Early Arrival at Hillside

If your student is coming to the Hillside campus very early in the morning (well before 8:15), it is important to know that we do not have adult supervision outside at that time. We do have some students who are arriving at our campus around 8:00 a.m. Please be sure your student is aware that we want to keep everyone safe at our campus; early arrival is not desirable! Thank you.

End of School Year Reminders for Families

We are just a few weeks away from the start of summer break 2023! While this time of year brings excitement and anticipation, it can also lead to feelings of anxiousness and uncertainty for students and their families. The Child Mind Institute reports that kids, particularly those students with mental health issues, benefit from structure. The school year provides this structure and routine naturally, whereas the summer months tend to be more relaxed and flexible. While the break is often enjoyable, it can also lead to frustration, panic, and the always popular, “I’m bored.” Luckily, there are some simple ways to merge structure and routine with fun and spontaneity while also keeping students’ bodies and minds healthy and prepared for the upcoming school year. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Child Mind Institute outline several ways to make this happen including setting goals, giving students new responsibilities, and creating fun opportunities for learning. The Child Mind Institute article also includes suggestions for students with disabilities and/or mental and behavioral health challenges. A "Summer Bucket List" graphic is also attached. Please visit the links below to learn more.
