Welcome to Hall Middle School
We are off to a great start for the 2021-2022 school year! Students and teachers have been collaborating to create a positive working environment at Hall MS through relationship building activities and classroom relationship agreements. Last week we started our academic focus as well and students are impressing us daily with their work ethic and commitment to success. We have no doubts that academic achievement at HMS will continue to soar as we move from a B to an A campus. It's going to be a great year!

Student ID Badges
Badges will be used at all campuses district wide and students are required to wear them every day throughout the school day.
- ID badges can be used to check out library books, scan for lunches, and are required for students to scan onto and off of buses (before/after school, field trips, athletic events).
- Students will receive a new ID card each school year. While every student's first ID card is provided at no cost, the district will maintain the policy of a $5 replacement fee to be charged for any damaged or lost cards. The replacement fees will start on September 6th.
- Badges should not be altered in any way.
- Students were provided a district issued lanyard, however students are permitted to bring their own lanyard if they choose. Lanyards must adhere to dress code standards.
Thank you and we appreciate your assistance in helping your child keep track of their badge!
Please join PTA to support our school!

If you would like your student to have medication available to them on campus, an adult MUST be the person to drop off medication in order to sign the correct forms. Students are NOT permitted to carry medication on them unless they have a doctor’s note filed in the clinic stating otherwise. This includes prescription and over the counter medication.
In regards to COVID, please refer to the WISD FAQ link below. There you will find multiple links to CDC, TEA and UIL websites supporting our FAQ. If your student tests positive for COVID please contact the nurses' clinic or attendance clerk and we will guide you through the process.
