"A Flight Above the Rest"
College and Scholarship Information HERE
Construction on our building addition started in early December and will continue throughout the spring semester.
Please be assured that there will be no disruption to student learning. However, construction has had an impact on traffic and parking. Because of this, traffic during peak hours will be more congested than usual.
Student and staff safety is a top priority at Hinkley and I would like to remind students, staff and parents to continue to exercise caution when in our parking lot.
As a reminder, we ask every driver to make only a right-hand turn when exiting Hinkley’s parking lot between the hours of 7:00 - 8:00 am and 3:00 - 4:00 pm.
We look forward to the new improvements at our building and appreciate your patience during our bond-funded construction project!
Many of our students will participate in state testing this spring. Participation is important because results help students, parents and teachers understand whether students have mastered the content they need to know by the end of the school year to be on track for college and career success. Please help your students prepare to do their very best on these upcoming assessments.
To view the testing letter and related information, please visit aurorak12.org/testing.
Prepare a sus hijos para las pruebas estatales
Muchos de nuestros estudiantes participarán en las pruebas estatales durante esta primavera. La participación es importante porque los resultados ayudan a los estudiantes, padres de familia y maestros, a comprender si los estudiantes han dominado los contenidos que deben saber para el final del año escolar, para así estar preparados para el camino a la universidad y una carrera. Por favor ayuden a sus hijos a prepararse y que tengan su mejor desempeño en las pruebas que vienen.
