Sandy Hill Family Portal

Resources, tools, and information for Sandy Hill families. If you need something that you don't see here, please reach out and let us know!

Opportunities to Participate

A key reason families choose Sandy Hill is to be involved in their child's early education experience. Our mission is to provide an enriching and stimulating developmental preschool experience for young children through dedicated and committed parent participation.


Volunteering is a wonderful way to be involved in the planning and operation of the school as well as your child’s preschool experience. We offer volunteer opportunities within the classroom as well as for the school. While it is not mandatory to volunteer, it is much appreciated by the staff, children, and other families.


It is important that if you do volunteer, that you are committed to completing the tasks required, so please embrace your role and get help from the community when you need it.


Thank you for contributing your time and talents to help Sandy Hill be an exceptional place for children, their families, and our staff. 


Parent Board Meetings

Sandy Hill is run by its families in cooperation with staff. We are governed by the Parent Board and a meeting is held each month that is open to all Sandy Hill Families and Teachers. To best accommodate as many participants as possible, this year we will be moving to avirtu al meeting format.

  • When: 9:15-10:15am, first Friday of each month

  • Where: Virtually. To join the meeting, click the button below, or join by phone +1 260-676-0152‬ PIN: ‪811 396 160‬#

Playground App

Sandy Hill uses a program called Playground for attendance, billing, parent communication, mandatory forms, and more.


Anyone dropping off/picking up children should download Playground to their mobile device in order to check the student in and out of school.


It is also strongly recommended that you ensure notifications are enabled, as it is frequently the first method Sandy Hill will use to try to contact families.


If you need help with Playground, they have excellent online resources, or you can ask in the Director's office.
