HCS Cafe

The Hillcrest Cafe offers a variety of lunch and snack items providing a convenient and affordable alternative to bringing lunch from home. The café is open for morning snacks at 8:00 AM through lunch and until 3:45 for after-school snacks.

Snacks and lunch items may be purchased during morning breaks and lunch times. Hot lunches, including drinks, may be ordered during homeroom each day.

A menu is sent home at the beginning of the year showing the specific hot lunch items offered each day, along with the a-la-carte selections such as sandwiches, chips, snacks, and drinks. We also offer selections from Subway and Dominos daily.

Accounts for Café purchases for each student may be established directly with the Café for $60. Parents will be notified in writing when the balance is low to arrange replenishment. There will be no purchases without cash or a current account.

Before/After School Childcare

Hillcrest provides childcare before and after school from 7:00 AM – 5:00 PM for preschool and from 7:00 AM – 6:00 PM for students in kindergarten through 8th grade. To meet the varied needs of our families, there are two program options explained below.

Discounted Extended Childcare Fee Options

If a family requires extended childcare on a regular basis, the monthly fee is the best value. One can sign up for mornings, evenings, or both for the amount of days needed each week. In order to receive the discounted rate, families commit to a 10-month plan. All monthly childcare fees are due on the first of the month and paid directly to HCS. The enrollment forms list the various pricing options.




Drop-In students are welcome. Please fill out a Day Care Enrollment Form if you anticipate ever needing drop-in daycare. The hourly rate is $6.75 per student. Please notify staff ahead of time, so your child and staff will know where they need to be at school. All drop in day care fees are billed at the end of each month and paid directly to HCS

There is NO DAY CARE available when there is NO SCHOOL

Please consult the SCHOOL CALENDAR for information on specific dates.
