MEAL CHANGES: HMC-1 is committed to providing meals to students as we navigate through this challenging time. Beginning Tuesday, March 31st, Grab & Go meals distribution will change. Meals will only be available at school sites, including the Johnson and Symington Elementary buildings, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Unfortunately, we are no longer able to deliver Grab & Go meals through bus routes. This decision comes as we work to balance the needs of our students with the increased spread of the Coronavirus and the desire to keep our volunteers and staff members safe.
Meals will be available at:
Compass, Dobbs, Ervin, Freda, Ingels, Millennium, Ruskin, Truman and Warford
Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Meals will be available at:
Johnson and Symington
Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Grab & Go bags will include lunch and breakfast items to last two or three days. Students must be present to receive a meal. Thank you for your patience and continued support as we go through this unprecedented time together. Please feel free to email me or contact your child's teacher should you have any questions.
FLEXIBLE LEARNING PLAN: Due to the mandate of school closures announced by Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas, HMC-1 is closing all school buildings and suspending all activities through April 24. This includes in-person instruction, extra-curricular activities, and LINC programming.
Starting Tuesday, March 24, all instruction will take place through a Flexible Learning Plan (i.e. virtual learning). There will be printed packets available for families without WiFi. Packets will be distributed March 24 between 7:00-10:00 am. and 4:00-6:00 pm at the Administration Center (5401 E. 103rd St.).
Details about Flexible Learning, meals, and technology are available in our COVID-19 web section.
PROPOSED CHANGES: HMC-1 is exploring changes to school start times and bus transportation. These changes will significantly reduce transportation costs by using fewer buses. If the Board of Education approves, the proposed changes would begin with the 2020-2021 school year.
For more information and to provide your feedback, see our online feedback form. Responses will be accepted through April 1, 2020.

EARLY RELEASE DAY DISSMISSAL PROCEDURES: This Wednesday, October 9 is an Early Release Day. Our school will dismiss both PK and K-5 students at approximately 11:30am. The last Early Release Day caused some traffic issues, so we have taken steps to help with a quicker, more efficient flow of Car Rider Pick Up traffic. Please note the following:
Keep in mind that these procedures are in place for your safety, for your children's safety, and for staff safety. Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we strive to make car rider pick up a smooth and pleasant experience for you.
