HMS Bearcat Bulletin
A Note from Ms. Buschmann
For those of you new to this district, building, or just this newsletter; toward the beginning of each month, I will publish the Bearcat Bulletin to help you keep up with news from Hermann Middle School. Special event flyers and invitations will also be sent using this tool. More frequent news can be found on our Facebook page (the link is below in the contact section) and on the announcements section of Infinite Campus. Sometimes the newsletter gets long, but it is packed full of helpful articles and usually some great pictures.
HMS Supply List
5th and 6th Grade Families
This year, 6th graders will retain the Chromebooks they were issued last year and incoming 5th graders will be assigned a Chromebook. Gasconade County R-1 School District requires insurance to be purchased each year before a student can pick up his or her Chromebook. The District Insurance is a premium of $10 per school year. The coverage takes effect once payment is received, and the Chromebook is issued to your student. The program fee is non-refundable, and does not transfer to the next school year if the insurance is not used. The insurance program fee is designed to help cover the cost of out-of-warranty repairs and alleviate some of the financial burden of the family for computer maintenance and repair up to the total cost of the device ($200).
The full guidebook and description of the insurance can be found here: Gasconade County R-I Schools Chromebook Handbook
There will be a meeting at open house from 6:30- 6:55 for all 5th and 6th grade parents to review the Chromebook policy and insurance program. Fees will also be collected at this time.
