Request for Flexibility Proposal Draft - SGC
The Hopewell Middle School Governance Council is in the process of submitting our Request for Flexibility (RFF). The RFF is a necessary step in asking for what Hopewell MS needs to better serve our students. Thank you for taking the time to read the document and provide feedback at the following survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/QYML6Z7. You may also submit written feedback to the Front Office for our council to review. Finally, there will be open Community Forums held on November 19th at 7:30 AM and 4:30 PM at the HMS Media Center.
Copies of the School Strategic Plan can be found on the HMS website. The link to the School Governance Council page is below: http://school.fultonschools.org/ms/hopewell/Pages/HMS-School-Governance-Council.aspx

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.
