Hall Happenings

February 2023

Hello Hall Families!

We are six weeks away from the first day of Spring. I can’t wait for warmer weather. As we move through the second semester, please remember the importance of attendance. Did you know that by 6th grade, absenteeism is one of three signs that a student may drop out of high school? In addition, by 9th grade, attendance is a better predictor of graduation rates than 8th grade test scores. In other words, attendance is crucial to the success of every student. Besides, we love to see your child! Please send your kids to school everyday!

Principal: Stephanie Wynne

Assistant Principal: Justin Hooten

Assistant Principal: Annie Pinion

Dean of Instruction: Marilisa Moore

PBIS Rewards

We are excited to roll out our PBIS Rewards program at HMS. This is a program every single Roo at HMS can participate in! In short, PBIS is a rewards program that will help us notice the positive behavior that is happening in our classrooms and hallways every day.

This is how it works:

A kid does something AWESOME related to our four focus areas:

  • Responsibility
  • Honesty
  • Kindness
  • Respect

A staff member will recognize the positive behavior and scan a personal QR code that will be placed on the back of the student ID badge. The QR code will allow the staff member to add points to the student's individual account. Students can spend their points on rewards. The "cost" of each reward will be different.

Some rewards include (but are not limited to):

  • hat pass
  • eat lunch outside
  • eat lunch with a principal/counselor/SRO
  • office or library helper
  • cafe fast pass
  • pajama pant pass
  • choose your seat for the day
  • choose your seat for the six-weeks

*Remember, if your child needs a new badge, you can click the button below to order a replacement.

We know that the PBIS Reward system will help focus on and increase the amount of positive behavior we are already seeing across the campus.

For more information, please see the links below.

If, after reading more about it, you decide this is NOT something you want your child to be part of, please call or email Mrs. Moore. mmoore@weatherfordisd.com

From the Nurses' Clinic

Kanga Care- Telemedicine

Please see the attached flyers on Kanga Care FAQs and instructions on how to enroll your student for Kanga Care. Remember, sign up for Kanga Care now if you would like your student to be tested or seen by our PCHD doctor at any point during the school year.


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.

We are here for you if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for helping keep our students healthy and safe!

Attendance is critical to your child’s success at HMS. Research shows that students who are present each day in school have higher success rates. Please make every effort to get your child to school each and every day. Contact our attendance clerk if your student must miss a day of school. If your child is sick at home or sees a doctor, please turn in a written note to the front office when they return to school. Notes will be accepted up to 10 days after the absence.

*Attendance at the secondary school level is taken every class period and students are held accountable for attending each individual class.

Bus Riders

Parents can request bus services for their student through WISD Transportation. See the WISD webpage or call the Transportation Department at 817-598-2976.
