United Way Christmas Card Coloring Contest Award
This week the United Way of Hernando County announced the winners of their annual Christmas Card coloring contest. There were 452 submissions and only 5 students won! One of them was our very own Sacagewia G. from West Hernando Middle School! Her artwork will be featured on the hundreds of United Way holiday cards sent out to community members. Special thanks to the United Way of Hernando County for also gifting a box of school supplies to Sacagewia's teacher and classroom.

Democracy Through Art Contest
Hernando County Supervisor of Elections Shirley Anderson along with her office recently sponsored the Democracy Through Art Contest. Participating students were to express what democracy means to them. Representing WHMS were 8th graders Allie Mueller (pictured left) and Jordan Thomas (right). The girls were recognized with certificates and a bag of art supplies and their artwork is now on display at the Brooksville City Hall Gallery. Jordan's artwork is the one with the bracelets and Allie's artwork has the two hands with the vote theme.
Great work, Allie and Jordan!

IMPORTANT NOTICE - New Dismissal Policy
Thank you for making sure that your child is at school on time and stays throughout the entire day - instructional time is very important. Starting this year, we will not release students for dismissal after 3:30 PM. Please plan accordingly when scheduling appointments for your child. For the safety of our students, please wait through the parent pickup line and do not park in the grass across the street from the school. We have procedures for dismissal in place to keep our students safe and we do not want them crossing the street where there is no crossing guard stationed. Thank you for your cooperation.
Change to the 2019-2020 Student Code of Conduct
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Change to the 2019-2020 Student Code of Conduct - In the event of a school emergency, students must be able to hear and follow staff directions therefore students will not be permitted to use earbuds/headphones on campus unless approved for classroom or lab settings. Please review page 10 in the Student Code of Conduct.
Parent access to Chalk, the program for student grades and progress reporting, requires that the school has a parent e-mail address on file. If you have not done so already, please be sure to update your student’s contact information with an active e-mail address. If you have recently provided an e-mail address to the school, please allow two business days for this information to be entered and then synced from our main information system to Chalk. If you provided an e-mail address and still have not received an e-mail from Chalk Team after two days, please contact the school so that staff can investigate and resolve the issue.
When setting up your Chalk account, you will be prompted for a six word Student Activation Code. Note that this same activation code authorizes access to student grades and progress for both student and parent accounts. If a student and/or parent does not have possession of his or her Student Activation Code, note that this is available at the front desk, from any of the student’s teachers, or can be provided by calling the school. Thank you.
