From the Nurse!
Looking ahead to next year: New medication orders will be needed for the new school year (at the start of the new school year for all oral medications, inhalers, epi-pens, etc.).
Healthy Sleeping Habits: The start of a new school year means moving from a summer to a school-year routine. Making this transition gradually, beginning a week or two before the start of school, can be beneficial. This transition is also a good time to remember how important getting enough sleep is for students to do their best in school. To help with this, we are providing you with some key recommendations for healthy sleep habits. Thank you for your partnership in your child's education.

Important Traffic Notice
Hello HMS parents, friends, & staff.
At Horizon Middle School we strive to be good neighbors in the community and hope we are leading that example. Along these lines, you may not know that HMS has a crossing guard at the corner of Tower and Hampden, as well as at the light just northeast of the school, for the entrance to our lower parking lot. Over the last four weeks, we have seen an increase in safety concerns in these areas. There have been several instances in which drivers have stopped on the crosswalk, which poses a danger for our pedestrians and the crossing guard as they cross the street.
As it can be hard to see if you are over the crosswalk, your best bet is to stop well behind it. Please understand that if your car is impeding the crosswalk in any way, it forces pedestrians to walk closer to oncoming traffic, which can be dangerous. Thank you for your understanding and support to keep our students safe!
Finally, if you are accessing our lower lot near the fire station we ask that you be mindful and not block their entryway. Our first responders are asking for your help and support in keeping these lanes clear of traffic at all times. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility with this very important issue.
