welcome to Hillcrest Middle



From the Principal’s Desk

Like many school districts across the country, Sumter School Distict has been impacted by the growing teacher shortage.  Some of our students began the year with a long term substitute. At the beginning of a school year, teachers are placed in schools based on estimated numbers of students that are enrolled.  Now that we have concrete numbers of students in each class we are able to shift some students from one class to another to fill current teacher vacancies.

Your child may be moved to another qualified teacher’s classroom in the building. The teachers have worked together to ensure a smooth transition, and your child’s new teacher and classmates are excited to welcome him or her. All new changes will take effect Monday, October 2, 2017.

Sumter School District strives to ensure every child’s instructional needs are met. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we work diligently to ensure all of our classrooms are filled with qualified teachers. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at (803) 499-3341.

Educationally yours,

Tarsha Staggers
