Welcome to Hillcrest Central School

Welcome to Hillcrest Central School

Hillcrest Central School is nestled in the picturesque town of Teeswater, Ontario in southern Bruce County.  We are a rural community with amenities within the town of Teeswater.  Hillcrest Central School is home to the mighty Huskies!  We have a lovely student body of approximately 135 students with caring and committed staff and parent community. 


We have a number of new staff this year, and some staff who have moved to new positions/classrooms within the school, so things may look a little different this year.

A special welcome goes out to our new students and families.  I know that you will find our school and community a wonderful place to be. 

Communication: Getting the News

Our monthly newsletters are an important means of communication between home, school and the community. The Hillcrest Central School newsletter will available on the 1st of every month and a mid-month update will be available a few weeks later.  We will continue with an electronic newsletter, accessed on the Facebook Page or sent to families through SchoolMessenger. 

School office hours are 8:30 a.m. — 3:30 p.m. The answering machine is available at all times.

Principal Message:
TEE students and families,

The Hillcrest team hopes that all of you are having a wonderful summer with family and you have enjoyed these beautiful sunny days!
As we begin to get ready for a very exciting new 2021-22 school year, just a few small notes to begin and to help families to start preparing for our first day on Tuesday September 7th!
Please note, If you are new to our school community, or if you have yet to register your JK/SK child, please kindly call the school - 519-392-6811 so that we can assist you with this process as it will need to be done as soon as possible.
You may also reach out to us should you have any additional questions or require assistance (e.g., busing, updating info. re address change, phone number changes, custody changes, medical changes, or email address changes etc.). We are always here to help and are happy to do so!
Please note that at present, we do not yet have information regarding COVID-19 protocols and first day processes. We will communicate this and all information for start-up as soon as possible, and as always, using both this Hillcrest Teeswater Principal School Facebook page and School Messenger emails, which are sent directly to each of our Hillcrest Huskie families.

September 30, 2021 was Canada’s first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation with many activities held across Bluewater District School Board. Further acts of reconciliation took place during Secret Path Week in October, and students across the district also learned about treaties during National Treaties Recognition Week in November. While it is important that we recognize these important days and weeks of the year, we would like to know from you what else can be done throughout the year to honour truth and reconciliation.
