Welcome to Hillcrest Elementary School

As a school community, we work hard to show our Panther Pride.  Both adults and students show their Panther R.O.A.R.S. by Respecting Others, Acting Responsibly and being Safe.  We believe that our school should be a friendly and fun place to learn. We look forward to sharing our Hillcrest activities with you.
Please feel free to look around our webpage for information about our school, such as staff profiles, a view of our classrooms, lunch menus, and so much more!  If you are looking for up coming events at Hillcrest, check out our school calendar page. Classes start at 7:58 a.m. and students are released at 3:05 p.m.  You may drop your children at 7:35 a.m. in our east parking lot.

Water main break on Pine Ave

As you may be aware, there was a water main break on Pine Avenue this morning.  City crews are currently working make repairs.   Pine Avenue will be CLOSED between Warwick and Washington for a period of time this afternoon. This will effect our dismissal for PINE AVENUE and the HIGH SCHOOL. 
HS students who drive - will exit out the back drive to the north to Begole Road (Bridge Street).  City Police will have a presence at this location to assist with traffic. 
HS Pick Up - will happen in the front HS drive as normal.  However, parents will only be able to enter from the south and exit to the north will be right turn only.  Traffic will be directed at this point as well. 
Pine Avenue Pick up - will only enter from south and exit from south.    
MS - access to MS is from the north (Cheesman or Panther Parkway) only. 
There will be NO ACCESS to Pine avenue from Warwick Drive.  
Your patience is appreciated.
