  • #wearitwednesay -- On Oct. 19th Hillside Grade School will be joining many schools across the nation to recognize the importance of encouraging a safe and inclusive learning environment for all. We hope you and your children will join us in an act of unity by wearing the color orange on Oct. 19th, 2016. Although this act is simple, we hope that it sends the clear message that we take the matter seriously and want every child to feel comfortable and safe at school.
