Wednesday March 23rd, 8th grade students last name I-N had an opportunity to meet with Mrs Smith for Course Advising! This Friday students will register for their Freshman classes during their RTI period with their homerooms. Any student who does not have an opportunity to register for classes will register with Mrs. Roy the week of March 28th. I wanted to say THANK YOU to our 8th grade students for showing respect and maturity towards our High School Counselors with the academic advising process. Way to go class of 2026!
HMS is enjoying another week of zero positive pools and no current active cases! Have a great weekend!
Course Advising has gone well so far! Yesterday Ms. Barry came in to meet with students last names A-H. Today's course advising for last names I-N has been rescheduled for Wednesday March 23rd. Tomorrows course advising will be with Mrs. Walsh for last names O - Z. We will keep you posted about when the official registration date will be. This will happen during homeroom sometime next week. Please email Lisa Roy if you have any questions!
No positive pools this week (3/7-3/11) at HMS! Have a great weekend!
After another busy week of pool testing we currently sit at 10 active student cases and no staff cases! Have a great three day weekend!
Due to the predicted temperature and wind chill advisory, pick-up today we will be conducted like a heavy rain day. Students will be dismissed from the music room a few at a time as their parents/guardian get close to the door. Please anticipate a slightly longer wait time as a result. Thank you.
The ski program is back for another year (starts January 14th). Please see our documents page for permission slip information or stop by the main office for permission slips!
We have launched the parent teacher conference portal. Please follow the link to sign up for a conference. Conferences are on November 9th and November 17th from 4:00-7:30 p.m., and November 22nd from 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. Please go to news, read the letter and follow the link to sign up. Thank you!
Good afternoon. In an effort to make parent drop off safer for students in the morning, we will be sending parent traffic around the building and dropping off at the music room door. We ask that parents drop off at cones 6, 5, & 4 (similar to parent pickup). This should spread parents out along the loop and keep students from crossing moving traffic in the morning.
Per our statement last week, close contact status for our students concludes this weekend and students can return to school Monday September 20th! We can't wait!
We will post the bell times and period schedule tomorrow afternoon (Friday). Students who did not receive a laptop due to being absent can pick theirs up tomorrow (Friday) between 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. in the main office. Students who are quarantined can have a parent or guardian come in to get the device.
There will be no middle school sports (games or practices) tomorrow or next week during remote. We are attempting to reschedule accordingly. Thank you
We are currently preparing for remote learning. We will post student schedules (expectations for logging in) by grade level on the website. Many of these expectations will also be shared in homeroom and grade level meetings today. I will continue to post information under our "NEWS" section (for example, laptop pick up times for those who did not get one etc.). Thank you very much for your patience and understanding.
There will be an open house for NEW students (incoming 5th graders and new transfer students) on August 25th from 5:30-7:00. This is an informal event so parents and students can come and leave at any point in the evening. Thank you!
The 8th grade closing ceremony has been moved outside to Pottle Field. Students will sit on the field and parents and guests can utilize the grandstand or bring their own chair to sit around the grandstand. The time is the same, 6:30. Since we will be outside (forecast is around 85 degrees) there will be no ticket requirements.
8th grade students (except baseball and softball) will need to be picked up at HHS tomorrow at the end of the day 2:10. 8th graders will be leaving HMS around 1:10 to watch a show choir performances in the HHS auditorium. 8th graders riding buses at the end of the day will be able to board their bus at HHS as usual.
The parking lot will be closed this afternoon (5/28) until two o'clock. Parents and Guardians please do not come until after two as we will be "Hiking for Haiti" around the building. Thank you
