Dear Alexander Hamilton Families,


Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! I would like to extend a special welcome to all of the new families joining AH this year and welcome back all of our returning families as well! I am excited to begin our fourth year together as we work in partnership to ensure every student at Alexander Hamilton is actively engaged in a rigorous learning experience while developing social-emotional skills that will foster resilience, perseverance, empathy and the ability to collaborate and communicate in a diverse learning and work community.


We have been working diligently throughout the summer in preparation for the new school year.  Our dedicated staff are enthusiastically planning and preparing for the children while our much appreciated HSA is gearing up to welcome families, provide volunteer opportunities, and other exciting events and programs.  


Please review important information below:


OPENING DAY: September 5 (8:55 a.m. to 3:25 p.m.)

* Students may enter the building at 8:55 a.m. 

* Students will go directly to their classrooms. There will be adults in the front entrance ways and hallways to assist students in finding their classrooms.



Students enter the building at 8:55 a.m.  We ask that those students who ride with parents or walk arrive at school no earlier than 8:55 a.m.



Enter at the main driveway and stay to the right, where a staff member will direct you to drive slowly and carefully around the back of the building. Upon reaching the first entrance on the opposite side of the school (Door 3), stop, and staff will be there to assist with children exiting cars and entering the building. Parents will then proceed to the exit driveway, where staff will be positioned to enable safe transit to the exit back onto Mills Street. Please do not allow your child to exit the car unattended.



All walkers will be dismissed at 3:25. If you are picking up your child please send a note to the teacher in the morning. The students being picked up will be called to the hallway outside of the main office and supervised by faculty members.  You will be asked to sign your child out in the front vestibule.  All pick up parking is in the MHS Senior Parking Lot across Mills Street or on Colonial Road, which is at the rear of the school and is accessible from Washington and Early Streets. In the interest of safety, cars are not permitted in the school driveway at dismissal time.


Looking forward to a wonderful school year!


Edward Cisneros
