Hillcrest Elementary


As many of you may know, yesterday during our Halloween parade one of our students had a medical emergency.  I am happy to report this student was home last night and doing well.  


In times like this, I am reminded of what a supportive and talented community we have at Hillcrest.  I want to thank you all for the care and support you showed during this situation (immediate response of staff and parents to the emergency, helping students get back to class, bringing water and blankets, etc.).  I especially want to thank the parents and staff who supported and stayed with the student until the paramedics arrived. 


Today, we have arranged to have support provided from our  OUSD/school  Mental Health team for any students or staff who would like extra support to process yesterday's events.

Additionally, below are the direct numbers to emergency services.


Police/Fire landline: 911

Thank you again for your unwavering support.  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
