Dear Parents and Guardians:
The faculty and staff at Hillside Intermediate School extend our best wishes to you and your family as we prepare for the 2018-2019 school year. We are busy preparing a welcoming, well-organized school which focuses on the academic success and social well-being of your child. Let me begin with important “start-up” information:
- The first day of school is Monday, August 27, 2018. This is a full day for students and hot lunch will be served. Students may bring a light snack (no glass bottles) for the first day to help with the transition back to school. Hillside does have a breakfast program. However, breakfast will not be served on the first day. We will begin serving breakfast on Tuesday, August 28, 2018.
- Our school day begins at 8:25 a.m. and ends at 2:55 p.m. Students may arrive no earlier than 8:10 a.m. When students arrive on the first day they should gather at the lower level patio. At 8:25, students will be directed inside by the teachers on duty to a whole-school assembly in the gym. At the end of the assembly homeroom teachers will bring student to their rooms and complete the full orientation program.
- Your child’s homeroom teacher is:
- It is my unwavering belief that all children can learn given the appropriate academic and social learning environment. My goal, as principal of Hillside Intermediate School, is to provide the best learning experience for each student. I also believe that in order to meet this goal a positive and active parent-school partnership is essential. Please feel free to call (203-720-5260) or email me email@example.com anytime with questions or concerns.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer and look forward to seeing you at the start of the new school year!
