Weekly Announcements - Week of October 12th

Hello Hueytown Middle School Community,

The Vision of Hueytown Middle School is to effectively provide for the diverse needs of all learners on their JEFCOED Journey

 

HMS Core Beliefs

  •  WE are ACCOUNTABLE

  • WE LEARN from our mistakes

  • WE are ALL IN 

 and WE PROTECT THE PAW!


 Remote Learning

*Parents, as a reminder, you are not allowed to participate in direct instruction, via WebEx. This includes being on the camera and/or making comments in the chat box. If you have questions, please contact your child’s teacher. 

 

Attendance

*Parents, we will be closely monitoring attendance of our remote and traditional learners based upon the survey feedback. Parents, if you selected for your child to be a traditional learner and the student is not coming to school, it will be marked as an unexcused absence. Also parents, if you selected for your child to be a remote learner and he/she is not logging in, they will be marked as an unexcused absence. We will begin monitoring for truancy for unexcused absences. If you have a question regarding attendance, please contact our main office.
