From the principal......Questions answered....

  1. 7th grade teams will be coming on Friday. A separate notification will be sent.
  2. Extra school supplies can either be stored in your student's locker, or left at home if your student will remember to bring more when he/she needs them.
  3. There is a link further down this newsletter that will take you to the Hellstern Middle School store - you can purchase your agenda & chromebook insurance if you want it.
  4. I will be sending another update before school starts with all of the "first day/week of school" stuff.

Car Rider Lines Have Changed!

1. Students should be dropped off between 7:30 & 7:45 am.

2. Dismissal begins at 3:15pm.

3. If you have a 7th grader you will pick up on the East side (closest to HarBer High School) of the building.

4. If you have a 6th grader or students in both grades, you will pick up on the West side (closest to Storms' Orthodontics) of the building.

5. PLEASE do not check students out AFTER 2:45pm. If you do, you may get stuck in the parking lot. Buses will be using the front entrance of the building to pick up and drop off students.

6. When you are dropping students & picking up - PLEASE pull forward as far as you can. Students should be READY to get out as soon as you stop your car.

7. Remind your student to wear his/her mask BEFORE exiting the vehicle.

Questions answered from the August 10th newsletter....in case you missed it!


  1. Nurse Amy Coile will be back in the building every day starting Thursday, August 13th. She will be there from 7:45-3:15. If you have a child that takes medication daily and you need to drop something off, we will be ready!
  2. Start practicing with masks! I had a parent share with me this week, that when her child is "on device" he/she has to wear a mask. She was working on getting the student acclimated. I think this is a GREAT idea. I have noticed that my own comfort with a mask has increased greatly as I practice more. I recommend doing this to get ready for August 24th.
  3. Students can bring their supplies on the first day of school. They will be in advisory all day, so there will be plenty of time to organize and get supplies in lockers.
