Principal's Message A Message from the Principal

As we approach the final months of school, it is a good idea for parents to take the time to review the expectations they hold for their children in both the academic and behavioral areas with them.  Include a review of our Student Handbook in this discussion.  It is helpful for children to realize that their parents and teachers share the same set of positive expectations for them.




Parents, please be advised that your child MUST be wearing the school uniform, khaki pants/skirt, white, black or burgundy collared shirt each and every day.    Although your child may leave home in the school uniform, often times students change clothes once they reach their lockers. This is a direct violation of the dress code and they will be excluded. All attire must be clean and neat.  The administration of the school reserves the right to exclude any student whose clothing is disruptive to the educational process.



Unsung heroes/heroines

Unsung hero

The Union County School Boards Association again sponsored the annual Union County Student Recognition Program on March 23rd.  This program recognizes a senior from each high school in Union County. The honorees are our schools' "unsung heroes/heroines"—students who are often overlooked by traditional student recognition guidelines but who make a unique impact on their schools, families or communities. 


Hillside High School nominated Mr. Rashaun Snell for his tireless work ethic and outstanding leadership skills. 


Academically, he excelled in both engineering and computer technology, and was hired for three years by the district to intern within the Technology Department to combat and control technological problems inflicted upon the district.  Additionally, he was selected as the senior intern within the Department. 


Rashaun also found a love for the theater, but in a different way than most, as a member of the stage crew.  Whenever the auditorium required technical support, he was brought in to bring it to life.  Thus, he was selected Stage Crew Manager this year.
