****HILLSIDE ES FAMILIES****
Thank you for all of your support already this school year. As I mentioned previously, with all the provisions and restrictions this year for our current state of affairs I felt it best to keep everyone safe, as much fun as it is to shop and provide for our families in need this holiday season this way I see best -
For safety reasons, I have decided to just do a gift card drive this year rather than shop for specific wish list items. We would like to offer each family the following - grocery gift card and store gift cards for the family (which includes all children under the age of 18) gift cards of their choosing. I sent out a form asking what type of gift cards the parents would like to have to shop for their family. You are always welcome, if you wish, to purchase an item for families as well, I am not discouraging this, but making the best effort to keep everyone healthy.
Below is the link to the HILLSIDE ES Sign-Up Genius. If you are able to help, please take a look at the requests. I have broken down the requests by family numbers.
***Please as in the past list your family number on your gift item.***
There are several ways we can handle delivery of the gift cards:
You are welcome to send them direct to me: 19060 Arroyo Ter Leesburg, VA 20176
You are welcome to either Venmo or Paypal the amount you wish, and I will happily go purchase the gift card. Please reach out to me for my Venmo or Paypal information.
You are welcome to drop items off direct to my home.
If need be, I can pick up items direct from you with no person to person direct contact.
**Please have items in no later than Wednesday, December 16th**
**Gift Cards may be any domination you wish to donate**
Please contact me if you have any questions my email - [email protected] or on my Cell Ph 714-768-5070 (text message is best)
This will be sent out to our school Neighborhood Needs Network via email, Sign-Up Genius and posted on all of the neighborhood social media platforms, so you will probably be seeing it a lot in the coming days.
Please let me know if you have any questions. And thank you again so much for your ongoing support.

Did anyone spot a Hawk this week?
The first half of approximately 6,900 additional Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) students returned to classrooms today for their first day of hybrid in-person instruction. (More than 800 Special Education students returned to school for some in-person instruction on Tuesday, Oct. 13. About 900 students enrolled in the Monroe Advanced Technical Academy [MATA] have been attending in-person instruction since Sept. 8.)
Returning today were students in grades K-2, the English Learner program and pre-Kindergarten scheduled to attend on Tuesdays and Thursdays. A second group of students in the same groups who will attend on Wednesdays and Fridays will return tomorrow, for a total of approximately 10,000 students back in school this week for some in-person instruction.
Waves replaced hugs and high fives, but there were still smiles behind the masks for students and staff alike. Health mitigation strategies, such as an online symptom tracker, random temperature checks, physical distancing and one-way traffic flow through the buildings, were in place to ensure a safe and caring learning environment.
Of course, even a pandemic can’t stop first-day traditions like family photos and new lunch boxes.
[10/27/20] Best Wishes to all our K-2 families and Hillside staff beginning Hybrid schooling today!
