Morning Traffic Flow
Thank you for keeping the carpool line moving! Although it is very tempting to try to drop a student off directly in front of the breakfast doors or directly in front of the school, it helps us so very much if you will pull all the way up in the carpool line before dropping off your student(s). This way, we can get more cars into the line and dropping off students quickly. Students are able to walk to their destination within a few moments.
Thank you for helping us to keep traffic moving in the morning!
March 1-5 is Inclusion Week in our district and at our school1

Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBiS) at Hillside
Recognizing Positive Behavior
Students who demonstrate positive behavior at school are recognized with verbal praise ("Thanks for saying okay and doing that right away"), Tiger Tickets (with which students can enter drawings for prizes in the classroom and school-wide), and Positive Office Referrals (students come down with a referral that states their positive behavior and office staff celebrates them, calls home, and posts on Twitter). Students benefit from receiving recognition for their efforts to do the right thing. The Hillside staff loves to recognize and praise positive behaviors in our students!
PBiS Skill of the Week
- Look at the person
- Use a calm voice
- Say, "Okay"
- Don't argue
Our school works on different skills weekly; students can practice this every day!
