Principal's Message

Welcome to the Hill Crest Community School website. Our website contains a great deal of information for parents, students, staff, and visitors. We strive to keep it current with relevant information.  If the website doesn't contain what you're looking for, please let us know so we can make appropriate changes. Also, feel free to browse the website to get a feel for what our school is like. It's truly a great place to learn, teach, and play.

This is my first year as principal at Hill Crest and I must say that I have been made to feel extremely welcome in the community and within the school itself.

I cannot say enough good things about the staff at our school. From excellent teaching practices, a love of learning and exceptional modeling techniques, our staff strives to provide the best education possible for the eager learners that you send to us every day.

I love visitors at the school and I also love bragging about this school. Feel free to contact me at the school if you have any concerns or if you simply want to check out the amazing things going on at Hill Crest.

Mr. Ben Giesbrecht

Facts and Figures

FVSD Scent Aware Information

For the general population, exposure to scents is not typically problematic. However, from time-to-time, the presence of perfumes and other scented products can present indoor air quality concerns that may affect a person’s comfort. Furthermore, for a small portion of the general population, scented products may present a risk of health hazard.

For individuals with pre-existing conditions such as chemical sensitivities or sensitizations, asthma or allergies, exposure to some odours can cause a range of ill health effects. Some reported symptoms include: headaches, dizziness, lightheadedness, nausea, fatigue, weakness, insomnia, confusion, loss of appetite, depression, anxiety, upper respiratory symptoms, shortness of breath, difficulty with concentration, and/or skin irritation.

Scented products more commonly include the following:

● Personal hygiene products, such as shampoo, conditioner, hairsprays, deodorants, colognes, aftershaves, fragrances, perfumes, lotions, soaps, cosmetics and creams;

● Industrial and household chemicals and cleaners;

● Air fresheners, such as deodorizers, potpourri, oils and candles; and

● Various household products.

Raising the scent-awareness of our staff, students and public

Employees, students, and visitors will be informed of this guideline through signs posted in Fort Vermilion School Division #52 schools and buildings, website information, newsletters, and healthy workplace promotional materials.

Minimizing the use of, and exposure to, scented products

● Persons entering our schools and buildings will be encouraged to use scent-free products.

● Wherever possible in our schools and buildings, scent-free products should be used. The purchase and use of “unscented” products will be preferred over scented substitutes where possible. This will involve a review of Material Safety Data Sheets for commercial products currently used and those intended for use, as well as examination of product samples to ensure that the ingredients are unscented.

● Health and Safety 2016 Revision

● Wherever possible, maintenance, renovation, etc. with which an “atypical” odour is associated should be scheduled to occur at times of reduced occupancy.
