30th Annual BIONIC Night is March 2

The 30th Annual HMS BIONIC Night is set for March 2 and is intended to tell our HMS students "Believe it or not, I care!" with programming that focuses on drug use prevention, healthy lifestyle choices and safety. It's also a great chance for your student to make memories with their fellow classmates.

The evening is split into two parts: Part 1 is a teacher-lead rotation through guest speakers focusing on healthy lifestyle choices and Part 2 is an open carnival and dance. Simultaneous to Part 2 will be a parent session focusing on drug trends and parenting teens under stress. This special session will take place from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. in the HMS Media Center.

How Parents Can Help:

  • Encourage your child to attend. Registration has been extended through Tuesday, Febraury 20. The registration form is available HERE.
  • Sign up to donate food or money towards food. See form HERE.

Winter Weather & When It's Necessary to Close School

We understand that the decision to open or close schools, offer a two-hour delayed start, or resort to an early release in bad weather has an enormous effect on all of our families. The following information may help you to better understand the process we use when making these types of decisions, which are based upon a careful analysis of all relevant factors, such as:

  • Information on road conditions from transportation staff, local law enforcement and road crews (as warranted); we must give careful consideration to the most dangerous roads in the District; they can be treacherous, even if your road or street looks clear.
