This number is for NON-EMERGENCY calls. If you have an emergency, call 911. 
In an ongoing effort to promote a safe learning environment, the district is providing the community with an anonymous tip line phone number. The purpose of the tip line is to allow the community the ability to share information anonymously regarding issues that may put others’ safety in danger.  Community members can report information about drugs, weapons, alcohol, violence or any threat to safety.  While this can be done anonymously, the more information given (including one’s name), the greater the ability the district has to do a complete investigation and resolve the situation quickly.

HMS Update

HMS Update

We wanted to provide you with an update on HMS. The majority of the remediation and air duct cleaning in the kitchen and cafeteria should be completed by Monday. While the company is here, they will work on a few classrooms where the bulkheads have had water damage. If there could be any mold due to the water damage, these areas will be remediated and cleaned. In addition, they will clean the LGI area as well, due to some suspected mold growth. We will continue to have air quality tests, as needed, to ensure the levels are within EPA Guidelines. Below is the air quality report we have received. Again, we thank you for your continued support as we make proactive decisions to ensure the health and safety of our students and staff.

Welcome - 2018 - 19 - PO
We invite all parents to join our Parent Organization at HMS. We will hold monthly meetings. The first meeting will be on Friday, September 7th at 11:00 a.m. We hope to see you there!
Supply Lists

Supply Lists for students in grades 5 and 6 are posted below. The supply lists are teacher specific, so you will need to know your child's Homeroom placement. These Homeroom placements will be available online on SKYWARD after August 6th. There were a few teacher changes during the day on Monday, but as of 6:30 p.m. on August 6th, all 5th grade Homeroom teacher names should be accurate. For students in Homeroom 406, your Homeroom teacher's name is Mrs. Hanna. 
 
Because students in grades 7 and 8 have multiple teachers, there are no supply lists before school begins. The teachers will let the students know once school begins what materials would be beneficial for them. For students in Homeroom 408, your Homeroom teacher's name is Mr. Egger. 
 
How To Print Report Cards from Skyward
When report cards are posted to the SKYWARD Family Access Portal, please follow the direction sheet attached for how to view and print document.
 
Highland Volunteers
Would you be willing to help the HMS PTO this year or would you like to receive emails with minutes from our PTO Meetings? If so, please fill out the Volunteer Form and have your child turn it in to his/her Homeroom teacher. The students will be given a hard copy of this form in school this week to bring home.
Additionally, there is a new form we ask all volunteers to complete, called the Volunteer Confidentially Form. If you are volunteering in any school, please complete this form and bring it to the office of that school. We will also make a copy of your driver's license and we will attach this copy to the form in our files.
Thank you for all that you do!
