HMS Updates

  • February 13, 2019


    Greetings Horizon Middle School Families,


    A fire alarm was activated this morning at approximately 9:28 a.m. HMS administrators immediately evacuated the school. All students moved quickly and safely out of the building while our partners at the Cimarron Hills Fire Department dispatched a crew to HMS.


    CHFD searched the school and gave the all clear to return to normal activities. Students returned to the building to continue their day at HMS at 9:41 a.m., approximately 13 minutes after the initial alarm. There was no active fire and no threat to students or staff. HMS security discovered the cover of a smoke detector was damaged which caused the alarm to sound. HMS administrators are looking into how the detector was damaged.


    D49 thanks our partners at the Cimarron Hills Fire Department and encourages all of our staff, students and families to stay alert for anything unusual. D49 will continue to be proactive and partner with first responders to ensure a safe learning environment awaits every District 49 learner.  



    David Nancarrow

    Director of Communications
