Update - The Governor of Indiana has extended the school closing through May 1, 2020. eLearning will continue on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday’s. There will be no mandatory state testing this spring.
Hamilton Families - As we continue daily to learn our new normal, I wanted to reach out to you all regarding eLearning. As you all know, we are doing eLearning Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays. I am asking you to partner with your children's teachers in encouraging you children to complete their weekly assignments by the following Monday after their 3 weekly eLearning days. This helps teachers and more importantly, students stay on top of their studies. In the likely even that this time period is extended, it is important that students stay on top of their studies in order to not fall behind and advance their academic gains as much as possible. The elementary and jr./sr. high have boxes located inside the front set of doors at the jr./sr. high and under the overhang by door 4 at the elementary to turn in paper copies that families have pick up. Several of you popped in to the building today to pick up items your children needed. This will no longer be permitted. The building is open to needed personnel only. If you require materials for your children, contact the school and schedule a time to receive them at specified pick up locations. Our building will be closed to all personnel during Spring Break to allow for a deep clean. I will continue to provide updates as situations change through every available means. As always, thank you for partnering with Hamilton Community Schools in encouraging your students to stay current with their work. Yours in Education, Tony Cassel

When you answer your door and acknowledge that they are there, they will place the meals on your porch, and we ask you not to step out until they have created a safe distance. This is to promote social distancing￼ and keep everyone safe and healthy. It appears that influenza is also starting to show up in the area, so we want to keep everyone safe.￼ Marine Strong!
