Student Shadows
SHADOW INFORMATION: 
Mark your calendars! Hill Campus of Arts and Sciences will be offering one shadow day on February 14, 2020. We are aware this is DPS non-student contact day but due to high numbers in classes we cannot accommodate our current student population and shadows without sacrificing in other areas which we feel are of utmost importance. Many Hill students will be present on the 14th as well as 6th grade and elective teachers. Hosting one shadow day gives our prospective students the experience of what it is like to be a middle schooler, learn our expectations and meet many of their future peers and teachers! We will be hosting a half day shadow on February 14; it will begin at 7:45 AM and pick up is at 11:10 AM. Lunch will not be provided shadows, please make sure your student has had breakfast before they arrive.
