    Hello all HMS families,
      Attached is the free and reduced lunch form. In-person students will receive a form at school and we are asking VLA families to print one at home if you are able. Please fill out the form and return to school with your child or at food pick up! Although we are lucky to have free breakfast and lunch for all we need everyone to fill out a form as that determines the allotment from the government. Thank you, everyone, for your support :)

    HMS Theme Days
    We encourage all students and staff to join in our school spirit days each week in order to build community spirit!
    Mondays = Wear Green or Hoover Gear day - show your Dragon spirit!
    Thursdays = Kindness Day (wear kindness theme shirts, buttons, and/or extend extra kindness to others)
    Fridays = Wear gear from your favorite sports teams! 

     From the weekly message from Superintendent Cimato:
    Revised 2020-21 Calendar
    At the February 9 Board of Education meeting, the Board approved a revised 2020-21 school year calendar which includes three important changes. You can access the calendar at www.ktufsd.org/calendar. The first is a change to the Superintendent Conference Day scheduled for Friday, March 19. This day has been moved to Wednesday, March 17, to provide an additional day of in-person attendance. For any students who would normally attend on Fridays, March 19 will be a day of in-person instruction.
    The second change is the addition of Juneteenth as a district holiday for students and staff. Going back to 1865, Juneteenth is a very important day that celebrates the end of slavery in the United States. It is now recognized as a public holiday in New York State. Since it falls on a Saturday this year, the holiday will be observed on Friday, June 18, so there will be no student or staff attendance that day.
    The final change involves our plan for emergency days. With the addition of Juneteenth, our calendar now allows for up to three emergency days, which are typically used as snow days if needed. If more than the allotted number of emergency days are used, we would normally have to make up these days of lost instructional time. A new state program is allowing school districts to conduct remote learning as an alternative. Therefore, in Ken-Ton, in the event that we need additional emergency days beyond the three that are allotted, we will take advantage of this program. As you know, we have not used any emergency days thus far.
