In the Spotlight



    August 2, 2021


    Dear Hillview Families, 

    I hope that this letter finds you well and that you have enjoyed special time with family and friends this summer.  I believe that summer provides us with a perfect opportunity to enjoy the simple things in life, especially after the conclusion of a school year that was ever-changing and considerably challenging.  Fortunately, at Hillview Elementary School, we have the support and care of selfless and dedicated families and staff members, who have always collaborated so that every student feels successful in all areas: academically, socially and emotionally.  Since March of 2020, we have overcome many hurdles together, consistently putting the needs of our students' welfare at the forefront.  At Hillview, and at every school, we are absolutely thrilled to open our doors to all students on Tuesday, September 7th, 2021.

    In this letter, I want to welcome our new and returning students and share my excitement about beginning a school year that does not require a hybrid schedule or asynchronous learning.  I recognize that parents have questions about what September will look like.  While our staff members have many things in place for September, we will also keep in mind that regulations and procedures can change from now until the first day of school.  Towards the end of August, additional information will be shared with LCSD families when schools receive clear and concise updated guidelines from the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH), the New York State Department of Education (NYSED) and the Erie County Department of Health (ECDOH).  Schools are still required to complete contract tracing and require safe social distancing.  Information about school visitor protocol, a possible kindergarten student classroom visit, supply drop off plans, etc. will be included once the schools receive updated information.

    As we prepare for the opening of the 2021-2022 school year, our custodial staff continues to work hard to maintain a clean, safe and healthy learning environment for our students and for the entire Hillview Elementary School community.  The attached packet will provide you with teacher information, documents to review and forms to complete.  Please take some time to read the contents and share pertinent details with your children.  

    • In this packet, there is a Health Office Update form for students who are in grades 1-3. Families of kindergarten students already sent this information to our nurse, Mrs. Bacher, when the students registered for kindergarten.  If there are medicines that need to be dropped off for your child, please call Mrs. Bacher at 686-3283, and she can arrange to pick them up from you in our bus loop facing Pleasantview Drive on September 1st or September 2nd.  All forms, including a Dental Health Certification form for grade 1 and grade 3 students, are included in this mailing and should be completed and returned when school begins.
    • All breakfasts and lunches will continue to remain free of charge for all students.
    • Students can enter the building at 8:50 am.  Staff members will assist students when they enter the school.  If you are dropping students off in the front loop facing Transit Road, please have them remain in their vehicles and staff members will guide them into the building.  Please form two lanes when you enter the parking lot facing Transit Road and then merge into one drop off lane as you enter the front drop off loop.  No one can enter the building before 8:50 am.  
    • Our dismissal time for students being picked up by a parent/guardian begins at 3:15 pm.  We incorporate a “drive through” pick up experience.  A purple “pick up card” is included in this packet and will need to be displayed on the dashboard.  Parents/guardians will also need to show their photo ID through their car window.  Parents, or those who are designated as someone who can pick up the child or children, will not need to sign his/her name, but must display the pick up card and his/her photo ID.  Students riding a bus will be sent to individual buses starting at approximately 3:25 pm.  We encourage students to ride the bus as often as possible.  Please expect dismissal delays during the first couple of weeks of school as we become accustomed to your child’s transportation arrangements.
    • To help ensure that we have a safe and timely dismissal each day, please send in all notes and information for your child’s dismissal information ahead of time or for that morning if any changes are needed.  A helpful form for sharing your child’s dismissal arrangements is included in this packet.  Avoiding last minute changes and phone calls about dismissal plans are greatly appreciated.
    • Monthly newsletters and calendars from Hillview will be posted on our school website in the “virtual backpack” section.  Please be sure to check the district website and school website regularly for letters and updates.  
    •  All Hillview families are also encouraged to join the Hillview Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).  Our PTO provides our students with many wonderful and memorable experiences, events and programs throughout the school year.  You can also follow us on Twitter, where many fun school photos are posted.  Please find us at “HillviewES@EsHillview.”

    Thank you for taking the time to read this important information.  Again, additional information for families will be shared near the end of the month.  I hope you all enjoy the next five weeks of your summer vacation!



    Mrs. Amy B. Moeller
