Virtual Open House

September 10, 2021

Hillside families and friends,

Greetings and how are you? We are so excited the new school year has started and we are thrilled to have your kids in school. It has been awesome to see them. We are off to a great start and are looking forward to an outstanding year.

This year’s open house will now be held virtually. It will take place next Tuesday, September 14, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Your child is part of an academic team, comprised of his/her English Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies and Special Education teachers. They are with this group for five periods a day. You will meet with this team of teachers from 6:30-7:15 and access the meetings via the links below. Please make sure you know the name of your child’s team.

Your child also takes two classes referred to as unified arts classes. These include Art, Spanish, French, Band, Chorus, Orchestra, Health, Computer Science, Technology Education, Family and Consumer Science, Resource, LA Essentials and Math Essentials. You will meet with these teachers from 7:15 to 7:30, and then from 7:30-7:45, again, via the links below.

You will then have a chance to return to any class or team to ask additional questions or sign up for a future teacher meeting from 7:45-8:00. You can also join the school administrators via their link at any time during this event.

Our entire staff will be at your disposal from 6:30-8:00 p.m. We are very much looking forward to meeting you on Tuesday. Go Hawks!
