UPDATE - RADON MITIGATION COMPLETED: Mitigation systems at Johnson Elementary have been installed in areas previously identified as having high levels of radon. The Surgeon General, EPA, Centers for Disease Control and other health organizations recommend radon levels be under 4.0 pCi/L. We are pleased to say follow-up testing shows that radon levels are now 1.3 pCi/L or less.
Hickman Mills School District will be on Spingbreak 2018, March 26-30. Classes will resume at the usual time April 2, 2018.
Lifetouch will be here at Johnson Elementary to take pictures of students, classes, and teachers. Be sure to look your best!
RADON MITIGATION UPDATE: On February 26, the HMC-1 Board of Education approved the contract of a radon mitigation company. We will provide an update once dates for mitigation installation are finalized.
DON'T MISS OUT: Beginning this spring, parents will be able to register online for the 2017 - 2018 school year! A new online fee / payment system will also become available. Parents must have an online Parent Portal account created to access both of these new additions. Click here to create you account, or visit Johnson Elementary's library media center for help so you can be ready when these systems go live!
INFORMATION REGARDING RADON LEVELS: HMC-1 is committed to providing a safe environment for our students to learn and succeed. As a part of this commitment, we recently volunteered for environmental testing of all district facilities, testing specifically for radon. This letter from Superintendent Yolanda Cargile, Ed.D. is to inform you that Johnson has elevated radon levels in some areas, how the District plans to mitigate and communicate progress. It also includes important explanations from the Department of Health & Senior Services (DHSS).
It is important to note that the DHSS officials, who conducted the radon testing, have reassured District administration that Johnson students and staff are not under any health risks.
NEW HARASSMENT & BULLYING POLICY POSTED: Important information related to changes in Missouri criminal codes has been posted to the District's website. These changes may have an impact on students in the HMC-1 community. The purpose behind the new laws is to protect students who fall victim to bullying and to discourage students from engaging in any sort of physical altercations.
As of January 1, 2017, substantial revisions to some of the Missouri criminal codes took effect. Please see the newly posted policy for details and answers to frequently asked questions.
