Hillcrest Elementary Cafeteria  Manager, Catherine Jackson, Gets Year Off to Great Start

Now that the school year is in full swing, Catherine Jackson, Cafeteria Manager at Hillcrest Elementary, is happy to see the kids in the building enjoying the meals they serve. “I have a great staff and I love Hillcrest. It’s even better with the kids around because we get to greet them, smile, and talk with them.”

Even though students can’t see a smile through the mask, they see a wave or hear a hearty laugh. Jackson said they love encouraging the kids to let them know they are doing a good job and being strong during this time. “It’s different for the students now, with the pandemic. They want to know everything will be okay. They want encouragement and we give them that, along with a good meal.”

Jackson said they also ensure student and staff safety through enhanced cleaning, “The biggest changes are the procedures for cleaning and sanitizing. They are good for what we do here and it provides an extra layer of cleanliness and safety. It has not been difficult to incorporate these extra measures. We are all wearing our masks, and the kids are, too. We are doing our part to keep them safe and well.”
