Good afternoon Wildcats! This is Mr. Price, principal of Hillcrest Middle. For everyone new to our school, welcome to Hillcrest. We are very excited to get to know everybody. Every Sunday afternoon throughout the year, I will send a message to families. You will receive this message in three formats 1) a voicemail on the primary number listed in Power School/Backpack, 2) an email with a hyperlink to the message (at the request of parents, I also paste the full message in the email) and 3) a link will be posted to the HMS home page https://www.greenville.k12.sc.us/hms/index.asp ). If you ever need further information, please feel free to reply to the email and I will respond as soon as possible. You can also call our main line at 355-6100.
