I am still amazed with the cooperation and hard work of our staff during the recent snow. Although the weather was so unexpected and caught everyone off guard in the entire Birmingham area, it was certainly a smooth experience at the school. The teachers worked tirelessly into the night, caring for all the children and some carried this strength up for two nights until all the children were picked up. The parents that lived in the area were especially helpful, delivering food, blankets and pillows for the children. Although this experience will stay with us for a long time, it is just another shining example of the devotion our staff has to the students and parents of the HMS community. Many of our families also sheltered children in their homes and despite all the travel issues and other concerns, we all worked together for the benefit of the children. Hopefully, this week will be uneventful as we resume our regular activities. We appreciate you all!
