A Message from the Principal Principal


Hillside High School had a successful virtual school opening through our new Canvas learning platform. Teachers welcomed students into their virtual classrooms where they provided training and orientation activities on how to successfully navigate through this new learning tool.  Students are attending their virtual classrooms with confidence, excitement and engagement.  In addition, our virtual Back to School night held on Wednesday, September 23rd  was a great success. 


Meals are provided at the high school on Tuesday and Thursday from 4:30 – 6:30 in the cafeteria located in the main parking lot. 


Please note the following important weeks celebrated in the month of October:


School Violence Awareness Week – Since 2003, schools and districts have been observing School Violence Awareness Week during the week beginning with the third Monday in October, which is October 19th – 23rd .
