Principal's Message A Message from the Principal

Hillside High School had a successful school opening.  All students arrived in the required uniform – Khaki pants/skirts, black, white or maroon shirts.  Teachers welcomed students into their classrooms where they provided orientation activities (fire drills, handbook, curriculum, rules and regulations, morning and dismissal procedures, etc.) 


It was a great pleasure meeting and greeting the parents who took the time to visit their children’s classroom on Thursday, September 29th, at our Back to School Night.  A student’s school success is linked closely to parental interest and involvement.


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 17-21.  For more information visit the NJ State department website listed below.
