Order School Supplies for 2016-2017 By June 15th

school-supplies-logoIn conjunction with D181 registration, you may now order school supplies for the upcoming school year online through EPI.

School supply kits are facilitated by the PTO as a convenience to parents. Supplies will be delivered to students home via UPS the week of August 12. The PTO hopes this will eliminate some of the delivery problems experienced by some families last year. You will receive communication from the school regarding when students will have access to their lockers.

Click here to order school supply kits. Please carefully read the ordering instructions as some procedures and delivery information may have changed. The instructions also include information for families of Fee Waiver students to receive supply kits. Families who choose not to order through EPI can find the supply lists by grade on the HMS PTO website.

Questions?  Contact the Committee Chair for School Supplies. Order deadline is June 15, 2016!
