Parents and students, we all woke up this morning thinking it was just another day. At about 9:45am that changed. We received word that we had a shooter in our building. This was not true and at no time today were your students in any danger. However, at the time we did not know that was the case and, because the warning originated from the police, the police put HHS school on lockdown.
You send your students to school everyday believing they will be safe. My report to you is that our team of teachers and staff handled the situation with professionalism and amazing skill. Students also took the threat seriously and followed directions. When the lockdown was over and students began to pour out into the halls, I was touched by the care students attended to each other with. Hugs, smiles, conversations and appropriate questions were all in good order as 2400 students found common ground in an event that for a time scared them, but also brought them closer together.
Together we are collectively saddened that this is our reality but HHS is Husky Strong! Thanks, for your support and trust in us. We thank our police for their courage and quick reaction. In all of this, we also know that in emergencies no plan is without flaws. If you have feedback, we are interested in hearing it.

Hillcrest Robotics Moving On
The FTC team just won their regional qualifier which gave them a spot at state on Feb. 11, 2017 at Weber State. The team faced multiple set-backs and obstacles and was fortunate in alliances. The kids all pushed through when pretty much everything that could have gone wrong did. It was an improbable victory against some very worthy opponents.
