Main Contacts--Who do you call if you have an issue?

You can always call the main phone number if you have a question and it will be routed to the correct person if the receptionist, Aracely Hernandez, cannot answer the question. However, here is the contact information for all the administrators and counselors at HCMS. We are already working on getting to know the students we support so do not hesitate to reach out if you want to be sure we are aware of your child's unique needs. Counselors and assistant principals each have a portion of the alphabet. This allows us to get to know you and your child and provide support during the two years at HCMS.
