Don't forget conferences are this week!

We will be doing conferences virtually this week. Teachers are available to Zoom or talk on the phone Monday, September 21st & Tuesday, September 22nd (3:15-6:15pm). Information went home this past week with your student. Email any teacher to set an appointment or call the school (750-8725) for an appointment.

This weekend, your child should have shared his/her Google presentation with you along with grades. Your student will get credit for doing the conference when you complete the survey in his/her presentation. Be sure and ask!


  1. Please help us out by washing your student's mask after each day he/she wears it. We also want to remind you that disposable masks are only good for one day!
  2. We ONLY have water-bottle filling stations - no fountains. Please remind your child to bring a water bottle EVERY day.
  3. Students must wear their lanyards every day - if you need a replacement the costs are as follows: Plastic ID case - $1, ID - $2, lanyard - $2
  4. Students should charge his/her chromebook EVERY night.

Let's Recap - Students bring FOUR (4) things EVERY day: Lanyard, mask, charged Chromebook, & water bottle.

From the Nurse....

Springdale Schools do not allow a student to EVER have medication on them. If you need your child to have medicine during the day you must give it to Nurse Amy to dispense. Thanks for your help with this!

These are our September Heroes of the Month!!

Support for blended students

Please remember, when students are at home working, their classroom teachers are busy teaching. Therefore, students that need support when they are working remotely can complete this form. The HMS remote support team will be checking this daily and responding to questions.

We STRONGLY encourage students to complete the daily work ON the day intended, not before.

Connect with your team!

Every week, we will post team information through these links. We are doing this to try and simplify communication. So be sure and check here EVERY WEEK!
