The 8th Grade Field Trip will be to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure in Orlando, on Friday, May 13, 2016. This trip is special to 8th graders only; Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure are closing down the park for their trip, which is called Gradventure 2016. Another special aspect of this trip is that the parks are open from 7pm to midnight. Howard students will be getting in earlier at 4pm, so we will be leaving Howard by 2:00p.m. Students must be in school that day in order to go on the trip. Because this is a special and memorable field trip, students must have a 2.0 GPA for Semester 1, and have not had any days of out of school suspension for the whole year, and not any more than 5 days in- school suspension (ISS).

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.
Please click on Carline Reminders to view a copy of the procedures that have been put into place to ensure the safety of all our students and to keep the lines moving as quickly and safely as possible.
Extended Day is a service provided by MCPS's and is available at HMS for before and after school.
