10/12/2020 Message from Principal Hart-Olivis

Good evening Hillandale families, this is Principal Hart-Olivis with this week’s Monday message.

The Panorama Social Emotional Learning survey will be used by Hillandale and Durham Public Schools to learn more about our students in order to better support their social/emotional health and learning. The information will be used by teachers, counselors, Multi-tiered Systems of Support team and school decision making teams. This survey is 38 questions and students in grades 3-5 will have the opportunity to fill it out during morning meeting with their class on Wednesday, October 14th.

Don’t forget, our Scholastic Virtual Book Fair is still up and running!  This is a great opportunity for students to have access to fun reading and to bring back funds to our school.  Access Hillandale’s Virtual Book Fair on the school website,

As we approach the end of this quarter, new academic materials and textbooks are available for students to continue learning.  You may have already seen in Seesaw that pickup begins today.  October 12-16, daily from 8 am-10 am and 3 pm-5 pm, please swing by Hillandale’s BUS LOT to collect your child's Quarter 2 curriculum materials. The distribution will take place in a drive-through fashion. Please drive through in our line wearing your mask, and our fantastic staff will deliver the items to you safely.  Please contact your child's teacher if you need to arrange another time. 

These are the materials you can expect:

KINDERGARTEN, 1ST, 2ND, AND 3RD GRADES - Eureka Math materials

4TH GRADE - HMH myBook #2 (for the end of the quarter)

5TH GRADE - HMH myBook #2 (for the end of the quarter) & STEM KIT

Families, as we come to the end of the first quarter of school, report cards will be available soon.  If you have not already done so, please connect your Powerschool Parent Portal account, as this is how you will be able to access your child’s report card when the time comes.  Report cards will be available at the end of this quarter through the Parent Portal.  You can use the technology support resources on our school website under “Quick Links” and “How to Set-up a Parent Portal Account.
