Message to Families:

Our preparations are well under way for the school year, and we can't wait to welcome your students back to campus on Wednesday, August 17! One of our goals is to create a safe and secure, yet warm and inviting climate on our campus. To accomplish this, we will allow parents to walk their children into the school on the first day. To do this safely, all parents will be required to check in at the front office and wear a visitor badge if they plan to enter the building. Thank you for working together with us as we look to safely create opportunities for our students and families. We will see you soon!

Student Safety

Student safety is a top priority in WISD. In order to educate our students about the safety protocols at HMS, we will practice our safety drills Aug. 22-26. A different safety drill will be conducted each day that week. We will continue practicing our safety protocols with drills throughout the year as well.


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. Remember, at the middle school level, attendance is taken every class period and students are held accountable for attending each individual class.
  • This year, our campus goal for attendance is 97%. To reach that goal, each student would have a total of 5 or fewer absences for the school year. Let us know how we can help make this goal a reality for your child.
