Students can receive SOAR cards at HVMS by meeting our school-wide expectations of being safe, organized, accountable, and respectful.

The following students have received SOAR cards since our last newsletter:
7th Grade:Tristan Crossley
We ask that parents and students direct their technical support requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. This email account is intended to serve our students who are either online only or off campus when the request is sent. Students attending school should notify their teachers of any technical issues so that we may resolve those problems at school.
Please keep in mind that our IT support staff works regular school hours and that requests made after hours or during the weekend will not be addressed until those hours of operation.
