Back-to-School Night at HMS for grade 7 is Tuesday, September 13th and for grade 8 is Tuesday, September 20th. The programs will start at 6:30 p.m. with a brief introduction in the main cafeteria with Dr. Trybulski, HMS Principal. Following that, all parents will report to homeroom at 7:00 p.m. Be sure to check with your child prior to the event to confirm the location of his or her homeroom or refer to your child’s schedule on-line via Genesis. Homeroom teachers will have a print copy of your child’s schedule and a school map for you when you arrive. At the conclusion of homeroom, parents will follow their child’s schedule for 10 minute classes and 3 minutes passing time (just like the kids). Wear comfortable shoes.
The library/commons hallway will be open during the lunch/study periods for refreshments and to meet representatives from the HMS Home & School Association, school administration & counselors, and the Hillsborough Education Association. Raider Wear and other items will be available for purchase as well.
PARKING will be tight. I encourage you to arrive early and to take advantage of additional parking in the lot at Triangle Elementary School on South Triangle Road. There is a lighted paved path that leads from Triangle Elementary to the rear entrances of HMS where the cafeteria is located. This is a short walk on a pleasant evening and can make arrival/departure much easier.
We have an enjoyable and informative evening planned, and we are looking forward to meeting you.
