Attendance Awareness Month


September was Attendance Awareness Month. Parents, I would like to congratulate all of our students who earned perfect attendance for the 1st 20 days of school. I am extremely proud of these students and they will be recognized at our 1st Nine Weeks Awards Ceremony on October 25th. Attendance Matters. Every Student. Every Day.


Student ID Badges/Chromebooks 

All HMS students will/have received an ID badge and chromebook. Parents, students are expected to have their ID badges and chromebooks daily. Per new district guidelines, once a student loses or damages his/her chromebook, a replacement will not be issued. Students will only be allowed to use a chromebook in the classroom. Parents may donate the price of the chromebook for replacement. 



Parents, HMS bullying reporting forms are available with our counselors. When a student notifies a teacher or staff member at HMS regarding bullying, the student will be directed to complete the bullying reporting form and submit it to their assigned counselor.
