We are looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow at our Ice Cream Social! You'll have an opportunity to see what your child has been doing in their classroom (5:00-5:30pm) and enjoy ice cream (5:30-6:30)! Come meet and mingle with our amazing families and enjoy our first family event of the year!
Just a reminder Hillsdale Prep does not have school tomorrow Friday September 2 and Monday September 5.
Tomorrow is casual Friday. On casual Friday's students can wear regular clothes and do not have to wear uniforms. Also, instead of ordering pizza tomorrow we will be serving the subs students did not get to eat today. We will not be able to order additional subs so if your child did not order today they should plan to pack a lunch.
HPS Parents- Thank you all for your flexibility and quick response today. Our staff did an amazing job communicating and following emergency protocols to allow for a smooth evacuation and dismissal. The gas line has been repaired and all buildings have been cleared by Michigan Gas to be occupied. Hillsdale Preparatory School will operate on a normal schedule on Friday, August 26th.
ISD students at Hillsdale Prep- you will be notified by ISD staff about bussing and pick up arrangements.
EMERGENCY- students and staff have been directed to evacuate all Hillsdale Preparatory School buildings due to a gas line being cut. ALL students are accounted for and safely waiting outside by the medical care facility. Hillsdale Fire department is on site and maintaining safety. Due to the amount of time that it will take for utilities to arrive, assess and repair we are asking that parents come and pick up students as soon as possible. Communication with school staff can occur via email or by calling the office phone, which has been directed to a staff cell phone.
Students will be able to order Subway and pizza for lunch this week. On Thursday the students can choose between a 6 inch turkey or ham sub. On Friday they can choose between cheese and pepperoni pizza. Subs are $3.00 and a piece of pizza is $1.50. There is chocolate or white milk for sale everyday for $0.50. Students should bring money to their classroom and place the order with their teacher. Parents are welcome to send in cash or a check made out to Hillsdale Prep to start a lunch account. Students who do not want to order still need to bring a packed lunch.
Hillsdale Prep wants to thank you for your patience today during dismissal. We understand that the process took longer than in the past and we appreciate all parents following the flow of traffic and remaining in your cars. As a reminder, dismissal begins at 3:15pm. We do ask that cars do NOT begin lining up in the parking lot until 3:10. This will help keep traffic out of the road. Also, dismissal runs from 3:15 until 3:45, so If you are able to come later during that timeframe, it will help with the flow of traffic and allow the process to move faster. Thank you again for your flexibility during construction!
Due to the construction, Hillsdale Prep’s phones may be out at times throughout the day. If you are attempting to contact the office and are not successful, please contact us via email Melody.Henthorne@hillsdaleprep.org
The front driveway at Hillsdale Preparatory School will be closed through the end of August due to construction. All traffic will be directed to the back parking lot during the closure and all students, staff and guests will enter the building through the rear entrance. Specific plans for student drop off and pick up will be discussed at Open House on Monday 8/22 at 6pm.
Hillsdale Preparatory School's after school clubs run off of the time donated by volunteers. The hope is to offer clubs again this year 5 days a week. We are looking for parents and community members who are willing to volunteer their time to oversee after school clubs. If you are interested, or know someone who is, please email Annie.Fowler@hillsdaleprep.org with your availability.
Hillsdale Prep Parents, We are working hard to prepare for the 22-23 school year. We have mailed a back to school packet to all families that includes updates from Mrs. Fowler, a letter from the teacher, classroom supply lists and a copy of the dress code. These items are also available on our website Hillsdaleprep.org along with the school calendar and student handbook. The Open House is Monday, August 22 at 6:00pm and the first day of school is Tuesday, August 23. We are looking forward to another great school year at HPS. Please contact the office with any questions.
Just a reminder tomorrow is the last day of school. We will have an awards ceremony that beings at 11:00 in the gym. ISD buses will be in the parking lot until 10:45. Please do not arrive prior to that. If you do not attend the awards ceremony dismissal will be at 12:00. Families that wish to stay can join us back in the gym for hot dogs and chips. We are looking forward to celebrating a great school year!
