Recognizing the diverse needs and uniqueness of the early adolescent, Hale Middle School provides our students with authentic, creative learning opportunities that meet each student's physical, emotional, social and intellectual needs, allowing them to maximize their potential, and preparing them to be successful in future education. Through a climate of respect and inclusiveness, curricula that go beyond the traditional academic offerings, effective communication between all members of the school community, and the use of cutting edge educational techniques, we strive to educate the whole child. Our success will result in mature, independent, confident learners, who have the tools necessary for success in their further education as well as in their roles as productive members of their community.

Principal's Message


Dear Hale Parents,

I hope your week is wrapping up on a positive note. Friday is an early release day. 

Cohort B you will be dismissed at 11:30. If your parents pick you from school up, make sure they know it is an early release day and they need to be here by 11:30 am.


Cohort A you will be checking in with Mr. Perkins and I for attendance. The schedule and the meeting codes are below. 8th Graders will be checking in with Mrs. Murray for Remote Spanish, so they are not included in the list below.

I urge you to read through this and HMS COVID-19 Parent Guidelines and Protocols so you fully understand how this school year will operate.  A student friendly version of this information will be sent to all HMS students via their NRSD email accounts. However, I encourage you to discuss the contents of this with your child. 

Here is some logistical information:

Please read the HMS COVID-19 Parent Guidelines and Protocols and then review them with your child. The document is comprehensive and encompassing. It will help to answer many of your questions.

Each day students should arrive to school with:

  • 2 masks   
  • 1 lanyard (for mask breaks)
  • Filled water bottle
  • A sack lunch and a snack
  • Fully charged Chromebook 
  • School supplies in a backpack
  • Proper attire (we will be outside as much as is feasible)

Verify your student remembers their username and password. Call the main office if you need assistance (978) 897-4788. 

There will be no early drop off this year. Parent drop off will occur after the students have disembarked from the buses. 

School starts at 7:45 and ends at 2:15

Arrival and dismissal will take longer than previous years. Plan accordingly. 

Here is a virtual tour HMS (I apologize ahead of time for how corny it is, just trying to lighten things up!).

Here are the Back To School Supply lists:

6th Grade
7th Grade
8th Grade
