Below you will find the Parents' Page of our district's Symbaloo (a tool to save and share internet resources). If you hover your mouse over the highlighted areas, the system will let you know what that collection is about. Among others, we have shared some PARCC, Online Safety, and keyboarding resources. Enjoy!
Hillside Public Schools Ed Tech Tools:
All resources are intended for educational purposes only. Parental supervision is always recommended whenever students are on the internet. When online, there is always potential for a child to access links that may lead to inappropriate content. Each and every site was checked before being included in this collection, but we have no control over sponsors, for example, who may have advertisements on the side of a page. If any inappropriate content is discovered directly through this resource, please let Kristy Weaver know immediately (908) 352-7664 x6709 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on your children and the internet, please see this Parent’s Guide to Internet Safety.
