Comprehensive Distance Learning Tips
Everyone has been doing an amazing job with Comprehensive Distance Learning. Here are a couple of tips.
For your privacy please,
- Be aware of what or who is visible in the background while your student is online
- All of the whole class lessons are being recorded so that students who are absent can access them.
- Headphones are really helpful for blocking out extra noise.
Comprehensive Distance Learning Timeline
School meals will be delivered by our school buses. Please use MyBus Student Route Look up to find your assigned stop and delivery time. You will use your student's school id number as the login and their birthdate (in MM/DD/YY format) as the password.
Children may qualify for reduced or free meals if your household income level within a certain range. This range was recently expanded to allow more children to access meals. Please see the linked forms for more information and to apply if you qualify.

The safety and well being of our students is our number one priority and we are here to help, as well as our community partners. We know that the global pandemic has been challenging in many ways, including mental health of those in our community. Therefore we want to acknowledge Mental Health Awareness Month (also referred to as "Mental Health Month"), which has been observed in May in the United States since 1949. Many national organizations such as NAMI, Mental Health America, and other affiliates spotlight Mental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of mental health and to stop the stigma associated with mental health. The Hillsboro School District also wants to spotlight and thank our local resources and organizations that continue to be available for support during COVID-19. Please go to https://www.hsd.k12.or.us/coronavirus for more information or for immediate access please call the agencies listed. (Admin: See above Support Sticker to post with this message). Our school staff are available Monday-Thursday for any assistance or questions that you or your student may have and we appreciate your partnership during these unprecedented times.
