CoVid- 19 Protocols Revisited

·         We are experiencing an increase in the number of CoVid-19 cases in Greenville County. To make certain we are doing our part to protect ourselves, our loved ones, our community and our school, please report any known exposure or positive CoVid tests to the HMS administration, even if it was at the beginning of our winter break.

·         Students must wear masks at ALL TIMES in the building, unless eating lunch or when social distancing is possible. We will have “mask breaks” throughout the day with fresh air outside.



Thanks to those who have adjusted their drop-off times. With more students in the building and the need to maintain social distancing we would like to ask parents who are dropping students off early in the morning to follow a staggered schedule;


With the full population of students in the building and the need to maintain social distancing, we will be moving to a staggered drop-off schedule in the mornings;

Grade 6:          7:45 am                      

Grade 7:          7:55 am            

Grade 8:          8:05 am


Please do not drop students off before 7:45 am.

Adjusted Pick-Up Routes in the Afternoons

HMS Car riders who are in Mrs. Austin, Mrs. Banks, Mr. Gordon, Ms. Ragan, and Mrs. Skipper’s 6th-period class will dismiss on the 8th-grade side beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, January 19, 2021. This should alleviate the lengthy wait on the Garrison Road side.


Please pick up students in the Stokes Road parking lot (8th grade side of building). This is a right turn only… into and out of parking lot. Questions? Call Mrs. Mulkey, 864-355-6194



Please make sure all chrome books are charged and ready for use tomorrow!

Tomorrow is the beginning of the second semester. We all acknowledge the fact that the first half of this school year has been challenging at best. Attendance plans 1 and 2 required eLearning at home for our students. Many of our students struggled to complete assignments, stay on task, and turn in their work. These challenges contributed to lower than usual grades and participation. As we start the second half of the year we should all be grateful for our return to five days of instruction. We will be offering morning and afternoon tutorial sessions to assist with academic deficits and needs



Spring Sports Tryouts: please note that all student athletes in grade 7 and 8 that would like to tryout for spring sports must have a physical and permission forms prior to the start of tryouts.
