    Parent and Student Hybrid and Distance Learning Handbook

    • Each year, Hillview asks its students and families to read and agree to our handbook, which explains all our expectations. This year, we are providing a condensed version of these expectations that are most important to starting the year successfully in a distance or hybrid blended learning mode. Please sit down with your student and read our 2020-21 Parent and Student Hybrid and Distance Learning Handbook; afterwards, print and sign the last page to acknowledge that both student and parent understand the expectations. 
    • 6th graders will turn in this page during iPad pickup as one of two required signature pages (the other being the iPad Handbook signature page) to receive their iPads. 7th and 8th graders will physically turn this in when they are coming in to pick up textbooks.
