    Drop off

    Our parent drop off in the morning will not change at all.  

    Student Pick up

    Parent pick up logistics 

    This has been changed a little.  To alleviate potential back ups on Washington St, grades K-3 and 4+5 students with younger siblings, will continue to be picked up in the back of the school, same as before. They may have a new parent pick up number.  Keep an eye out for an updated number in your students folder.    

    Grades 4-5 students with NO younger siblings at Silver Hill, are going to be escorted to the Westford St. path.  

    Westford St. is the street right to Bartlett school.  Parents should travel up Westford St and will escort students for pick up.

    Please take a look at these informational powerpoints to visualize the changes.

    Jaguar families,

    I’m forwarding some information here about the Virtual Cultural Treasures Camp coming up at the end of April. 

    Hello,

    I am writing as Education Coordinator (not as important as it sounds) for the Haverhill Firefighting Museum and the Cultural Treasures of Haverhill (Tattersall Farm, Winnekenni, Buttonwoods, Printmaking Musuem, etc.). We are offering a Virtual Camp over April school vacation targeted to ages 8-12 (but not a strict age parameter). It will be for 4 days, 8 treasures, short 45-50 minutes presentations and interactive project. Preregistration is required and there will be materials packets distributed to registered participants ahead of the week. It is only 10.00. 

    We were hoping that this flyer could be approved and sent out to the schools, digitally, would probably be best and cost effective; ideally we would like to get it onto the HPS website and School websites where it could be downloaded for Registration purposes. 

    Please let me know if this is possible. The Treasures have all been shut down for over a year and we are hoping to reopen this summer, but thought  that offering this program would be a great way to reach out to kids and families and keep us in their minds when we are open again. Also some of the Treasures are unfamiliar to even local residents and they are such rich resources. The Printmaking Museum is fabulous and they always have interactive programs on Saturdays. 

    I am attaching a PDF pf the Flyer.

    Thank you so much for your consideration. Please contact me by email, text or phone if you have any questions.

    Jaguar families,

    I hope your basketball brackets look better than mine… As usual, this week is a busy week at Silver Hill. Our admin team has been working on many different aspects of our reopening plan to full in person learning. I have attached to the updated schedule that will hopefully clarify any questions about who is coming in and when.  Also just a reminder to make sure your child is continuing with their i-Ready progress. The classrooms are working against each other and it is set up similar to the March Madness basketball brackets. Classrooms are working against classrooms to log in as much time towards their 30 to 49 minutes “sweet spot” as possible. Good luck.  

    Report cards/Parent-teacher conferences 

    Report cards will be issued on Thursday, April 1st. No, it is not an April Fool’s prank it just happens to be the day that it falls on.  Sorry, No jokes here but you all could have some fun with your own children.   We will be having parent-teacher conferences on April 6th. Your child’s teacher will be reaching out to set up times.

    No school

    There will be no school this coming Friday due to Good Friday.

    Thirsty students…

    Please have your child bring in a refillable container / bottle for water.  We do have water bottle refill stations they can use throughout the day to refill their bottles.  A hydrated little one is a happy and productive cherub.


    Thank you and have a great week.

    Asst. Principal

    Hello Jaguar Families,

    Spring has officially arrived and the weather was absolutely perfect to get Spring off to a great start.  This past week, there was a great deal of discussion about the return to school survey and newly released in-person learning calendar passed by the school committee. I have attached it so please read it over carefully to minimize any confusion or concerns you may have. The district will start the return to in person learning on the week of 4/5/21.  We will provide more information over the coming weeks. 

    We are hard at work trying to look at the best ways we can minimize classroom interruptions and maximize on time learning.  There’s a great deal of moving parts we need to iron out these next few weeks.  On top of examining classrooms and staffing, we need to take a look at the drop off and pick up procedure, duty schedules, lunches and many little nuances that make the building run so smoothly. I would like to ask for your patience over the next few weeks in order to make Silver Hill as efficient as it always is.  With that being said, please don’t hesitate to reach out with any question or suggestions you may have.   

    Marks close:

    Just a reminder about grades.  Marks will close on 3/25 so make sure you have your cherubs complete any outstanding assignments that have not been completed or “submitted” to their teachers…

    A very special ‘Shout Out’ to our past and upcoming Birthdays:

    3/14 Kolby B., Devyn G., Alondra P.
    3/15 Jisela E., Josue V, Isabella S., Adriana A
