Buy Your 2020 Yearbook TODAY!

No matter your current perception of high school, a yearbook is a timeless keepsake that you will look back at for the rest of your life. There’s nothing from high school that will be as special as a yearbook as it allows you to look back on your experience and remember people and events you would have otherwise forgotten. It’s a small price for such a monumental archive of memories. Don’t let yourself grow old wish you had bought a yearbook. Buy your yearbook today! Click here to buy the 2020 Yearbook on the Jostens website.

Master Facility Plan Community Survey

As part of the district’s Master Facility Plan work we know we must engage our families.  We want to answer your questions, gather your input and hear your concerns.  We also know how busy everyone is, and realize it’s difficult to attend meetings.

For this reason we are asking you to take time, whenever you can find it, to take part in a survey, which was developed after months of research from our Master Facility Plan Steering Committee. We have a video you can watch that walks you through our district scenarios and options. Those options are located on the Master Facility Plan webpage, under documents.

The webpage also contains all the information the Steering Committee has worked on over the past several months, including presentations, documents and a glossary of terms. You can access this information on any device in your own time.

Be Well Registration Open

 On February 29, the Hilliard and Dublin City Schools will again present Be Well – A Parent University Event.  This day of programming will take place at both Hilliard Darby High School and Dublin City Schools’ Emerald Campus.

Sessions will start at 8am at Darby, and 11am at the Emerald Campus.  There will be one keynote this year, Author Jessica Lahey.  She will speak about her book, The Gift of Failure, at 9am at Darby.  There are still two book talks left to discuss her book, one on January 29, and the other is February 8.  You can still register for one talk.

Registration is now open.  The course catalog is online, so you can take some time to plan which sessions you want to attend.  Families are able to attend in Hilliard or Dublin, pick which course fits your busy schedule.  You can also sign up for a free lunch if you would be in Hilliard over the lunch hour.

As part of the Be Well this year, Dawson will host the “Ready for Tomorrow Career & College Expo” from 10:00am until 12:30pm in the Darby gymnasium.  There will be opportunities for students and parents to connect with businesses such as OhioHealth, BMW Financial Services and Columbus Street Financial Planning.

Fulbright Award Recipient and Grad Inspires our Students

Just before leaving for England to take part in the Fulbright Fellowship, 2014 Hilliard Davidson graduate Chloe Shevlin took the time to speak to the school’s Women in Engineering (WIE) group.  You can read more about Chloe’s journey and why she feels it’s important to give back to the district that prepared her to be Ready for Tomorrow.

 Summer Plans for District Sports

As a parent, scheduling time during the summer for family vacations can be challenging with sports schedules. The Hilliard City School District is blessed to have dedicated, passionate coaches willing to create opportunities for our athletes during the summer months. Our summer conditioning programs, camps, and leagues keep our students involved, reinforce a strong work ethic, and create a team culture.

As our middle and high school families consider plans for the summer, please know we have two district expectations.  We have discussed these expectations with our athletic departments and outlined them on our web page for our families.

 Keep Children Home when Sick

We know this time of year there a lots of illnesses going around, from the common cold to the Flu.  In an effort to stop the spread of illness, we want to remind you of the district policy that a student needs to be fever free, without medicine, for 24 hours and vomiting/diarrhea free for 24 hours before returning to school.   Please help us in keeping our students and staff healthy!
