The Hillside Fall Coffees Committee is looking for parents to host grade-level specific Fall Coffees events! We need at least one parent per grade! If you would be willing to host one of these welcome-back events at your home, please contact Courtney Mollica at (310) 809-5839 before Sept 7th.
The first meeting of the Hillside PTO for this school year will take place Wednesday, September 5th, from 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. at the school. Anyone is welcome at the PTO meetings. It’s a great way to learn about what’s going on at school and stay abreast of what’s happening in your children’s lives. You don’t have to be on the PTO board to attend…new faces are always welcome.
Come out to make new friends or reconnect with old ones at the annual Hillside PTO Welcome Back Water Ice Social. This year’s event will take place at Hillside on Friday, September 14th, from 5 to 7 p.m. Don’t miss out!
New Pennsylvania Immunization Requirements Go Into Effect August 1, 2017
Beginning August 1, 2017, parents will have a significantly shorter time frame to provide proof of vaccination, due to changes in school immunization regulations by the Pennsylvania Department of Health. Previously, families may have had up to 8 months to provide proof of immunization. The new regulations require families to provide proof of immunization on or before the first day of school or risk their child’s exclusion. The new regulations are intended to ensure that children attending school are adequately protected against potential outbreaks of preventable diseases.
Beginning in October 2016, the PTO Communications Committee shifted delivery of the Hillside Highlights newsletter to Sunday afternoons. The decision to change delivery from Wednesday to Sunday was made in hopes that the new schedule will better enable parents to plan for the upcoming week.
To accommodate this change, the deadline for submissions for items to be included in the upcoming week’s Highlights likewise shifts to Tuesdays at 5 p.m. To submit an item for inclusion in the newsletter, please complete this form.
