Hillsborough High School

Home of the Big Red

August 27, 2020

TERRIER FAMILIES,

After only a few days of eLearning on CANVAS, we have made great strides in connecting our staff and students. We will continue to work through challenges, but are excited about the possibilities this new learning management system provides for everyone.


As we finalize preparations for the return of students who have selected the brick & mortar option on Monday, August 31, we have provided important information below. Please review it carefully with your student and be sure he/she wears a mask while on campus. The health and safety of all of our students and staff is our top priority. Please help us by screening your child before leaving for school each day. Students and staff who are sick should not come to school.


We look forward to a school year full of new opportunities and achievements!


Go Big Red!

Ms. King, Hillsborough High Principal
