 Re: Emergency Notifications of School Closings, delayed openings, early dismissal


Dear Parents and Members of the Hillside Educational Community:

The district is working diligently to ensure that accurate emergency notification regarding changes in the normal school day due to inclement weather, etc., is being sent in a timely manner.   Please note that there are NO ACTIVE SIRENS being used by the District.  Any sirens you may hear at any time during the day are being sent from neighboring towns or neighboring school districts.

Hillside Public Schools uses the following methods of notification ONLY:

  • Telephone calls are sent to ALL telephone numbers that have been provided by parents, staff and administration   (You should ensure that your telephone contact information is current)
  • Media display of school closings, delayed openings, early dismissal can be found on Channel 7, Channel 4, and News 12NJ
  • The information will also be posted on the District’s website (www.hillsidek12.org)

Please feel free to contact the office of the Superintendent of Schools if there are any issues of concern.

We would like to take this time to congratulate Mrs. Carriann DeSanto, one of our distinguished Science teachers at Hillside High School for being one of the top ten recipients of the Shell Urban Educators Award. Mrs. DeSanto was picked out of thousands of applicants from all around the country to represent our district at the National Science Teachers Association Conference in Chicago IL this year.

Mrs. DeSanto will receive an $1800.00 award at the NSTA Teachers Award Gala on Friday March 13, 2015. She will be participating in different seminars during her stay related to teaching science in an urban setting.

We are so proud of her accomplishments and that she is one of our long standing educators who has been teaching the students of hillside for the past 14 years.

Way to go Mrs. DeSanto!
