Remote Learning


In the face of COVID-19, Hillel Day School remains steadfast in its mission to inspire a passion for learning. Within a matter of days after the outbreak, dedicated faculty launched remote learning, and education has continued unabated. 

From our youngest learners to our graduating eighth graders, students and teachers are successfully connecting online to engage in meaningful learning.  Although our 16 acre campus is closed, Hillel Day School is open!

Whether contributing to class discussions in live Google Hangout sessions, or learning independently, at their own pace, from lessons delivered via Seesaw, students are building skills, learning content, and making time for creativity. 

  • In Science, students are calculating speed using objects found at home
  • In Math, students are making predictions, finding patterns, and discovering the ways math applies to everyday life
  • In Language Arts, students are writing non-fiction, essays, and reading books as a community
  • In Social Studies, students are studying American and world history
  • In Judaic Studies, students are learning Hebrew vocabulary, Rabbinics, and preparing for Passover
  • In Advisory, students are connecting with one another, and maintaining the social-emotional connections that foster wellbeing
At Hillel, children are learning that they can persevere through whatever challenges they face, nurtured by the adults - parents and teachers alike - who will help them handle the feelings that arise in uncertain times.

Caroline and Paul Margolis, whose daughter Eleanor is a fourth grader, report that they are “proud of the way Eleanor has taken responsibility to get her assignments done,” and grateful to teachers, who respond quickly to student needs despite having their own children to tend to at home. “I’m working from home, and it’s hard,” Caroline said. “I can’t imagine teaching my own kids, and a class at the same time!”

Outside of school, the family is spending “lots of quality time together,” she adds. “Daily walks, dinner together, baking, and a family movie every night.”
