New: Automated Attendance Calls and Emails

Beginning this school year, parents/guardians must provide the school with a written excuse explaining why their child was absent within three school days of an absence. Hillside will accept emails from parents’/guardians’ designated email address or hand-written notes. It is important to note that the district will be sending an automated phone call and email when a parent does not send an email to the attendance email (hesattendance@tesd.net) reporting a student is absent. Parents may disregard the call and email if they have already provided a valid excuse to the school’s attendance office by emailing.

Leaving a message on the attendance voicemail (610) 240-1530 is helpful to the attendance office, but an email or note in writing is imperative to not have your child marked as unexcused.
