Back to School Information

  • We hope you are enjoying the final days of your summer and that you, like us, are eagerly anticipating the start of another amazing school year! This email is our annual summer mailer (digital version), and we send it to all Hillview families. Those of you who have requested a hard copy version, or who have not opted in to the digital mailing, will receive the contents of this mailer in the coming days via the US Postal Service.


    The main purpose of this mailer is to get you ready to attend our annual E Komo Mai ("Welcome") Luau, set for Tuesday, August 21 from 4 - 6 p.m. At the Luau, your student will receive his or her class schedule (7th and 8th graders will also receive their school-issued iPads), provided you have taken care of some details beforehand. Below you will see a description of each item in the mailer. Click on these links for more information and for all necessary forms.

    Remember to PRINT YOUR RECEIPTS and bring these to the Luau!  See you there!
