Hillview Middle School

Announcements

If you or someone you know have children who will be starting school in August, Kindergarten through 8th grade, enrollment is available using our new online enrollment system, PowerSchool Enrollment. 

 

Textbook Return - 5/26, 5/27, & 5/28 - 8:00am - 1:00pm

This week, we are hoping to collect most of our textbooks.  If you need a book to complete online learning, please hold on to it.  Since most books are online though, students shouldn't need to keep the paper copies and we would like to get those back, especially our social studies books.  If you have any textbooks, library books, classroom books, or school books of any kind, we will have our book drop out near the front doors of the school from 8am - 1pm Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday this week.  Please stop by and drop the books in the book drop.  We are NOT collecting Chromebooks at this time, so please hold on to those.  Please remember to follow social distancing guidelines; if someone is dropping off a book, please wait until they move away before dropping yours in the book drop.

Spring Pictures

Many of you have asked about the school pictures we did right before the closure. Families will need to call Lifetouch directly at 1-800-736-4753. 
They will give you a unique code that you can use to log in online at Mylifetouch.com so you can view the pictures and make orders.

 

Distant Learning Continues

 

The school buildings are closed for the rest of this year, so all classes will be done online. Please understand, school is not ending, it will just be different.

We hope everyone is doing well. We miss you all and wish we could be going back to Hillview.  This new model of instruction will likely have a few speed bumps, both at home and at school, so we hope everyone will be patient as we move forward.  Thank you, and don't forget to keep checking our web page and the district web page for updates!

Staff have formal office hours.  Those details are on their Google Classroom page, but here is that basic schedule:

Teacher Office Hours Schedule: 

                        Language Arts Department               - 8:00 - 9:00 

                        Science Department                           - 9:00 - 10:00

                        Social Studies Department                - 10:00 - 11:00

                        PE Department                                    - 11:00 - 12:00

                        Elective Department                           - 12:00 - 1:00

                        Math Department                                - 1:00 - 2:00

 

Students should log in to each class's Google Classroom on Monday, and then visit their odd / even classes on Tuesday - Friday, much like we would normally do at school.  Due dates will be much more flexible than regular school, so many assignments may be posted on one day, but not due until the end of the week. If you have questions about classes, can't seem to find information about a class, the Google Classroom code, schedule, work, etc., please email that teacher directly. 

Parents, we have developed a basic schedule for you for when students should access Google Classroom for each class and when they should be working on those classes.  Unless a teacher is going to have live video instruction, the schedule is a suggested one to follow. If your child needs to do their work before or after that time, that is fine. We are working to give a lot of flexibility on when they complete their work.  That schedule is posted in our phone message from 4/4/20, and also here:

California Gold Ribbon School

Hillview Middle School was selected as a 2017 California Gold Ribbon School. We are the only Gold Ribbon middle school in the Antelope Valley and the only school selected in the AV for the 2017 award. Great job to the entire Hillview Community!

California Department of Education Gold Ribbon School

Hillview Middle School is located in the southwest portion of the Antelope Valley. It serves 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students and has approximately 990 students enrolled. 6th grade students from Cottonwood, Esperanza, and Rancho Vista feed into Hillview Middle School. The Hillview sixth grade population is made up of students that applied to attend a 6th grade honors program. These students were selected to attend Hillview through an application process which required good attendance and a minimum 3.0 GPA in fourth and fifth grade (or 3/4 grades on standards based report cards.) These students come from various schools within the district and outside of the district. The school buildings consist of one main building composed of 20 classrooms, two Science Labs, Library, Home Economics room, Art Room, Woodshop, two Computer Labs and a Cafeteria. There are also a meeting/conference room, a speech room, a counselor’s office, an office for our bi-lingual aide, and the administrative offices. In addition, there are 16 relocatable classrooms, a music room, and a gymnasium with boys’ and girls’ locker rooms, and two additional computer labs. The school includes grass and concrete play areas with equipment and a patio with picnic tables.

School District Integrated Pest Management Plan

It is the goal of Westside Union School District to implement IPM by focusing on long-term prevention or suppression of pests through accurate pest identification, by frequent monitoring for pest presence, by applying appropriate action levels, and by making the habitat less conducive to pests using sanitation and mechanical and physical controls. Pesticides that are effective will be used in a manner that minimizes risks to people, property, and the environment, and only after other options have been shown ineffective.

Our pest management objectives are:

  • To implement a safe and effective program to protect the health and well-being of students and staff, plus maintain a productive learning environment.
  • Prevent pests from spreading in the schools and minimize pesticide exposure to students, staff, and the public.
