Welcome to Hickory Creek Elementary
The Polar Express is coming to HCES!
We hope you will attend one of our Polar Express performances this week. Performances are Wednesday, December 13th and Thursday, December 14th at 7:00 PM. Admission is free, but we would like for you to have a ticket to attend to ensure that we do not reach overcapacity in the cafetorium. Tickets are available for pickup at the front desk throughout the week.
We hope to see you there!
After School Spanish enrichment classes are coming to HCES in January. Please see the flyer below for details.

Please help us to provide a safe and secure facility for our students and staff, please complete a School Access Form. (Cleared access is granted for a total of 3 years. So, if you completed a form within the last couple of years, your application will still be valid. However, if you sign-in and the computer does not recognize you, please re-submit a completed form. It may take 2-6 weeks for the application process. All information must be completed on the form in order for the form to be processed).
District policy: “Any person passing beyond the front office area must show a valid driver’s license or state identification card.”
Please make sure to bring your identification with you when entering our school to go beyond the front desk or pick-up a child.
All visitors signing in are checked against a national sexual offender database.
*Please note: If you plan to attend any field trip or on school campus event this year with your child’s class, you will need to have a cleared school access record on file at least 6 weeks before the activity.
