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, Natalia Poland, 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 3 days after the absence.

Remember, at the middle school level, attendance is taken every class period and students are held accountable for attending each individual class and being there on time.

Bus Riders

Parents can request bus services for their student through the verification process. Let us know if you will need bus transportation for your children. This information helps us determine the number of students who will be riding a bus to and from school this year and helps us plan the most efficient routes.

IMPORTANT: The deadline to request bus transportation for the first day of school was August 2nd. If your child needs bus transportation on the first day of school, please complete the Google Form by clicking the link below. Requests will be handled on a first come, first served basis.

If you have any questions, please visit the WISD Transportation webpage or call the Transportation Department at 817-598-2976.

The east crosswalk allows students to cross Charles Street. Crossing guards will be on duty from 7:35-8:05 AM and 3:45-4:05 PM every school day.

Cell Phone Policy

We work hard to create positive social interactions within our school community.

We appreciate your support as we help students thrive during their middle school years.
