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.
2nd Nine Weeks Report Cards will be distributed Tuesday, January 10th via PowerSchool. Students who received less than 60% for any core subject will be eligible to participate in grade recovery. The timeline for grade recovery is January 11th-20th. Teachers will be communicating with eligible students the requirements for grade recovery. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. May. Parents, we will adhere to the deadline of January 20th. No exceptions.
Parents, I will be mailing letters to you if your child has nine or more absences from school. We are held accountable for chronic absenteeism. Chronic absenteeism negatively impacts our A-F report card grade. If students are not at school, they are not able to learn. Chronic absenteeism includes parent excuses and doctor’s excuses. These letters are for notification purposes only. I will be mailing these letters every quarter.. Please assist me by bringing your child to school. Attendance matters.
