HBMS Family Member in Need
Throughout this school year, one of our family members has been managing one of the most difficult times of her life. Last summer, Special Education teacher, Tonya Henderson, was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Shortly after Ms. Henderson's diagnosis, her mother suddenly passed away. Ms. Henderson was faced with the reality of the sudden loss of her mother, caring for her sons, and battling cancer, all at the same time.
The road to recovery is a long one. However, our strong, courageous Ms. Henderson has been a warrior throughout this experience. She has undergone chemotherapy for many months and still found a way to be here at school with her students. Right before Spring Break, Ms. Henderson underwent surgery and is currently at home recovering.
As you can imagine, the struggle extends beyond health and bleeds into finances. If you are interested in reading more about Ms. Henderson and providing assistance, please visit http://www.gofundme.com/7Ojnss to make a donation. On behalf of the Haynes Bridge family, we appreciate any support that anyone is able to provide.
Please keep Ms. Henderson and her family in your thoughts during this difficult time. Thank you.
Early Dismissal Policy/Procedure
Parents, just a gentle reminder that all doctor/dentist and other appointments should be scheduled for before of after school hours. We understand that at times there is a need for appointments to be made during instruction time. During these emergencies the following procedures are important for both the safety of our students and staff and for minimal disruption of instruction time:
-Please write a note to the attendance office requesting your child to be dismissed at a particular time. The note should include the date, time and reason for early dismissal.
-Have your child bring the note to the office prior to the beginning of school so that we may take the steps necessary to have your child at the office and ready for you to pick up.
Thank you for your assistance in this matter. These easy steps will help to make early dismissal run smoothly for both you and the school. Remember no students should be checked out after 3:45pm. Any questions, please contact the Front Office.
HAC ID's are available in the front office . You will need your driver's license to pick up your ID.
Please be advised that HAC end-users are now able to send an email concerning HAC concerns to the following email adress: HACSuggestions@fultonschools.org.
