    When Will Students Receive Yearbooks?

    Yearbooks are usually delivered to HMS in mid-May. Currently, yearbooks are scheduled for distribution on Wednesday, May 17, 2023; however, this may be adjusted based on the calendar. If a student is absent on distribution day, the student may pick up the yearbook from May 19 to May 23 in Ms. Ezekiel's room, room 206, from 1:30–2:30 p.m.
