Update Contact Information and Sign Forms
Hilliard City Schools cares about maintaining a high quality educational experience for students while also streamlining operational costs. With this goal in mind, parents can now pay school related fees online without the extra cost of a processing fee!
Parents will be able to pay lost book fees, class/course fees and extracurricular participation fees through the Home Access Center without a transaction fee. While processing fees for meal payments will continue to be billed to the family, Hilliard City Schools negotiated a reduction of these fees to 3.99 percent.
In addition to making fee payments online, parents may also sign off on important forms and receive key information such as:
- updating emergency contact information; (THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT! PLEASE DO IT IMMEDIATELY. )
- signing off on athletic/extracurricular participation forms;
- accessing student schedules for middle and high school students;
- reviewing attendance and discipline information;
- receiving report cards and interims in grades 6-12;
- getting transcripts for grades 6-12; and,
- finding class work assignments and scores for grades 6-12.
Be sure to check out the Home Access Center to update your emergency contact information, sign off on key forms, pay your school related fees and find important information related to your student’s learning experience. For additional information, please contact the school office at 614-921-7400.
ATTENTION Parents of all Students (ESPECIALLY ATHLETES)
Make sure your EMERGENCY CONTACT INFORMATION and INSURANCE INFORMATION is updated on Home Access! Just a reminder, all athletes must be covered by medical insurance. Insurance can be purchased through the school if needed. Contact the Athletic Department for details.
Home Access Link: https://homeaccess.hboe.org/ After you sign-in, click on the ‘Update Student Information’ option and follow the instructions at the top of the page. Scroll down to review and update appropriate information, and in particular, review the “Medical and Misc. Information” section to update insurance information and sign-off on athletic related forms.
You also need to electronically “sign-off” on the Risk Acknowledgement, Travel Permit, Concussion and Athletic Handbook Acknowledgement documents, located on Home Access. Please review and sign-off of these documents in Home Access in order to be prepared to participate on the first day of practice/tryouts.
Fall sports participation fee ($100 per sport for high school, $80 for middle school) can be paid online at www.mypaymentsplus.com . If necessary, payments can also be paid in the HS Athletic Office or the Main Office. DO NOT give participation fees to coaches. They have been instructed not to take it.
Health Screenings Information
The Hilliard City School Nurses will be conducting health screenings on selected grade levels in the near future. Hearing screening is done on kindergarten, first, third, fifth and ninth grade students while vision is performed on the same grade levels as well as seventh grade. Scoliosis screening is done on all sixth and seventh graders. These are the grades, which the Ohio Department of Health recommends for screening. If a student fails the first screening, a second screening is done. If the student then has difficulty a referral will be mailed to the parent. Although all screenings are fairly accurate, this is not a substitute for a regular visit to your physician or eye doctor. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call your school nurse.
As we start the new school year our passion for growth, our commitment to excellence, is on display. Too often we hear about new programs, compare ourselves to successful programs in other places, or simply talk about the changes we’d like to see in our schools. It is very easy to talk the talk; it is much more challenging to actually walk the walk. It is easy to see the value in progress; it is much more difficult to change behavior . . . to create the experiences.
Distribution of the 2014-2015 yearbooks is tentatively scheduled for the end of September. If you forgot to order that book, don’t delay any further! Put yourself on the wait list! Any books leftover after distribution will become available to those on the wait list before any others! Click here: https://goo.gl/svhPqt

When you start looking at your middle and high school students’ schedule for the 2015-2016 school year you will notice substantial decreases in fees for certain classes. This is due to changes the School Board made to fee schedules adopted during the May 11th Board meeting.
For middle school, 16 fees have been completely removed; these include social studies and some science fees. At the high school level fees have been removed for 49 courses, including world languages, math and performing arts. There are still AP charged course fees. Read More…
In an effort to help save families money our middle school teachers and administrators have dramatically reduced the number of school supplies you need to buy for your student. By writing our own textbooks and focusing on blended learning in our classrooms our team has been able to cut out some supplies. We understand the costs associated with back to school time and we want to do our part to keep those costs as low as possible for our families. Read More…
