We just wanted to send out a reminder about testing at HMS. We often have questions from parents about students "never bringing home homework." Students should have a form of homework at least every night from Monday night through Thursday night. Every week, we follow the attached testing schedule, school wide. So for every grade level, students are assessing four days per week (Tuesday through Friday). Your student should be bringing home daily the notes and information to study for the test they will have the following day. We encourage and remind our students every day to take what they need home with them to study so they will not be on the class's MASH list, requiring a remediation session and retesting . Help support your student by reinforcing this at home and making sure they have appropriate study time!!

Please take a moment to share your opinion on ESSER 3.0 funding within the district.
about 2 months ago, District Web Manager
In response to COVID-19 and its potential impact on student learning, the American Rescue Plan Act (ARP) was signed into law by the federal government on March 11, 2021, and provided approximately $122 billion for the Elementary and Secondary School Relief Fund (ESSER).  As part of the ESSER 3.0 Grant Funding, Roane County Schools will be receiving approximately 13.2 million dollars from 2021 - 2024.  Our district is currently updating our plan to ensure the best use of the allocated funds.  We value the opinions of our stakeholders and seek your input as we plan the most beneficial use of ESSER  funds.  Your time and input are greatly appreciated as we make the best decisions for Roane County Schools.
