August 23rd is our Kick Off/Open House from 4-6pm for all HMS families.  (We will not have an orientation in the morning).  This window of time (4:00pm to 6:00pm) is for students and parents to come together to:

  • Pick up the Kick-Off Packet (Packets will not be mailed home).  This packet contains your student’s schedule, bus information, and important forms including the Emergency Care Card, Health Form, etc. 
  • Use a map and your child’s schedule to walk the building and familiarize yourself with classroom locations.  (Teachers will not be present).
  • Get information on school programs such as the After School Program, clubs, electives and additional student organizations.
  • Learn about how to support and access school and community resources such as Herndon Helping Hands food distribution, our clothing closet and additional student resources.
  • Sign up and replenish school accounts: retrieve your ParentVue account in order to monitor your child’s academic progress throughout the year, order P.E. uniforms and add money to your child’s cafeteria account.
  • Pick up backpacks and school supplies- to be distributed only to Herndon Middle School students in need of assistance. 
  • Drop off medications and forms in the Clinic. 
  • Build community: We will have food trucks out back to allow families to purchase food and get to know other families coming to Herndon MS.  Food trucks will also donate a portion of proceeds back to the school.
