  • parent portal
    The Hillsdale Public Schools will continue to use the Realtime Emergency Contact system to keep parents apprised of school closing, early dismissals, and other important district  announcements. If you have not already done so, we encourage parents to use the Parent Portal to sign-up for text, email, and phone alerts. You can also view your child's report card and lunch balance using the Parent Portal.
