Holmes Middle School

Igniting a Passion for Learning, One Student at a Time


  • Holmes Students, Parents and Guardians,

    Welcome back everyone! We look forward to seeing our students return in the next couple of days. Remember, 6th Grade ONLY on August 16, followed by 6th through 8th grade on August 17. Please read below for some last minute / important reminders to set everyone up with a positive, successful experience.

    Thank you for going through our Student and Family Handbook. A couple of noteworthy items that will help ensure everyone's success from day 1 include:

    Classroom Expectations

    Students should be prepared for all classes by, at minimum, having their school provided chromebook, charger, pencil, and class notebook each period of the day.

    Cell Phone and Other Electronic Device Policy

    Students are not permitted their personal devices during the school day. If those devices need to be brought to school, they must be powered off and stored in their locker. Personal devices include smart watches with cell phone and texting capabilities. School staff will confiscate devices that are seen and / or heard. After the second offense, the device will only be returned to a parent or guardian. 

    Dress Code

    For complete information on what is included in our school dress code policy, see page 21 of the handbook. Students whose clothing attire does not align with the expectations of the policy will be directed by staff to comply, and if they are unable, a parent or guardian will be contacted to either take the student home and change or bring an appropriate article of clothing before the student returns to class. 

    Safety and Security

    Please be aware of the Safe2Tell system. Safe2Tell is a 24/7, 365 day anonymous reporting system, allowing any individual to report "anything that concerns or threatens students, their friends, their family, or their community."

    Reporting is easy, the reporting location is on the back of student ID's, or found at Safe2Tell.org, 1-877-542-SAFE. Anonymous reports go immediately to D11 Security, School Administration, and CSPD. 

    Thank you for your attention to this information!

  • The federal waivers that allowed all students to eat free for the last 2 years have expired and students will need to qualify for free or reduced meals to be able to eat their school meals for free.

    District 11 Food and Nutrition Service, along with other districts across the nation, will be returning to the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) this school year. This is the same way meals were served  prior to the pandemic school shutdown

    Please see the attached documents for more information and links to the online Free and Reduced Meal Application.

    Why Aren't School Meals Free This Year?
