Guide to Ellsworth Hill : Everything you need to know about being part of our school!
Picking Up Your Child: When picking your child up for an appointment, please be sure to send a note to your child's teacher. Parents need to sign their child out at Door A. If there is a change of dismissal during the school day, please call the office (by 3:15pm at the latest) to let staff know your child will be a car rider, or bus rider for that day. The office staff needs time to let your child's teacher know of the change in transportation. Thank you!
Attendance Line: Please call 330-653-1200 to report your child's absence. You may leave a voicemail with all the requested information.
School Lunch Info: Breakfast and Lunch will be free again this year for all students.
COVID-19 Dashboard: Just a reminder that an email will be sent to all parents or guardians if there is a positive COVID case in your child’s class or school sponsored extracurricular activity. Parents can visit the COVID-19 Dashboard on the district website at https://www.hudson.k12.oh.us/domain/2062 or you can go to www.hudson.k12.oh.us>COVID-19 reporting to see the total number of cases at any building.
Technology (Wearables): As the “Internet of Things” continues to evolve and revolutionize, wearable technology is becoming increasingly popular. Smart watches that incorporate activity trackers and have the ability to make phone calls and send messages are perhaps the most notable among wearables. Gizmos watches, popular among younger students, help them stay connected to their parents in a safe, more controlled way. Hudson City Schools permits students to wear Gizmos watches and other wearables as long as they do not cause a distraction and are used appropriately. We recommend that parents turn off all games during the school day. Also, students should not use a wearable during school hours to call home. If a student is ill or has a concern, he or she should go to his or her teacher or trusted adult, and the adult will take care of the student. Our goal remains to support student use of technology responsibly
