The HMS Family Digest


Lots of love and growth!

Parents and students, Happy President's Day! We hope you had a great long weekend. Last week was so much fun as we acknowledged academic growth, hosted HHS' CTE students, Leadership Cheatham County, and spread lots of love! We anticipate an awesome week with tons of learning and opportunities to grow more. Please contact us with any issues or concerns. As always, we are in your corner.

Happy President's Day!

Love, the Wee Little Indians!

It takes a village.

If you are able, we have a few things that have continually popped up on our wish list and we have awesome parents that are always asking what they can do to help us. The following items are always appreciated, thank you!!

Tissues, pencils, expo markers, Lysol wipes and Lysol spray.

Thanks again!

Use Revtrack to get caught up on lunch charges

The best place to pay for EVERYTHING! It's online and you can use your card.

Emails are sent to parents when students have charges of $10 or more. An alternate lunch will be provided for students with charge amounts over $10 to prevent excessive charge amounts. We want all of our students to eat. Don't forget that if your student receives free lunch then they also receive free breakfast.

Reminder to 8th graders: Bring permission slips for upcoming field trips

We have a request for the sake of consistency that our students and parents would use the school phone for communication during the day instead of texting. We understand that emergencies arise during the day, but students are supposed to have their phones off unless the teacher gives them permission. We want to keep the communication open, we just ask that we all stay on the same page with using the school phone. Thank you.

Appropriate attire-

If leggings are worn, please make sure the shirt covers the students' backside.

If jeans have holes in them please make sure they are below the mid thigh area.

Please make sure your student is in the boundaries of the dress code before they leave the house. We appreciate your efforts in helping our students look appropriate, comfortable, and ready for school.
