Dear HMS Families,

Please note the following information about picking up your child’s school-issued laptop at HMS:

-Our 5th grade students in the fully remote model and hybrid model will pick up their laptops, by appointment only, on September 8 and September 9. The fifth grade team will reach out to parents soon (or you may have heard from them already!) about how this process will work. 

-In an effort to best serve the needs of all of our 6th, 7th and 8th grade students, we have scheduled two opportunities for parents to pick up their laptops. You can come to HMS on Wednesday, September 2, from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm, or Thursday, September 3, from 8:30 am to 2:00 pm.   

-HMS staff members will be set up under the canopy right outside of the band and music rooms. Parents will pull up and share their child’s name(s) so the staff member can bring the laptop to the car. Staff members will be wearing masks. Thank you for wearing a mask during this pick up process. 

-If you are unable to attend either of these pick up times your child(ren) will receive their computers on their first day of school.

Thanks very much,

Joan Adler and Tom McDowell

HMS Administrative team
