Parents, please remind your students that if they come on campus for tutoring or meeting another teacher prior to school beginning they need to arrive at the appropriate time. Students that arrive too early will have to be sent to Extended Day and parents will have to pay. Repeat offenders could be given Lunch Detention for refusing to follow school rules. Students should not come to campus until approximately five minutes before they are to meet their teacher. The front office is not for students to enter for regular school attendance and the campus officially opens for all students at 9:15am. Car riders should exit their vehicles within the carline and walkers should enter through the east side gate (near carline). For the safety of all involved, student and parent cooperation is sincerely appreciated. Extended Day is a service provided by MCPS's and is available at HMS for before and after school.
