Dear Families: Your student will be bringing home state assessment results today if he/she took the WV General Summative Assessment: grades 3-8, the WV Alternate Student Assessment: grades 3-8, or the SAT School Day exam for grade 11 last spring. In addition, you and your student will also be receiving an email with a link to a video score report for WVGSA or WV SAT only. The video link is being sent to the student email account and the parent email on file with your student. Please have your student check the student email account to find the link. Simply copy the link into your web browser and use your student’s birthdate to open the video score report. If you enter the birthdate incorrectly three times, the account will be locked. If you do not receive printed score reports OR if you have difficulty opening the video report, please contact the school for assistance. You may also call the school if you need assistance in interpreting your student's score report. Thank you and have a great day!

Hello, If you need to pick your child up early from school, please do so by 3:05. It is extremely difficult to gather students from class after that time for early release.
Hello, Please make sure your student is following the county dress code. The dress code can be found in your child's planner. Those who cannot follow the dress code will be calling home for a change of clothes. While current fashion is nice it does not always meet the dress code for school. Thank you for your help.

We are pleased to inform you that students who took the West Virginia General Summative Assessment or SAT School Day in spring 2021 will receive an email at their K12 student email account on December 10, 2021, containing a link to an individual student video score report. Parents with emails on file with the school will also receive the link to the video score report. Although students received their printed score reports earlier this school year, the West Virginia Department of Education is piloting exciting new video score reports designed to be more engaging for students and their parents or guardians. Please have your student check his or her email account for the link, and parents and guardians should also check to see if it has been received. Simply copy and paste the link into your web browser and enter the student's date of birth to access the video score report customized specifically for the student.

Hurricane Middle Message – Friday, October 1, 2021 Due to an increased number of COVID-19 positive students at Hurricane Middle we would like to remind our students and families to continue following COVID-19 prevention strategies and daily best health practices, including: · Frequent and proper handwashing, · Daily monitoring/student health screenings by families for possible COVID-19 signs and symptoms. If symptoms are present, do not send your child to school. · Social distancing to the greatest extent possible, and · The use of face coverings or masks in public indoor settings as outlined in the PCS Roadmap to Recovery as recommended by the CDC, state and local health officials. COVID-19 prevention strategies remain critical to helping protect people, including students, teachers, and staff, who are not fully vaccinated, especially in areas of moderate-to-high community transmission levels.
Next week is Hurricane High’s Homecoming, NOT ours. Our homecoming will be in October. There are NO dress-up days for us next week. HMS students are also NOT welcome at the high school daytime festivities. HMS students are welcome to attend the ballgame Friday night.
