Rise Against Hunger
Last year the Hillside Avenue School Peer Leaders and the Student Council, along with their families and some staff members packed over 14,000 meals for children through the Rise Against Hunger program. In 2019 we packed 10,000 meals. All our meals have gone to Nicaragua.
More than 40 percent of Rise Against Hunger’s meals are distributed to school feeding programs around the world. Those meals encourage school attendance and help put these children and their families on a path out of poverty.
We have decided to again join forces with Rise Against Hunger and we set the bar higher, this year we are striving to pack at least 16,000 meals. In order to participate in this amazing cause, we need the help of our school community to help us raise money. Throughout the year we will be holding different fundraisers.
Our first fundraiser is our School-wide Pajama Day! The day before Thanksgiving break, Wednesday 11/23/22, students can wear their coziest PJs and consider donating one dollar to help us raise money for Rise Against Hunger.
Middle school students can give their donations during lunch. For Elementary please send money in a bag or envelope marked PJ day for your child's teacher to collect.

ATTENDANCE AND LATENESS
Punctuality is also a habit HAS strives to expect and support. Middle school students who arrive after 8:10 a.m. are considered tardy. They must obtain a late pass from the office. After the sixth tardy, a student will receive a lunch detention each time they are tardy. Parents/Guardians will be notified if their child has been tardy five or more times. On February 1st tardy counts will reset and the process will begin again.
No Dogs on School Property
Bringing along the family dog, especially with such pleasant weather, during arrival and dismissal has become a common practice for many. However, it does pose some safety concerns for students who have a fear of dogs.
Thanks to everyone for being mindful of keeping the school grounds free of any dogs so that all students can move about freely without worry of having to come in contact or pass by a dog on the premises.
Notes from the School Nurse
Please know that when items for middle school students are dropped off the students will be called at the end of the period to pick up their belonging. This is to help limit interruptions.
If you are coming to the building for a meeting or to pick up a student please be aware that will not be allowing anyone to enter the building while the middle school students are passing between classes during period changes. We appreciate your patience.
You must have your ID to enter the building. If you are dropping off your child and you don't have your ID ring the bell and had your student enter the vestibule. Your child will then ring the second bell and the office staff will bring them in and direct them to class.
