Hello Hillsdale Prep parents and students. We are excited to announce an end of the year Parking Lot Parade. On June 5th from 12:30-1:00, we are inviting parents to drive through the front drop off loop to get a proper summer send off from staff. Staff members will line the front of the building with signs and noisemakers as you drive through, to bid students farewell for the summer. Feel free to decorate your car, hold up signs, etc. to show staff how much you will miss them and how excited you are for summer vacation! We hope to see you all there! *Please note that we will not be set up on this day to collect materials or devices.

Attention Reading Buddies -- Mrs. Medrano is looking for students who were reading buddies to her kindergartners. Not only do they miss their classmates, but they miss you! If you were a reading buddy to one of her students, would you be willing to email her with a message, picture, or video for your Kindergarten reading buddy? Please make sure you mention who your reading buddy was in the email so she can surprise them with your message! Thanks in advance!!!

I am so happy to see students continuing to learn with online schooling. I have been sending an art lesson video once a week for classroom teachers to post in their Google classroom. If your students send me an email with their artwork, I would love to show it on our school facebook page and school website. Mrs. Dickinson

What a great first week of distance learning! We are so pleased to see the most students have been able to log on and interact with their teachers. A few housekeeping items that we want you to be aware of as we move forward with distance learning: * The school building will be closed. We will be checking the voicemail. However, the best way to get in touch with Ms. Melody is via email or by messaging the school's Facebook page. * All staff emails can be found on the school's webpage. * Each teacher has set up office hours to ensure that there are times in the day that they are immediately available. Please use these office hours to ask questions. Students should refrain from using teacher office hours to socialize. * Outside of office hours, please email your child's teacher if you have questions. You may not get an immediate response outside of office hours, but staff will respond within 24 hours. * Some staff members may have given out their cell phone numbers. Please know this is not a requirement of all teacher and we are asking that you are only contacting them during normal business hours (8-4, Mon.-Fri) if you are using this method. * Please refrain from contacting staff on their personal Facebook pages. Email is always the best way to contact a staff member outside of office hours. * Questions about usernames, passwords, Google Classroom or technical difficulties should be directed to your child's teacher. * Scheduling pick up of items or concerns about distance learning should be directed to Mrs. Fowler. * Questions about office business or school related scheduling should be directed to Ms. Melody. * We are here to help! We just ask that you be understanding that all teachers and staff members are working from home and may also have children at home to tend to or help with schoolwork. They will all make themselves as available as possible, but we want to be respectful and allow them to have some personal time as well. A work/home balance is extremely important to help our teachers to continue to do the amazing job that they are doing.

8th Grade Parents: Due to the school closure and extended stay at home order it is necessary to cancel the 8th grade trip to Washington D.C. at this time. Mrs. Kuenzer and Mrs. Fowler are exploring a variety of options to provide these students with an alternative experience. However, no plans can be made until the restrictions are lifted. Once that happens, we will schedule a time to discuss options and get parent input before the planning process begins. Please know that it is our goal to provide the 8th graders with a trip or opportunity to celebrate their hard work and achievement during their time at HPS. We appreciate your patience and understanding that it is necessary to put these plans on hold until we can schedule things without the concern of cancelling. Please contact Mrs. Fowler directly with questions via email Annie.Fowler@hillsdaleprep.org

Hillsdale Preparatory School is collecting prepackaged non-perishable food items for the staff at the Hillsdale Medical Care Facility to show our support as they rise to care for their residents in this difficult time. If you would like you donate items, you may drop them off OUTSIDE of the school building on Friday 4/17 between the hours of 10-1. * no homemade items will be accepted. Only unopened prepackaged food and drinks please. *please drop items off at HPS and NOT directly at the medical care facility, as we are making arrangements with their staff for a one time drop off so that items can be properly sanitized. We are a family and we are in this together!
