TE All-Call Reminder

When serious weather conditions or other emergencies make it necessary to close or delay the opening of schools, announcements will be made on the TE All-Call Mass Communication System, the TESD website, the T/E Information Hotline—(610) 240-1970, T/E TV on Comcast Cable Channel 14 and Verizon Channel 20, as well as on local television stations. Parents are encouraged to establish emergency procedures with their children ahead of time to prepare for early school closings.

Automated phone calls, text messages, and emails will be sent to parents through the TE All-Call system, powered by SchoolMessenger.

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 ([email protected]) 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.
