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.
