Congratulations 8th Grade Cougars!!
Please see the document below highlighting the program that we have created to celebrate our 8th Grade Cougars. The program will also include a baby picture montage, HCMS student video, and well-wishes from our staff.
The Parent Portal Access for Schoology has now been opened to Hungary Creek parents. This will allow you to follow all of your students’ courses throughout the school year.
In order to provide the highest level of security of your student’s personal information while also allowing you access to create and connect your Schoology account, HCPS has stored your child’s Schoology Access Code within PowerSchool. This means that parents will first create or sign into PowerSchool, locate the Schoology tab, and use the information found there to create and connect their Schoology account. Once a parent has completed setting up Schoology, they can sign into Schoology independently of Powerschool. Remember – Powerschool will continue to be the gradebook of record. When checking/verifying your child’s grades always refer to PowerSchool.

What is Anonymous Alerts?
The Anonymous Alerts safety and anti-bullying reporting system helps combat negative activity in schools by empowering students to speak up. Social and peer pressure are some of the hardest obstacles for students to overcome.
The system allows for one-way or two-way anonymous encrypted communication between those submitting reports (students, parents or community members) and school division administration and staff members. System users have the option to remain anonymous or reveal their identity when submitting a report.
How does it work?
To use the new app, students, parents or others simply visit the Henrico County Public Schools website and click on the “Anonymous Alerts” button or the text link to submit a report expressing a concern. Anonymous Alerts apps can be downloaded directly from the Apple, Google Play or Chrome stores.
Users enter Henrico Schools’ Anonymous Alerts activation code – Henrico – and select the school to which the message should go. Informational posters explaining how to use the system will be displayed in HCPS schools and offices.
To send reports from the internet, go to: https://report.anonymousalerts.com/henrico.
To send a report from your phone:
- Download the free Anonymous Alerts app from the Apple Store, Google Play store or Chrome store.
- Launch the app and enter the activation code, Henrico.
- Send important reports to school officials.
- If desired, add a screenshot, photo or video about the incident.
We are proud to announce that Hungary Creek Middle School is now a Common Sense certified school! We are committed to doing everything we can to help keep students safe and informed in a digital world!

Summer slide isn’t a piece of playground equipment – it’s the tendency for students to lose some of the progress they’ve made during the academic year. But there are ways to keep your students’ skills sharp and have fun all summer long.
