Hello HMS Families,
Please make sure your child gets enough sleep and eats breakfast at home or at school. Also, it is very important for your child to charge their Chromebook every night and bring it to school every day. Please help them out with this. While our middle schoolers are getting older, they still need our help and reminders.
As always, please call the HMS main office with any questions.
Parents, please talk to your children and explain that if they are caught damaging and/or stealing school property, fighting, and inappropriately touching students or staff, they will be suspended and face additional consequences that theft, destruction and assault warrant. Please click here to read more.
The fact is, the overwhelming majority of HMS students are "doing the right things". We are incredibly fortunate for this. We continue to encourage these students to not be by-standers and to report information regarding inappropriate behavior to their parents, teachers and admin.
Also, please make sure your child charges their Chromebook overnight and brings it to school each day.
