👘 Dress Code 👗
All students must follow the HMS dress code to keep our school appropriate. Clothing must cover the entire buttocks. Shirts and tops may not expose bare midriffs, bare shoulders, nor be deeply or narrowly cut in the front, back, or under the arms. Halter tops, spaghetti straps, and strapless tops are not acceptable. Clothing that exposes undergarments will not be tolerated for males or females. Clothing should be a comfortable, appropriate fit- not too tight or short. Anything out of this dress code will be sent down to ISS (in school suspension) for a change of clothes.

Parking Lot Procedures 🚗
Parents please remember that the parking lot entrance has 2 lanes. If you choose the right lane, you will drive around and drop your student off along the blue line that leads to Hillcrest. If you choose the left lane, you will drive around and turn into the middle lane of the parking lot and drop your student off by the flagpole and crosswalk. We will have a staff member on crosswalk duty to help them cross to the school.
Just one moment of your time...
We all want our students to have the best opportunities possible, so this is a great way to jump in and help out, simply by grocery shopping. We would really appreciate each and every one of you taking the few minutes it takes to sign up. Please share with other friends and family members to really incorporate our community.
It is a brief and rather straightforward process that can make
such a huge difference in the lives of our 1000+ students.
