Welcome to Hilliard Elementary School! Our school is a exciting and fun place to learn and grow. Parents, faculty, staff and students work together to ensure our students' success. Our community is very supportive of our school as indicated by our large number of volunteers daily. We are also proud to be an "A School" for the past 14 years. We look forward to each new year and new challenges that arise.
2020-2021 School Calendar Survey
The Nassau County School District has prepared two options for the 2020– 2021 school year calendar. The two options were developed based on a variety of statutory and administrative rules and on the needs of middle and high schools that offer semester courses. Details of each option are provided below:
Commonalities in Both Options A and B
- August 10, 2020 is the first day of school in both options. This is due to a state statute that prohibits school districts from starting the first student day of school earlier than August 10th.
- The total number of student days is 180, per state statute.
- Every Wednesday is an early dismissal day, as designated with an asterisk.
- Each calendar includes four (4) half days for students for additional planning time for teachers after student dismissal. These dates are highlighted in orange.
Differences Between Option A and B
- Option A has Thanksgiving Holidays beginning Wednesday, November 25th; while Option B has Thanksgiving Holidays beginning Monday, November 23rd.
- Though Option B allows for the full week of Thanksgiving off, it delays the beginning of the Winter Break until December 22nd.
- Option A has students return from Winter Break January 5th, 2021.
- Option B has students return from Winter Break January 7th, 2021.
- Option A provides two student/teacher holidays in April.
