Hillside is committed to the health, safety and wellness of our students and staff. As such, Hillside has engaged Administrators, Executive Directors, and agency staff in developing our opening plan that adheres to the guidelines and mandates from the Department of Health (DOH), New York State Education Department (NYSED), and Center for Disease Control (CDC). We worked together to address safety and health concerns as well as academic learning and the social emotional well-being of students and staff.
The 2020-21 school year will look remarkably different from previous years. Nevertheless, Hillside maintains a commitment to learning in a welcoming and safe environment. As such, the re-opening plan outlines three learning options for Day Treatment and two learning options for Residential Schools. We have also published our Ill Person Flowchart. We are also sharing details for each of our School Schedules. For more information please refer to the New York State PreK - Grade 12 COVID19 Toolkit.
