I know that many of you are excited for the start of the new school year and have many questions.
1. When does the HMS school office open up for regular business?
The HMS office opens up on Monday, August 4th at 8:00 a.m. and closes at 4:00 p.m. Regular office hours begin on Tuesday, August 5th-- 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday-Friday.
2. When do I find out who my child has for a homeroom teacher this year?
HMS will mail home letters the week of August 11th detailing who your child's homeroom teacher is for this school year. NOTE: If you have moved, please call the office and let us know your correct mailing address.
3. I am on your waiting list and want to know when I find out if my child can enroll in school at Hickman.
As we get information about our upcoming enrollment numbers for 2014-2015 (students that have moved into the district, students that have enrolled in other schools), we will then be able to make the calls to students on our waiting lists. We try very hard to make calls before the start of school; however, in some instances, we can not make a decision about a particular grade level's enrollment until after the start of school.
4. How do I find out about important dates and events at the school?
Please visit the district website at http://www.hickmanschools.org and click on Hickman Middle School under the "Schools" tab. You can view the "Week at a Glance" on the right hand side of the webpage or you can click on the "School Calendar" tab at the top of the page. HES also sends home a monthly newsletter via email, so make sure we have your updated email on file.
5. When is JumpStart and can I still enroll my child in it?
JumpStart occurs on August 5th-7th from 8:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m. This in an opportunity for any student that is new to HMS (6th-8th grades) to come and meet some of the teachers and learn about the ins and outs of HMS. Please call the HMS office at 209-556-6540 to enroll your student.
