Car-rider News!

Tuscany Lots for Residents ONLY

The Tuscany subdivision is private property adjacent to our school grounds. Please do not use this subdivision to drop off or pick up students in order to avoid our car-rider system. We have greatly improved the efficiency of our systems. Please use them! Thanks!!

Please Pull Forward

The reason we are so adamant about pulling forward is to be as efficient as possible during pick-up process. Remember, if you stop in the back of the line and load, you are preventing many cars from loading at one time. Our goal is to be efficient, but also to get our cars off of Har-Ber Ave. as soon as possible. Thank you for your help with this!

Support for blended students

Please remember, when students are at home working, their classroom teachers are busy teaching. Therefore, students that need support when they are working remotely can complete this form. The HMS remote support team will be checking this daily and responding to questions.

We STRONGLY encourage students to complete the daily work ON the day intended, not before.
