Freshman and New Student Orientation on August 23 in HHS MAIN GYM (Location Change)
Welcome, Class of 2020, New Students, and Parents!
On Tuesday, August 23, 2016, students are invited to begin your experience at Hillsborough High School by participating in our Freshman and New Student Orientation program. Orientation begins with homeroom at 8:30 AM and concludes at approximately 11:00 AM. Students are welcome to arrive as early as 8:00 AM to begin looking for homerooms and getting to know the building (a school map is also included with this alert to facilitate locating homerooms for the first time). The morning session is only for freshmen and for students in grades 10 through 12 who are new to HHS this year. During this session, you will have the opportunity to meet our Peer Mentors, who are upperclassmen with whom the freshmen will be meeting throughout the year, as well as to try out your locker, tour the building, meet several staff members, and learn important information to help you make your first year here a great one.
Bus transportation to and from HHS will be provided for those students who ride buses during the school year. Bus numbers and times will be available in the Genesis Parent Portal on August 5 (continue to check back for busing updates in case of changes prior to the start of school). Pick-up times for orientation will be ONE (1) HOUR LATER than the regular pick-up time for a normal school day. If you cannot access Genesis, first follow the instructions available on the district website. If that does not work, call Mrs. LaGreca at (908) 431-6600, Ext. 2427, by August 19 for assistance.
Parents of freshmen and new students are also invited to attend the Parent Orientation at 7:00 PM on Tuesday, August 23, in the Main Gym.
We look forward to seeing everyone! Best wishes for a happy and successful 2016-2017 school year! Welcome to Hillsborough High School!
Karen A. Bingert, Principal
