3-20-2020 Teleschool Updates

Hillside Community,

We've made it through our first week of teleschool! Thanks to all of you for getting through the first week of this current norm. Your patience, assistance, perseverance, and hard work were also necessary for our students to find success this week. Thank you! We're here for you --please let us know how we can assist if needed.


The minimal requirements for Teleschool are listed below. There are many optional/"may do" activities throughout the plans, but students should at minimum adhere to the following. Reading and math are the priority:

  • PK-2nd Grade: 30 min reading/ELA, 30 min math
  • 3rd-5th Grade: 35 min reading/ELA, 35 min math, 20 min specials (5th grade will also have social studies/science on select days)
  • Social Emotional Lessons are also included each week (optional)

Meals for Students

The district has now added additional meal sites for our students. Beginning Monday, families can pick up breakfast and lunches from Esther Jackson Elementary, Holcomb Bridge Middle, or Haynes Bridge Middle School according to location or preference. FCS- created work packets will also be available for families that prefer paper copies.
