Student & Family Handbook

Dear Students and Parents:

Hudson Memorial School is a student-focused community committed to delivering a challenging and comprehensive curriculum for all students by fostering student engagement, critical thinking, and creativity. Our instructional strategies promote the mastery of core competencies through technology, written communication, comprehension of complex material, and valuable research. We believe that the foundation for student success is the development of a strong work ethic and a personal responsibility.

The school is organized into eight core academic teams. Each team consists of a math teacher, science teacher, social studies teacher, and two language arts teachers. All students will be assigned to a team. All students will participate in an eight-period school day consisting of the following: a fifteen-minute homeroom period, two periods of language arts, one period of math, one period of science, one period of social studies, two periods of unified arts, a thirty-minute academic focus period, and a thirty-minute lunch. The school day begins at 7:45 a.m. and ends at 2:25 p.m. Homeroom begins at 7:35 a.m. and ends at 7:52 a.m. All students must arrive at school prior to 7:45 a.m. Any student entering the school after 7:45 a.m. will be marked tardy for that day.

Throughout the school year, each student at Hudson Memorial will have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of extra-curricular and co-curricular activities. These activities will help to develop student talents, self-esteem, peer relationships, and school spirit. Clubs and activities offered at HMS include but are not limited to Student Council, Robotics, Computer Club, Ski Club, Chess Club, Math Club, Recycling Club, Leadership in Prevention, Intramural Athletics, Interscholastic Athletics, Yearbook Club, the School Musical, and Art Club.
