We will start school a week later than usual this August. The first day of school is Tuesday, August 20, 2019. Monday, August 19, is a pupil-free day so only the Hillcrest staff will be present. Note that we will have a new start time this year. School will begin at 7:55 AM to allow us to take advantage of banked-time Tuesdays every Tuesday during the coming school year. We will be firm in expecting all families to be at school on time and reverse longstanding issues with arriving to school late. We are shooting for 100% attendance and zero tardies on the first day of school!
