NEW VISITOR & VOLUNTEER SECURITY PROCEDURES: Beginning Monday, September 17, 2018, all HMC-1 buildings will begin using the Raptor Visitor Management System to strengthen campus safety for students and faculty. The Raptor system will better allow us to screen visitors, contractors, and volunteers in our schools and provide us with a safer environment for our students and staff. Upon entering a district building, visitors will be asked to present a government-issued ID, such as a driver’s license, which can either be scanned or manually entered into the system. For more information and details about updated volunteer background checks, please visit our informational page.
#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. Here at Johnson Elementary we are having a weekly drawing on Fridays to encourage everyone to come to school. All students in attendance have their name in a hat. If those students names are drawn, they win a special prize so be sure to make an extra effort to come to school! Click here to learn more.
IMPORTANT CHANGES TO THE 2018/19 CALENDAR: An updated District calendar for the 2018/19 school year is available to download. Please note the first day of school will now be August 15. There are also two additional days of no school so staff can participate in professional development. Similar changes have also been made to the 2019/20 calendar.

#HMC1ATTENDANCEMATTERS: Please mark your calendars for our district-wide “HMC-1 Day of Perfect Attendance” on Wednesday, September 26. Of course it's a joy to see all students every day, on September 26th we will have a district-wide challenge to shine when every student comes to school.

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.
