School Visits

Parents are always welcome at Hillcrest Middle School.  We invite our parents to visit their child’s class or have lunch with their child. Guests should report to the front office immediately upon arrival and secure a visitor’s pass.

Drop-Off/Pick-Up Procedures

Drop off time for car riders is no earlier than 7:30 a.m.  Adequate supervision is not available before this time. Car riders should be dropped off and picked up in the back of the school at the student drop-off/pick-up area.  The entrance to the student drop-off/pick-up area is on Old 521 and goes around to the back of the school.  Please do not use the teacher parking lot to drop-off/pick-up students.
