Happy Friday Falcons,

Congratulations to Ms. Stacey Sartor and all of our chorus students. They were absolutely fabulous. We are proud of all of you.
Congratulations to Mr. Patrick Walls and all of his orchestra students. What an incredible performance! Great job to each student in both ensembles.

IMPORTANT IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS for rising 7th grade students - Effective the first day of school, 2022-2023, 1 dose of Tdap vaccine and 1 dose of Meningococcal vaccine will be required by the state of Maryland for all students entering Grade 7. If we do not receive proof of these immunizations, your child will be excluded from school. Many students may have already received these immunizations, but the Health Room may not have the updated immunization record. Please contact your child’s doctor and send, via email or fax, an updated copy of your child’s immunizations to the Health Room. Our fax # is (410) 531-2473. If you have further questions, please call our Health Room at (410) 313-1510
8th Grade Balloons - Celebrate your 8th Grade accomplishments with a balloon yard pole or bouquet. Order by May 31 for free delivery on June 10. A portion of sales will be donated to the PTSA. See flyer attached or visit www.perfectlywrappedgifts.com/middle-school-graduation-balloons

Damaged Chromebooks - If a student has a damaged Chromebook, please have them bring the device to Mrs. Taylor in the media center. A repair request will be entered for the Chromebook. If the technology office finds the device has been damaged by the student and the family has a financial obligation, they will be notified by HCPSS. Most families will receive two emails. One will come from firstname.lastname@example.org alerting the family about the financial obligation. The second email will be an invoice sent from the My School Bucks website. Students will not be issued a replacement Chromebook until the invoice is paid.
Parents who have questions regarding the technical assessment are directed to contact DeviceDeployment@hcpss.org and if they have questions regarding the invoice, they can contact email@example.com. FQMS does not play a part in making decisions on these financial obligations or collecting payment.
