Be on the Lookout:
EMMS Staff will be reaching out to all students prior to the start of the school year. This might be part of teachers’ small 6th grade orientation group, as a mentor, or just a staff member checking in, as all students are our students. If you see a blocked caller or a strange area code, it may be our staff calling to say hello and to wish them well on a successful school year.  
Material Distribution:
Please note that we are sending distribution information directly to families who qualify.
Schedules are set to be released tomorrow. I want to caution families that our Student Services Department is still in the process of making course placements and balancing sections due to the social distancing guidelines and transportation requirements for second semester. Please note that schedules are subject to change. Please be mindful of this as you look at schedules. The only reason for a schedule change would be due to a course request error or a course level change. Thank you for your flexibility and patience. 
Does your child need a Chromebook?: 
Middle School families who need a Chromebook for their student must request one if you have not done so already. Read More
Family File Update Reminder: 
Every year HCPSS parents must complete a Family File for each child. HCPSS utilizes Family File for parents/guardians to complete emergency information. Read More
