Astro November Update #1
Dream big. Reach for the stars. Together we achieve success!
November 10th marks the end of the first quarter of this school year. Wow! We are looking forward to connecting with you during conferences. Your child's teacher will be sending you information about times. This year all conferences will be online. If you are planning on traveling during the week of conferences, please make sure you have the ability to access the internet during your scheduled conference time.
As a reminder school starts at 7:45 am. This means your child needs to be in their classroom ready to learn at 7:45 am. If you are dropping off your child(ren) and they are going to eat breakfast at school, please drop them off between 7:15 and 7:25 am. If they are not going to eat breakfast, please drop them off between 7:20 and 7:35 am. This will allow enough time to get to class on time without rushing. Thank you for your patience as we improve the drop-off procedure. It is flowing much smoother. If you anticipate needing a little extra time to help your student exit the car, wait to pull as far forward as possible. This will help the traffic flow.

Verify Your Student and Contact Information
The Hillsboro School District asks that all parents review and update student and contact information yearly by logging into your ParentVUE account, opening the Online Registration module and then selecting the 2021-2022 Verification option. Having accurate parent/guardian contact information is critical for communicating school and district news, as well as attendance and emergency notifications.
Detailed instructions and a video for how to update information can be found on the HSD website (https://www.hsd.k12.or.us/Page/6187.) If you don’t have a ParentVUE account or have difficulty completing the process for any reason, please request assistance from the office staff at your student’s school.
