Dear Hillside families,
The Pennsylvania Department of Education announced that all schools in the commonwealth will remain closed through at least April 6 as a result of the COVID-19 response efforts.
The following is our plan at this time:
- faculty and staff will be given one day, April 7, to prepare classrooms and arrange other business operations
- students’ first day at Hillside will be April 8
- we will utilize a snow make-up day on April 9 and school will be in session
- check with your school district regarding your child’s bussing schedule
The closure order could be extended beyond April 6. When it is determined students can return to school, we will follow a similar pattern.
I am truly inspired by the creative dedication of Hillside teachers and specialists as they are collaborating each day to discover the best ways to maintain connections with your children and with each other, all the while caring for their own families.
Thank you for all your support. Please reach out if I can answer any questions.
Stay safe and well,
