Class Schedules:
Students will be able to access a draft of their 22-23 schedule via Aeries Student Portal starting on Friday August 5th at 5pm.  Please note that our counseling team continues to work to finalize classes and balance schedules, so there may be some changes before the first day of school.  If students find that there is an error in their schedule, please utilize this Google Form to communicate with your counselor. Students will need to be signed in with their SMUHSD email account. Counselors are working on scheduling and will not be able to respond directly to emails.  

Food Services
The San Mateo Union High School district will again provide free breakfast, brunch and lunch for all students. We will be introducing new phone-based technologies to speed up services.
Hillsdale High School Student Handbook

All students and families are asked to review our Student Handbook, found on our website and linked here.  Please set aside time to sit down with your student to read the handbook. Students will also review it with their advisors in the first week of school. After reading and reviewing the handbook, each student and their parent/guardian must sign their name to the 22-23 Mandatory Signature Page linked here. This signature form must be signed and submitted by all students and one parent/guardian by August 22nd, 2022.
