Dear HRMS Families,

This newsletter has information on 8th Grade Promotion and the weekly Principal’s Chat.

8th Grade Promotion

District and secondary school administration recently met to review current health requirements to determine what is permissible when we celebrate our 8th Grade students transition to HRVHS. HRMS and Wyeast have reserved the outdoor stadium at HRVHS for our promotion ceremonies. This will allow distancing and increase our ability to conduct the ceremony in a safe manner. HRMS is planning to hold our Promotion Ceremony of the High School Graduating Class of 2026 at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, June 15. We will switch gears if the pandemic and health requirements disallow an in-person gathering.

I am asking again for family volunteers to plan activities for our kids in lieu of a dance. We will hold the field day on Tuesday, June 15. Our first meeting to plan activities will be Tuesday, May 18 at 6:00 PM. Please RSVP with me at and I will invite you to the Google Meet. Thank you!
