This school is a family tradition. My son, daughter, one grandson, and now a grandaughter will attend this year. Upset that the grandson has been transferred to another school due to moving kids around this year. He has learning issues and is settled in at Hillcrest. Would you please consider taking him back due to his learning issues? His name is Zakk Gay.
