Horace Mann Happenings

January 18, 2019

Message from the Principal

I am so glad to be back after the break and interacting with the children here at Horace Mann. Our students and teachers are refreshed and ready to get back to learning together again.


Reminder: There is no school on Monday in observance of Martin Luther King Day.


With the projected forecast for today, I wanted to remind families of our Inclement Weather Policy. Horace Mann does not close early for inclement weather. Parents may choose to pick up their child early due to hazardous road conditions. I've copied our full Inclement Weather Policy below. Please feel free to call or stop by the office if you have any further questions.


Inclement Weather Policy Reminder

Horace Mann Laboratory School will be closed due to inclement weather IF the Maryville Public Schools are closed before school begins. Please use your best judgment and there is no penalty to children if they arrive late or leave early when weather conditions exist. Decisions made in the early morning hours or late evening hours will be given to KNIM and KXCV radio stations.


We encourage parents to sign up for the Horace Mann Text Caster; you will receive texts regarding HMLS. Sign up at http://my.textcaster.com/ServePopup.aspx?id=1003


Extended care (K-6) is available for children that are enrolled in after-school childcare BEARCAT CLUB on days Horace Mann is closed for inclement weather. Horace Mann DOES NOT dismiss early (during the school day) for inclement weather. Parents may choose to pick up their child early due to hazardous road conditions. Safety is the top priority. If Northwest is closed, school and child care are also closed.
