Do you have a student who's new to the schools? Let us know! Send a message to email@example.com, and we'll put you in touch with the HSA's New Families Liaison and add your email address to the HSA distribution list.
In your student's back-to-school packet, you should find two forms that tell you what you need to know about the Federated Handbook -- how your student is listed in it, and how you can get a copy of it.
The first is the "Students Demographics" form, sent to you from the schools. On it you will find your student's name, grade, address, parent/guardian names and telephone number. This is the information that will be printed in the Federated Handbook. Please check and double check that this information is correct, and submit any changes or updates to your child's school ASAP.
The second is the "Support Your Student" or membership form, sent to you by the HSA. By sending in this form with your $20 dues, you automatically are eligible to receive one copy of the Federated Handbook. Extra handbooks are available for $5 each. But you must send in the form. Once the order is placed and the handbooks are printed, we can't guarantee availability.
Questions? Let us know! Send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I do have to say, it was nice to have the extra days of summer vacation, but now we are off and running. First, I would like to welcome all our new families to the MS/HS and welcome back our returning families. And I would like to welcome all the new teachers in the middle school and high school. We are looking forward to a wonderful year. (More ... )
Dear Sixth Grade Families:
Welcome to Glen Rock Middle School. Some of you have been here before, and some of you are first-timers. The HSA has put together a welcome information document with general information to help adjust to the new surroundings.
Even if you are not new to the school, please look over this information as many procedures have changed this year. One example: No more bringing items to the middle school office for your child. All items will be left at the main entrance at the Hamilton circle.
Please join us for our first HSA meeting at 9 a.m. Sept. 26 in the Media Center (entrance is in the Hamilton lobby).
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Grace M.F. Cosgriff, President
