Reminder for Students

To maintain order and safety at school, administrators are taking additional steps to ensure students are where they are supposed to be. Students have been reminded that they must have a pass if they are out of class. As we approach the end of the year, if students are out of class without permission they will be supervised for the period and may have additional consequences if they have repeated violations of this rule. We ask your support in reminding students to follow all school rules and stay focused for the remainder of the year.

Please contact administrators at HMS with any questions.
Call 703-904-4800 or
Email John Bordenkecher (Dean of Students) jmbordenkech@fcps.edu
For Spanish contact Kim Sanchez (Administrative Assistant to Principal Klena) kysanchez@fcps.edu

Medication Pick up

The school health room is reminding parents and guardians that all medication stored in the health room must be picked up no later than the student dismissal time on the last day of school. Medication left in the health room after that time will be discarded. It is school policy that medications must be picked up by the parent or guardian. Medication cannot be sent home with your student. However, with parent or guardian permission, a high school student may transport over-the-counter medications to and from the school health room.

Medication authorization forms for next school year may be obtained from the school or online at https://www.fcps.edu/resources/student-safety-and-wellness/school-health-services. A medication authorization form is required for any medication, prescription or over-the-counter, to be kept at school. Please be sure medication orders are clear. All information on the form must be completed. Part I must be signed and dated by the parent or guardian. Part II must be signed and dated by your physician. Over-the-counter medication given for headache, muscle pain, orthodontic pain, or menstrual cramps and antibiotic or anti-viral medication do not need a physician signature. More detailed information is available on the back of the medication authorization form.

Over-the-counter medication must be in the original container and clearly labeled by the parent or guardian. All prescription medication, including physician’s samples, must be labeled by the pharmacist or physician. Please make sure that the label clearly states your student’s name, the name of the medication, the dosage of the medication, and the time interval for administration.

If your child will be enrolled in a summer program sponsored by Fairfax County Public Schools, your existing long-term medication authorization form(s) may be used for the summer program. Please let the health room know if you would like a copy of the form(s).

Your cooperation will ensure that we can safely give your student his or her medication. If you have any questions, please contact your school health room aide, at 703-904-4810, or your school public health nurse, Nicole Morales, at 703-343-3252.

Thank you for your cooperation and have a good summer.
