HMS Teacher & Staff Appreciation Week
Thank you for making a difference...
In appreciation of our teachers and staff at Hopewell Middle School, we will be celebrating Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week May 9-13. In order to enhance the experience that we have planned for that week, we are in need of donations. Please consider donating to show our teachers and staff that they are an essential element in the HMS community.

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.
