Dear MHMS Families,
We are excited about Back to School Night this evening. I wanted to take a moment to share a few reminders.
BTSN Welcome Video!
Our GT Parent Information Session will begin at 5:45 p.m., and it will be offered in-person and virtually, concurrently. If you will be joining us in-person, we will meet in the cafeteria. If you will be joining us virtually, please be sure to use your students' HCPSS login credentials, and use the Google Meet Code: mhms-mdunbar. This presentation is intended for all parents who are interested in learning more about the many options that are associated with the middle school gifted and talented program (not just G.T. level courses).
Our Back-To-School Night program will begin at 6:30 p.m. This program will also be offered in-person and virtually, concurrently. For those who choose to attend in-person, please be reminded that the program is intended for parents, so please make arrangements for your student(s) to stay at home for the evening. When you arrive, you will report directly to your students homeroom classroom, where you will receive a printed copy of their schedule. Families who choose to attend virtually, will do so as a “fly on the wall,” through Google Meet, using your students’ HCPSS credentials. All teachers have posted their Google Meet codes on their Canvas pages (essentially the naming convention is the school initials, dash, first name initial, last name- i.e. mhms-lsmithson). During the evening, you will have the opportunity to visit each of your student’s classes, and teachers will share information regarding their courses and their classroom expectations.
We ask that all parents who are planning to attend our event in-person complete a COVID-19 Self-Screening prior to arriving at MHMS. If you are experiencing any symptoms that would prevent you from attending in person, please join us through the virtual option. Also, if you have been identified as a close contact to someone who tested positive for COVID-19, please plan to join us through the virtual option. Finally, please be reminded that appropriate facial coverings are required at all times while in the building.
At this time, the following staff members are unable to attend Back-To-School Night:
Ms. Krieger (her homeroom will be available in-person and virtually Google Code: mhms-skrieger)
Ms. Schaefer (her homeroom will be available in-person and virtually Google Code: mhms-mschaefer)
Ms. Burkey (her homeroom will be available in-person and virtually Google Code: mhms-dburkey)
Ms. Shavers (her homeroom will be available in-person and virtually Google Code: mhms-ashavers)
Ms. Evans (her homeroom will be available in-person and virtually Google Code: mhms-cevans)
Ms. Gwyneth Jones (her homeroom will be available in-person and virtually Google Code: mhms-mdunbar)
Again, we look forward to having you participate in our event this evening.
