CONGRATULATIONS DR. MERKERSON: Craig Merkerson, Ed.D., principal of Millennium at Santa Fe Elementary, has been named an Exemplary New Principal by the Kansas City Suburban Elementary School Association. Dr. Merkerson is one of only 12 principals to be receiving the honor. He was selected for his outstanding performance, both at Millennium and in the community.
ATTENDANCE MATTERS: Attending school is always important, but for school funding, it is especially important on January 31, 2018. Attendance numbers that day will directly affect the amount of funding HMC-1 receives from the state. We ask parents to make sure their child attends school and arrives on time January 31.
WINTER WEATHER HAS ARRIVED! We ask all parents to review HMC-1's protocol for closing or delaying the opening of school due to snow and inclement weather. This is especially important because this year, it includes important information regarding 2-hour late starts. To review our process, where closure/late start information will be posted, and more, read our Inclement Weather Protocol.
Updated bus routes have also been posted. Addresses in parentheses will be where that stop is moved when roads are snowy or icy.
ADMINISTRATION CENTER AT NEW LOCATION: The new year means a new location for HMC-1 administrative staff. Departments previously at 9000 Old Santa Fe Rd (Human Resources, Curriculum & Instruction, Business Office, and Public Information) is now at the new Administration Center, 5401 E. 103rd St. (Baptiste Educational Center). Stop by and see us!
DISTRICT CLOSED FOR WINTER BREAK: The District will be closed December 21, 2017 - January 2, 2018. When we reopen on January 3, all administration staff currently at the Administration Center will be relocated to Baptiste Educational Center (5401 E. 103rd St, Kansas City, MO 64137).
