    Making A Difference In The Middle

VERY SOON Students Will Be Able To Ride The City Bus To School FREE OF CHARGE!!!
  • New Bus Service Offered
    HMS IS EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE A BRAND NEW SERVICE BEING OFFERED BY ACS AND THE CITY OF ANDERSON!!   Working together, they have established a new policy that will allow students of any ACS school to ride the city bus to any location free of charge.   Students can show their ID and ride anywhere, anytime, not just to and from school.  The students MUST show their current student ID for this to take place.  HMS is going to have the students place their ID card in the name card slot that is a part of their Chromebook case.  In addition, we suggest that the child take a picture of the ID with their phone or Chromebook as the bus company will accept those photos as their ID.  If a student were to lose their ID, they would need to purchase one from the picture company.
