Hillside Weekly News

Welcome back to school! We hope the first two days were a great success and your child is excited for the year ahead.

Every Friday we send out the Hillside Weekly News, which includes important information about key dates and registration deadlines, volunteer opportunities and upcoming events to keep you informed throughout the year. We strongly recommend you read every issue!

Here’s what you need to know for the coming week:

• TONIGHT, Friday, Sept 7th at 6pm is The Hillside Welcome Back Picnic. Bring a picnic dinner and a blanket and join other Hillside families for a fun evening on the Hillside field.

• School is CLOSED Monday, Sept 10th for Rosh Hashanah.

• New Family Orientation is on Tuesday, September 11th at 6:30 pm. Learn everything you need to know for a successful year at Hillside.

• Arrival Procedures (Arrival ‐ Full-day 9:10am; Delayed Opening 11:10am)

• Hillside students MUST be dropped off on St. Lukes Place, the established STUDENT DROP-OFF ZONE. St. Lukes Place is located on the backside of the school. We recommend you approach the school by way of South Mountain Ave, DROP-OFF IS ON THE NORTHBOUND SIDE of the street.

• St. Lukes Place is a DROP & GO Area: parents should not get out of their vehicles. Please be reminded that there should be no drop-off on Orange Road. Bussing is encouraged if students qualify for bussing.

• YMCA Before-Care: DROP-OFF is at the cafeteria DOOR - G on St. Lukes Place, NOT via the Staff Only Parking Lot.

• Show your school spirit with a limited edition Hillside t-shirt. Hillside Spirit Wear can now be purchased online and delivered to your home in days. There will also be opportunities to buy Hillside wear at various events this fall. Visit the online store here:

• Hillside has an active PTA that relies on families to volunteer. The PTA plays an important role at Hillside and getting involved is a great way to give back to the school. The PTA is looking for volunteers for some key fall events.
