Message from Principal Thompson

Stallion Families,

With our second week of school in full swing, I am proud to say our stallions are showing such adaptability, student leadership, and a love for learning! Even with our ever-changing context, I am confident this year is off to a successful beginning!

This week our teachers have been able to dive deeper into instruction with our students beginning small groups in reading and math. During this time, teachers can differentiate for all students while maintaining health and safety precautions. 

We look forward to having you join us virtually for our upcoming grade level information nights! Teachers will be sending zoom links and information out to each class individually. You will have the opportunity to hear from your child's teacher(s) regarding school and grade level policies and ask any questions you may have! 

Let's make this a great week of learning, 

Stallion Strong,

Principal Thompson

Please don't block our neighbors' driveways!

Dear Families, 

As we get into our routine of carpool pick up and drop, please be mindful of our neighbors' driveways. We want to ensure a safe and friendly experience for all, so please be cognizant of our neighbors

Hillbrook becomes one-way after we take a left from Lake Circle. Lake Circle is a two-way street, so please stay in one lane while on Lake Circle. For drop off and pick-up, please stay in the right lane on Lake Circle in order to enter the red lane once on Hillbrook. 

Thank you!
