HILLCREST ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

A Quality Education for A Quality Life

Welcome

This website has been created as a help to students and parents in preparing for the new school year.  It is designed to inform and keep you up to date with the school’s events.

Each staff member at Hillcrest is dedicated to providing the best learning environment possible for each child.  However, the learning experience of each student MUST be a cooperative effort between home and school.  It is the parent and child’s responsibility to get the most out of the education provided for the child.  It is the school’s responsibility to provide a quality education for each child.

We at Hillcrest look forward to a relationship of understanding and cooperation between school and home.  We want parents to feel free to contact the school at any time concerning the educational needs of their child.

I would like to welcome you to Hillcrest!!

IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS:

PLEASE BE SURE YOUR STUDENT IS UP-TO-DATE ON ALL REQUIRED IMMUNIZATIONS!

This is important for all students, however, it is critical for new students to the parish, and students going into Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st, and 6th grades. Failure to comply with the immunization requirements as set by LA State Law will result in your child’s exclusion from school until such requirements are met. DO NOT WAIT! Past years have demonstrated that parents/ guardians who wait until just before the new school year starts have had difficulty getting appointments when needed. In addition, clinics and doctors' offices often run out of vaccine.

 

TAKING MEDICATIONS AT SCHOOL:

Will your student require medications while at school?  In general, all medications given at school are limited to those which cannot be given before or after school and must have a doctor’s order.  Please click on the "capsule" to learn more about the requirements set down by the Louisiana State Law (R.S. 17:436, Act 87) and the Lincoln Parish School Board concerning medication administration in public schools. 

The school office will be closed on Fridays beginning Friday, June 6th.

2014-2015 SAMPLE TEST QUESTIONS:  In order to ensure Louisiana students are prepared for college and Louisiana's economy, our state is moving to higher standards and new assessments.  The Louisiana Department of Education will highlight one sample question each day to help Louisiana educators and families preview Louisiana's new 2014-15 assessments.  These new assessments were developed with significant input from Louisiana educators who have served as key partners in identifying content for the test, developing the specific items, and guiding the technology specifications.  Click on the following link to access the sample "Question of the Day!"
