Astro August Update #3
Dream big. Reach for the stars. Together we achieve success!
Teachers are returning this week to prepare for our next school year. This year like others will have lots of learning! Our first goal of the year is for teachers to connect with you and your student(s) so that you can get to know each other and to help start off the school year positively. This year is different so we need to work together in different ways. We usually connect with the Ice Cream Social at the beginning of the year instead we will connect individually through phone calls or Google Meets. We are here to support you and your student(s), there will be some challenges but together we can achieve success.
Preparing for School
- Make a plan for school time. Designate a place for school work.
- Gather school supplies.
- Make a list of questions you and your student have about school so you can ask your student's teacher when they call.
If you need help with school supplies or technology, contact the school office at 503-844-1300.

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.
