Parent Chrissy's story

My daughter broke her leg at the end of January. I emailed the principal right away to let her know. She responded quickly letting me know that they would help in anyway they could. She set up a meeting with myself, my daughter, her teachers and the physical therapist. The therapist was able to help the teachers learn how to transfer her from her wheelchair to the bathroom. Her teachers were incredible. They were so willing to help her over the next 4 months. They always gave her encouragement and a smile, and never complained. It was tough for her to be sitting while all her classmates were able to get around. Her teachers always made sure they included her and went out of their way for her. The principal and front office staff always made her feel special too. She would “help out” in the front office while waiting for me to arrive at the end of the day. Not only did she grow and heal with all of the support she was given, she flourished as a learner as well. I could not have asked to be at a better school. Thank you Hillandale!
