A NOTE FROM YOUR HUGHES MIDDLE SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS
HMS Parents and Friends,
Things are feeling good at Hughes Middle School. The cooler temperatures have arrived and a rhythm for this grading period has as well. Trust us, both are welcome. We are very fortunate at Hughes to have compliant staff and students who are taking "Student HEALTH & SAFETY" quite serious. We can not thank you enough, our parents and guardians, for your support and encouragement as this "new normal" continues to be redefined.
Believe it or not, it is time to decide about your child's instructional choice for the next grading period. In this newsletter you will find more specific instructions to record your choice for the 3rd grading period which includes the dates November 9 through December 18. Remember, the primary reason for the timing of your decision is the need for us to properly prepare for additional students. If a change is needed, your action is required.
Also, in this newsletter, there is valuable information about virtual learning that everyone needs to know. See VIRTUAL LEARNING: A GUIDE FOR FAMILIES and click the link to learn more.
In closing, we want to remind you that as the year continues, assessments will be given to measure your child's progress. It is vital to provide these assessments so we can know how we may best help your child grow academically. Encourage your child to do his/her best with each and every assessment that arises. We love seeing your child progress even in these trying times. Thanks for all you do and will do for your child's success.
Until next time,
Your HMS Administrative Team
