Weekly Announcements - Week of 4/12/21

COVID-19

As we continue to navigate through COVID-19 pandemic, parents, we need your assistance with ensuring safety for all of HMS faculty, staff and students. If someone in your home has tested positive for COVID-19, please contact our main office and follow the quarantine guidelines by keeping your child at home. If your child has been tested for COVID-19 and is awaiting results, please keep your child at home until results have been provided. Also parents, if you have been contacted by the school regarding your child being exposed, please adhere to the quarantine guidelines. If you have any specific questions, please contact our school’s nurse, Nurse Morris.

**We will continue to require masks for all students, faculty, staff, and visitors until the end of the 2020-2021 school year.  This includes traditional school and any other school-sponsored events such as graduation ceremonies.  

Change in Learning Option

Parents, you cannot change the learning option of your child without receiving permission to do so. If you have questions regarding your learning option, please contact Mrs. Davis in the main office. 

 

Morning Drop Off

Parents, the front entrance is NOT a morning drop off location. Students who are dropped off at the front entrance prior to 7:55AM will be redirected to the side of the building. Thank you for your assistance. 

 

ACAP Testing

We will facilitate ACAP Testing this week for traditional and remote students April 13th-16th. Only students who are testing will report to campus on their assigned days. Students who have completed testing will work on asynchronous learning activities. Students will be allowed to check out after testing. Parents, we will notify you via Schoolcast when testing is completed each day. Once testing begins, students will not be allowed to check-in or out. The testing schedule is below. I have attached the list of students (traditional and remote) who need to report to campus for testing.
