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.
PARENT SURVEY: As part of HMC-1's Title I program, we invite all our parents and guardians to complete the annual Title I Parent Evaluation Survey. Your responses will be used to help each school and the district improve instruction and programs. Surveys are available in English and Spanish and will close March 13, 2020.

CARING FOR KIDS PARTNERS:
We have amazing Caring for Kids partners that support our school and students.
We are supported by 3 churches and 2 business partners
In October 2018, Caring for Kids of Kansas City highlighted their partnership with Truman Elementary and invited Mrs. Herrera to speak at their Fundraising Banquet on October 23rd. Mrs. Herrera was recognized for her “commitment and dedication to the school, the impact she has had on the staff, students, and families, as well as the collaborative work done with Caring for Kids to help Truman reach its goals."
ARRIVAL AND DISMISSAL: Doors will open for students to begin arriving at 7:25 a.m. each morning. Students are counted tardy after 7:40 a.m. every day. All changes to dismissal need to be made to the office by 2:00 p.m. We discourage parents from picking students up after 2:15 p.m.
2:30-LINC is dismissed
2:35-2:45 bus riders are dismissed by grade
Once buses are gone, car riders will be dismissed.
Cars will be asked to pull all the way down to the north end of the drive and to form 2 lines. The Truman staff will load students into their car.
To ensure safety, please do not leave your vehicle or motion for your child to join you. Trust that the Truman staff is going to work as fast they can to get children loaded into cars.
