Parents and Guardians:

We are very careful about where Hillside students are and where they are supposed to go at the end of each school day. If you need to change how your child is getting home from school, please call the front office and email the teacher to alert us. We deliver messages to students near the end of the day, so please do not hesitate to call the office. We want to make sure your student is safe and aware of the plan, each and every day!
