  • 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.

  • 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:

    • Starting October 9th, parents will not be able to check students out after 11:00am on early dismissal days.
    • All cars must enter from 107th and Greenwood.  ( James A Reed Road will be blocked for entry )
    • All cars will exit to James A Reed Rd from Greenwood.  ( Cars will be blocked from exiting to 107th street )
    • We will have a KCPD officer on hand to help with directing traffic.
    • Parents will not be allowed to park.  All children will be picked up from the Car Rider Lines.  We will have 2 lanes of traffic at the pick up for K-5 students.  So, please watch your lanes and the flow of traffic. 

    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.
