Good Morning!
This is Brian Hickman, Principal of Hartsville Middle School. As you are aware, all student work was to be submitted yesterday, May 26. Here is the schedule we will use for students returning items (and picking up items from school).

Friday, May 29: 6th grade

Monday, June 1: 7th grade

Wednesday, June 3: 8th grade

Times will be 9:00 - 3:30 and will be a "drive-through" style in the 6th-grade car line (the front of the school). Please make sure the iPad is charged. We have to see the iPad working, scan for damage, and make sure the original charger and cord are with it. Please also return any library books and textbooks. We will issue you a receipt for your records.
*You may also pre-purchase yearbooks for $35.00 if you have not already purchased a book. They WILL NOT be in until mid/end of summer, but you can reserve yours during this time.

If any student needs to pick up items from the school, we will have a place for you to do that...just ask when you arrive. We will have many people outside to assist with the process, but it may take a little time. Please be patient with us.

For students needing to attend summer school or for students attending summer remediation, you will be given a schedule to return to school and have the iPad reissued to you. We will have a small gift for all of our 8th graders at this time.

Report cards will be mailed to parents, so please make sure we have the correct mailing address for your family.

This has been a challenging year and I greatly appreciate everyone's patience and flexibility with us as we all worked our way through the eLearning challenges. I hope you all have a safe and enjoyable summer.

At Hartsville Middle School we believe:

A successful learning process involves family, community, and schools working together.

All individuals have unique abilities, interests, talents, and skills through which they can 

All individuals have worth and can contribute to society.

Learning is a lifelong process.

  We value: Integrity, Pride, Respect, Accountability and Commitment
