Hill Community Event: 

Parents, Teachers, and Staff, we invite you to our First Hill Community Event! Please join us for a casual night of drinks and appetizers on Thursday, November 10th, 4:30pm-7:30pm at Postino’s (8th & Colorado). There is NO COST to attend this event. We can’t wait to see you there!! 

Canned Food Drive

Help your Legacy Squad earn points by donating non-perishable food items to the Hill Cares Harvest Basket Canned Food Drive (Food Drive Wish List).  Our goal is to provide 100 Hill Families in need with enough food to help them get through the week of School Break. Each food item donated will earn your Legacy Squad one point!  Navy and Marigold collection boxes are located in the Main Office (Room 135) and points will be tallied at the end of each day. The last day to drop off food is Wednesday, November 16th or cash donations can be made anytime HERE.  Thank you for supporting your Legacy Squad and the Hill Middle School Community!

Families who would like to receive a Harvest Basket should complete this form to be added to our list.  We will contact you the week before School Break with details for distribution.

Door Dash 

In order to respect class schedules, and maintain the safety of our school, the school policy is that neither families nor students can use Door Dash or other services for lunch delivery

Attendance Email

Hill Families, we have a new attendance email that you can use in lieu of the attendance phone line. Please email hillattendance.groups@dpsk12.net with your student’s name, parent/guardian name, parent/guardian phone number, and the reason for the absence. You may still call in your student’s attendance, but this can be helpful for many families.
