Welcome Information for New Parents

Welcome to Hillcrest


Council Rock School District continues to move forward in its effort on going green.  As a result, less and less paperwork will be coming home; while more and more information will be accessible on-line. Most information can now be found on teacher websites and the school webpage. Please know that a majority of school communication, throughout the year,  will take place through electronic methods such as the e-Friday folder, listserv,  global connect (school-wide phone call) and by accessing the building calendar on our school website.  Visit the Hillcrest webpage to find out how to subscribe to the Hillcrest listserv. (Located under E-Friday Folder)  Be sure not to confuse this listserv with the district listserv.  You must sign up for both if you wish to receive Hillcrest and district information.  Make sure that we always have your up-to-date contact information and you will always be kept abreast of the latest Hillcrest Happenings

Technology Tip…Make it a habit to check the e-Friday Folder once a week.  Pick a day and stick to it!
