Was so great to have some sun this weekend. And the week has rain and warmer weather so hopefully the white stuff and ice will begin to go away. Here is what’s coming up This Week At HDSMS: January 16th.

Information To Share:

LSS Assembly: The Admin team form LSS will be here Thursday, January 19th to meet with our grade 7s and 8s. We will have the grade 7s in the gym during block 2 and the grade 8s during block 3.

Student Cell Phone Use: As we begin the new year, we will be tightening up our expectations regarding student cell phone use. You can access our expectations by clicking here. Moving forward, students are not to have their phones out inside the school unless specifically directed by a staff member. Students will need to either leave their phones at home, keep them in their lockers or follow the expectations of teacher’s collecting phones in class. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact administration.
