Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!

My name is Erika Douglas and it is an honor to hold the position of principal at Hempstead Middle School.  I am entering my third year with the district and the HMS Family.  As we enter into this new wave of existing, we will still push for success for each and every one of our students.  Anything less is not an option.  Our theme for the year: Destination Learning...Proceed with Compassion and Purpose.  Regardless of the mode chosen for your child's education for the 2020-2021 school year, we will all have compassion and remember our why.  Our students are our future and we must do what is necessary to guarantee that our future is a success. 

Thank you for all that you have done thus far in preparing your child, our student, for this upcoming school year.  These are unprecedented times, and we will get through them together.  As we move forward, please be patient with your child, your child's teacher and the HMS staff.  We are all here for the same purpose, keeping your child safe while they are learning.  

Thank you for your support!

Erika Douglas
