Dear Parents and Guardians,

On behalf of the Board of Trustees and our staff, we want to extend a warm welcome to the 2018-19 school year! We look forward to continuing our strong collaboration with parents and our dedicated community to provide excellent educational programming for all Hillsborough City School District students.

Our small class sizes, safe and clean schools, and overall excellence would not be possible were it not for the fact that we work closely with all of our parents and our amazing district and town partners. Our students’ success is something that should make us all proud.

As a school district, we set high expectations for all students in learning environments which also support social-emotional growth. The combination of these factors leads to high academic achievement which has always been one of our most important goals. Each year we see our students performing well across various local and state measures. In keeping with high expectations supported by social-emotional programs for all students and developing new initiatives and policies, we keep our Essential Outcomes at the forefront of our work for our students.

If at any time you have questions or concerns regarding your child or any aspect of the school district’s operation, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s principal, or any one of our district level staff. We can be reached at 650.342.5193. The phrase “open door policy” means something in this district, and you will find us all to be very accessible and ready to listen. I would also like to take the opportunity to invite you to attend the Superintendent Coffees during the year. These meetings are an opportunity for parents to learn more about the district and to ask questions and make comments. .

We are excited to welcome our students and their families to our campuses! Our maintenance and operations teams have worked diligently all summer preparing our facilities for the start of school and our Director or Technology and her team have spent time preparing iPads and Chromebooks for deployment at all grade levels - we are so thankful for the support of HSF and our community-at-large for their generous support of technology in our schools

The beginning of the school year provides a fresh start for each of us: a new year of optimism, high expectations, and commitment. We have dedicated staff, talented administrators, and a special community that supports our schools. Please remember that your individual and collective involvement in your school makes an enormous difference, and we thank you in advance for your participation!

More than two decades of research findings are unequivocal: the most important aspect of a school in terms of student learning is teacher quality, and our teachers are among the best!

Students in K-2 have access to a reading specialist. 3rd-5th grade students participate in our Innovation Labs where they create and explore. K-5 students participate in music classes, and 4th-8th grade students have access to instrument instruction. Spanish instruction begins in 4th grade, and Mandarin is offered in our middle school. All of our schools have a dedicated counselor, teacher librarian, physical educator, and more!

Through the generosity of donors, the Hillsborough Schools Foundation pledged $3.5 million to our schools for this school year. Last year's Fund-A-Need raised funds for traffic and safety. Thank you!
