No School (District)
Angst is an IndieFlix Original, documentary designed to raise awareness around anxiety. The film includes interviews with kids, teens, educators, experts, parents and a very special interview with Michael Phelps.
In Partnership with the Dublin City Schools we will be co-hosting four free screenings of this movie. The goal of the film is to help people identify and understand the symptoms of anxiety and encourage them to reach out for help. We invite you to attend any of the nights below that work with your schedule.

In Hilliard City Schools, we are celebrating a decade of innovation. In 2008/09, our schools and community created a plan to prepare students for the future, and now we can celebrate! We are proud to share with you, all that we have accomplished over the last 10 years. Our students, staff and community are on the cutting edge of innovation. Over the next several weeks we will be posting videos to show our District’s successes.
Thank you for your support of our Hilliard City Schools. Although we have a lot to celebrate, we cannot rest on our success. We already have a team working on what’s next! We look forward to continuing on a path of innovation, ensuring our students are Ready for Tomorrow!
Please make plans to attend the 2018 State of the Schools address on Thursday, October 25. This year we will host the event in partnership with The Hilliard Area Chamber of Commerce and Heritage Golf Club. We will have light appetizers and music from the HCSD Honors String Quartet beginning at 6pm at Heritage Golf Club. The presentation will begin at 6:30pm. We are grateful to our sponsors of the evening, Credit Union of Ohio, Elford and Fanning/Howey Associates, Inc.
Apple has announced that iOS12 (the latest operating system for the iPad) will release to the public on Monday, September 17. We will be blocking the update for the next few weeks on district-owned devices. Students and staff will not be able to run the update on district devices at school or at home.
The purpose for blocking the update is several fold. Some apps will not have updates out or will have significant issues with the new OS. We would like to test our major apps such as AirServer, Canvas, Notability, Google Apps, etc. so that we know that they work. This will reduce issues students and staff have with essential applications.
Secondly, ODE has not approved iOS12 for state testing yet. Since all of our students take state tests including the ELL screener, we want to make sure that students will not have technology issues when taking those tests.
In addition, we will block iOS12 updates on the school Wi-Fi for the next week or so while users run those updates on their personal devices like iPhones to preserve bandwidth for school work.
Thanks for your patience. As soon as we have worked through these evaluations, we will begin to open updates for iOS12.
