Hall Happenings

March 2023

Hello Hall Families!

Parenting middle school students can be rewarding and challenging at the same time. Here are some tips for helping your child be successful during the middle school years and beyond.

  • Take school attendance seriously. It’s important that students arrive at school on time every day. Catching up after an absence or tardy can be stressful and can interfere with new learning.
  • Make time to talk about school. While school activities, new interests, and friends can become central in a middle schooler’s life, parents/guardians are still their main source of love, guidance, and support.
  • Instill organizational skills. Organizational skills have to be learned and practiced. Students who are well-organized have more success in juggling multiple teachers, subjects, and extra-curricular activities.
  • Send your child to school ready to learn. The right amount of sleep (10-12 hours each night) and a nutritious breakfast can help boost a child’s attention, concentration, and memory.

PBIS Rewards

Our PBIS Rewards program is up and running 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 award points to the student's PBIS account. Students can spend their points on rewards. The "cost" of each reward varies.

Some rewards include (but are not limited to):

  • hat pass
  • eat lunch outside
  • eat lunch with a principal/counselor/SRO
  • office or library helper
  • cafeteria fast pass
  • pajama pant pass
  • choose your seat for the day
  • choose your seat for the six-weeks
  • off campus lunch (20 pts and student brings money to pay for lunch)

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.
