Dual Language Immersion Program

Ask us about the dual language immersion program starting at Viewmont Elementary School for the 2019-2020 school year.  This program is for rising kindergarten students. Dual language classes are bilingual classes where native-English speakers and native-Spanish speakers learn together with the goal of being proficient in both languages.  If you missed our earlier parent information sessions about this program and are interested in learning more, please call our office to request more information or speak with someone about this exciting new program and opportunity for rising kindergarten students.  


 Please register new students
at Viewmont as soon as possible.
Registration and enrollment 
information can be found HERE



Hickory Shared Access allows all HPS students to use his/her unique account to access books and electronic resources from the Hickory Public Library. LEARN MORE HERE


Do we have your current phone numbers and reliable way to contact you in case of an emergency or child's needs?
Please make sure we hav
e a working phone number for someone we can call if your child were to get sick or hurt at school.
