Dear Families,

I hope that you are all doing well and staying healthy.  I wanted to take a moment to update you on a few items. 


Memory Books:  At this time, we are still waiting for our Memory Books to be delivered.  As a result of COVID, the company that publishes our Memory Books, is experiencing significant delays.  We have been assured that our Memory Books are still be produced and will be delivered to us as soon as possible.  Please know, that once we receive the Memory Books, we will set up a time to safely distribute them in the MHMS parking lot. 

Additionally, if you purchased spring pictures, and missed the distribution that we did early in the summer, we will also have those available to distribute, when we distribute Memory Books.  I thank you for your patience, during these unprecedented times.

Updated Address Information Needed:  As we are preparing for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year, it is imperative that we have accurate addresses on file for all of our students.  If you have moved, and have not provided us with your updated information, we ask that you email the following documents to our Student Services Secretary, Ms. Ganzermiller, at

  • A completed a change of address form- FILLABLE_Change_of_Address.pdf 
  • A copy of your new lease or deed
  • A copy of a current utility bill with your new address

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to reach out to me or to Ms. Ganzermiller.

Student Schedules:  We have received inquiries regarding accessing student schedules, please know that families will have access to student schedules sometime during the week of September 1st, as we get closer to September 8th, the first day of school.

Important Websites:  Please be sure to visit the MHMS Website frequently for updates-  Also, frequently visit the HCPSS website, for updated information at  If you have not already reviewed the latest post on the HCPSS website, regarding our school system re-opening plan, please see it here-


Again I hope that you are all enjoying your summer safely, and we are looking forward to an outstanding 2020-2021 school year.
