Hunt Blog - October 23, 2016


 Good News


We're happy to report that a contract was agreed upon, the strike was avoided and all teachers are back to school! 



Fall Harvest Dinner Cancelled



Unfortunately the Hunt Middle School Harvest Dinner is cancelled for this year.


A series of unforeseen circumstances have rendered us unable to host this event this year.


We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.




Principal Notes



Dear Hunt Middle School Parent or Guardian:


Please be advised that we are changing our way of issuing progress reports due to our acquisition of the Canvas learning management system. Canvas is an online platform from which you can monitor your HMS student’s assignments and grades on an ongoing basis. In order to see your HMS student’s assignments and grades you will need to establish your own Canvas account. This may be easily accomplished by visiting the Hunt Middle School Website and filling out a brief online form. You will also need to have your HMS student’s log-in information. I have included instructions for setting up your Canvas account and linking it to your HMS student on the reverse side of this page.



Because grading information is now available on Canvas in real time, from this point forward we will not be issuing formal progress reports to all students. We will only be issuing formal progress reports to students who are receiving a grade of D or F in one or more classes. These reports are being mailed to students’ homes. We are very pleased to be providing this opportunity for parents and guardians to examine their student’s academic progress online at any time and are hopeful that the convenience and real-time availability of this information improves your family’s ability to partner with our school and teachers to support your HMS student’s academic success. Please feel free to contact our guidance office at (802) 864-8470 if you need any assistance in getting your Canvas account established. Thank you.

Very truly yours,


Len Phelan

Hunt Middle School Principal
