School Governance Council Elections

Holcomb Bridge Middle School will be electing representatives to serve on the School Governance Council.  We will be electing parent/guardian positions and teacher positions for our spring election.  Our School Governance Council has a leadership role in the governance of the school. The Council works with the principal in setting the long-term vision and strategy for the school. They are responsible for approving the school's strategic plan and budget recommendations, as well as designing innovative solutions to increase academic achievement and meet the unique needs of our school community.

Elections for the parent/guardian and teacher positions on the School Governance Council will be held March 11th – March 18th. Candidates interested in running for an elected position on the Council must complete a candidate declaration form and submit by February 20th   

Candidate forms may be submitted electronically or by mail (get a copy of the form from the school's front office and follow mailing instructions on the back of the form).  HBMS SGC main page

 HBMS Visitor, Volunteer, and

Check out Procedures

We pride ourselves on being friendly and welcoming to everyone who enters our building. But, as much as we try to personally know every person, we have hundreds of students with hundreds of family members. This means we may not always recognize every person who visits our school, so please be patient and understanding if it takes a little more time to determine who you are. Our goal is to account for all visitors/volunteers in our building so that we can maximize safety for students and staff.

  1. All parents/visitors/volunteers must report to the office upon arrival.
  2. Be prepared to show your photo ID.
  3. Parents/visitors/volunteers must be issued a badge from the office prior to entering any location in the building.
  4. Only the persons listed as "Guardian" can check out a student from school. Emergency contacts or other non-guardians will only be allowed to check out for a true emergency OR with specific consent from a guardian.

Thank you for helping us continue the safe environment we have worked hard to maintain!


Procedimientos de HBMS para Visitantes, Voluntarios y Retiro de Alumnos durante Horas de Clase

Nos enorgullecemos de ser amables y acogedores con todas las personas que entran en nuestro edificio. Por mucho que tratemos de conocer personalmente a cada persona, recuerde que tenemos cientos de estudiantes con cientos más familiares. Esto significa que es posible que no siempre reconozcamos a todas las personas que vienen a nuestra escuela, así que sea paciente y comprenda que puede tomnosar  más tiempo para determinar quién es usted. Nuestro objetivo es saber quiénes son los visitantes / voluntarios que están en nuestro edificio para que podamos maximizar la seguridad para los estudiantes y el personal.

1. Todos los padres / visitantes / voluntarios deben presentarse en la oficina al llegar.

2. Esté preparado para mostrar su identificación con foto.

3. Los padres / visitantes / voluntarios deben recibir una identificación de la oficina antes de ingresar a cualquier ubicación del edificio.

4. Solo las personas que figuran como "guardián" pueden retirar a un estudiante de la escuela. Los contactos de emergencia u otros que no sean representantes legales solo podrán retirar alumnos en caso de una verdadera emergencia o con el consentimiento específico del guardián.

¡Gracias por ayudarnos a mantener un entorno seguro en la escuela ya que hemos trabajado arduamente para mantenerlo!

HOME ACCESS CENTER (HAC)

When you are viewing grades in the Home Access Center, please pay attention to the drop down window that allows you to choose which "run" you would like to view. Please be sure to select "All Runs" if you want to see the average for the semester. If you choose "1" or "2," it will only calculate the grade for that grading period. Since grades for non-Connections courses are calculated by semester, not quarter, "All Runs" will give you the correct average.collage.png
