Important Back-to-School Information
HMS Information Day will take place on Wednesday, August 3rd. 6th grade families should attend from 9-11, and 7th and 8th grade families from 3-5. If you are a new 7th or 8th grader, you may want to attend the new student/parent session from 2-3 on Information Day as well (6th graders will have Orientation on the first day of school).

HMS is open in the Summer. Office hours will
be Monday-Thursday from 9-3 and Fridays 9-12. Please know that many of
our staff members are off for the summer, and we also have trainings throughout
the summer (and some vacation time to use!), so before you come in, you may
want to call (470-254-3240) or email to be sure the person you need is available.
Student Registration for 2016-2017 School Year
During the summer, please call Hopewell's front office at 470-254-3240, in order to schedule an appointment to complete registration. Registration is available by appointment only. We will not be taking walk-in registrations. You must print and complete all the necessary paperwork (which is located under Registration and Forms) prior to your appointment.
If you have a rising 6th grader coming from a Feeder School that is zoned for our school, there is NO need to register your student. You will need to fulfill the residency verification requirement (see below).

Planning to travel? Check this first
If you are planning to travel during the school year, please review your child's attendance record first. Fulton County Schools' attendance policy can be found online at www.hopewellmustangs.net under Parents, 2015-2016 Handbook and on page 6 in your child's agenda. Please note that in order to have any planned absence considered approved, a letter from the parent must be submitted to the assistant principal PRIOR (3 to 5 days) to the planned absence. Approved absences are limited to six (6) per year. The absence may or may not be approved. As well, if your child has missed 10 or more total days of school this year, you may be asked to provide medical notes for additional absences to be considered excused (in accordance with Fulton County's attendance policy). Please reconsider scheduling your family travel/vacation time to coincide with school breaks and avoid missed class time whenever possible.
Thank you for your assistance in keeping your student in class for instruction.
