Welcome to Horizon Middle School. We are excited to have you as PANTHERS! Horizon Middle School challenges students to excel in their studies and personal growth. Middle school is a time for you to begin to take responsibility for your own education. You will be challenged to organize yourself; to get the most out of every class, and to ask questions if you do not understand or need clarification. Your teachers are there to assist you; ask them for help. Arrange to see them before or after school and take advantage of study programs offered at Horizon Middle School. Please see the YouTube video from our principal, Dustin Horras, about the expectations for the 2022-2023 School Year.
This handbook describes the policies and expectations of Horizon Middle School.
These expectations are stated in accordance with District 49 Board of Education policies and Colorado revised statute. These policies and laws declare that every student in a public school in the state of Colorado has the right to learn in an environment that is safe, conducive to the learning process, and free from unnecessary disruptions. You are expected to know and follow these rules. Specific/additional policies and expectations may be in effect for individual classes. We believe all students can and will learn.
If at any time you would like a printed copy of this handbook, please contact the school office and we will be happy to provide one for you.
