From the Principal 



Welcome to Hinchcliffe Elementary School!  I am currently in my 11th year as a School Administrator, and this is my 5th year at Hinchcliffe School in O'Fallon.  I am a long-time resident of O'Fallon, and my husband and I have two young boys that attend the O'Fallon Dist. 90 Schools.

As a building administrator, I encourage you to take an active role in your child's learning at school.  There are many ways that you can be involved and show your support- either at school or at home.  If you are looking for ways to be involved, please let us know.  We are always glad to include parents in activities that will help children to maximize their learning potential. 


Hinchcliffe School is currently comprised of twenty K-5 classrooms, and in January 2009, we had a building enrollment of 438 students.  In addition to the regular education classrooms, Hinchcliffe students, like other students in District 90, also attend music, art, PE and library classes  once a week.  Like other schools within District 90, Hinchcliffe School provides a variety of services to students who qualify, including speech / language, physical therapy, occupational therapy, reading improvement, and a range of services for the disabled.  Other services available to all students at Hinchcliffe include nursing services and social work services. 

The Hinchcliffe teachers are encouraged to keep an open dialogue with parents at all times.  Communication is critical to the success of every child, and if you have a question regarding your child and school, please call or e-mail the classroom teacher or myself.  We will work with you to answer your questions and provide clarification to any question or concern you may have. If you would rather meet with us personally, please contact the school office to make an appointment.  We will be glad to arrange a time to meet with you that is convenient for everyone. Strong community support and dedicated teachers enable us to provide your child with an educational experience that is invaluable. 

I look forward to meeting you and working with you and your child(ren).  Again, Welcome to Hinchcliffe!
