• Welcome to the Hammarskjold Middle School Parents Portal!  See below for important dates of upcoming events at HMS.  Please visit this page often as it is always changing!  Enjoy your visit.

    Parent Teacher Conferences are Tuesday, March 19 - Friday, March 22.  Students will have a half day with lunch on those days.

    March 19 & 21 - Conferences are available in the EVENINGS ONLY - 5:30-8:30

    March 20 & 22 - Conferences are available in the AFTERNOONS ONLY - 1:20-2:50

     Appointments are necessary for conferences.  If you were unable to schedule a conference during the log in period last week, you may e-mail the teacher you wish to speak with, and they will schedule a phone conference with you at a time that is mutually agreeable.

    Please remember that you do not need to wait for Parent Teacher conferences to communicate with your child's teacher.  You may e-mail your child's teacher at any time throughout the year to set up a telephone conference.

    If you are coming in for your conference and need to know the room number, please check the posters located in the front of the building and throughout the building for those numbers.


    Having a problem???
    If your child is having a locker problem or any problem at all, please encourage them to go to their Grade Level Administrator's office.  The Grade Level Administrator will discuss the issue with your child and come up with a solution that will work for your child.  We encourage students to get to know their Grade Level Administrator and feel comfortable speaking with them during lunches, in the hallways or in the office suites. 
    If you have a classroom issue that you would like to address, please contact the teacher of that class first.  Many times the issue can be resolved between you and the teacher.  You may e-mail the teacher by following their link on our "STAFF" pages.
    If you have a Transportation issue, please contact the Transportation Office at (732) 613-6840 or 6841
    Scheduling issues can be addressed by your child's counselor.  You may call the office directly at (732) 613-6845.   
  • Just a reminder about our procedure for dropping items off for your child:

    Please be sure to drop items off before your child's scheduled lunch so we can announce for them to pick up their item at their lunchtime. 

    *If you are unable to get to the school before their lunch, kindly contact your child at their lunch time when cell phones are permitted, to let them know the time you'll drop the item off and they can come pick it up  between periods in the afternoon. 

    We do not call into classrooms and disrupt instruction at Hammarskjold, which is why your communication with your child is important to convey this message.

    Thanks for working with us to make Hammarskjold as disruption free to your child's learning as possible.


    Mike Gaskell, Hammarskjold Principal
