DONNA BURKE - NEW BUMPUS MIDDLE SCHOOL PRINCIPAL


This morning the Hoover Board of Education approved me to be the new principal at Bumpus. I am so honored to be named principal of such an amazing school in Hoover. I am so proud to have the opportunity to be a leader in a school that has such passionate teachers and staff members that will do anything to help our students succeed. I am also so excited to meet all of our parents and guardians in our community. I am a true believer that it takes a village to raise every child. It is so important for our teachers and parents to work together so our children are successful in school. Below you will find the link from the Hoover Sun article which shares more about my background in education and in the Hoover community.

New School Information System update:

The entire state of Alabama is changing from INOW to POWERSCHOOL. With that change comes some challenges. We have not been able to create schedules in POWERSCHOOL for our students that are new to Hoover. For that reason BUCS Day for new students to Hoover will be on August 3rd from 4:30-6:30pm. If we can get your schedules done prior to that, then we will mail or email them. If not then you will pick them up that day.

STUDENT SCHEDULES

We mailed schedules on Friday July 23rd. Unfortunately we were not able to mail schedules to our new students, transfer students and some other students with unique circumstances. We plan to have these schedules completed by August 3rd.


In addition, some students did not receive schedules because they need to complete HCS online registration, need to bring in a copy of a valid lease & current utility bill, need to update immunizations in the nurse's office or have outstanding balance on school fees and/or library books.


You may email cstone@hoover.k12.al.us or drop off required documents between 9:00am - 2:00pm Monday- Thursday. Upon completion, you will receive your students's welcome packet.

SNAPCODES - ONLINE REGISTRATION

We have approximately 125 students who have not completed or started their child's online registration process. If you have NOT completed your online registration your child will not receive their schedule. Snapcodes and online registration information have been emailed to you. Please email Carol Stone @ cstone@hoover.k12.al.us.if you are having problems. Students with expired leases were put on hold. When we receive your updated lease and utility bill, we will take you off hold and email you your information.

Please check your spam and junk email if you did not receive it in your inbox.
