances monitored by school staff.
  • Walking School Bus: Drop off your children at the Hillcrest Baptist Church any time by 7:15 to take advantage of this supervised and super-fun way for your kids to get to school. ** The walking school bus doesn’t meet on days when the temperature is under 32 degrees.  

Dismissal

School is dismissed at 2:57 PM. The front doors of the school will be unlocked at that time to allow parents to come in to meet their children in the cafeteria for pick-up. When picking up students in the front circle drive, older siblings should sit in the waiting area with youngest siblings to facilitate pick-up. Safety Patrol and staff members are on duty until 3:15 PM. After that time, students will be escorted info the building for safety, and you must pick up your children in the school office.

Early Pick-up

If possible, send a note to your child’s teacher indicating the time you will be picking up your child. An explanation of the reason for leaving is essential for attendance purposes. In many cases, and early pick-up counts as a “tardy” for the District.

When you arrive at school, report directly to the office to officially sign your child out. Be sure to bring your driver’s license with you.
