Dear Alexander Hamilton High School Parents and Students,
It is with pleasure that I welcome everyone to the 2017-2018 academic year. I hope your summer has been enjoyable and restful. Our building has been under renovation all summer but we expect it to be completed before the students arrive. The teachers and staff are excited to begin this school year with a leadership focus. As your new Principal, I am looking forward to meeting everyone. I’ve planned a Meet & Greet for Thursday, August 24, at 6:00p in the Grady Library. Please look for details on our website.
The Code of Conduct, as well as many useful reminders and information may be found on the district website at www.eufsd.org. I encourage everyone to join us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter to receive exciting updates about our school.
Parents and students are encouraged to refer to the Elmsford Union Free School District Code of Conduct. Please pay close attention to our Closed Campus Policy:
First Day Reminders
First day of school for all students is Tuesday, September 5, 2017.
The start time and end time for the 2017-18 year is as follows*:
Beginning Bell: 7:45am (all students must be in their Period 1 class)
End Time: 2:24pm - except Mondays, which will dismiss at 1:57pm,
and unless otherwise stated in your child’s schedule.
* Please refer to the enclosed bell schedule for the class period times.
Students entering the building prior to 7:35am must enter through the cafeteria.
When dropping off your child, please drop them off at the top of the driveway. Do not stop at the bottom; crossing the driveway is dangerous and is a blind spot for other drivers.
Parent Portal Reminder
If you have not done so already, please create an account on our eSchool Parent Portal. Once an account is created, you will have access to your child’s schedule, attendance, progress reports and report cards. You may create an account by accessing the district website at www.eufsd.org and clicking on the “Resources” tab. There is a section for parents which will link you to the parent portal or you may access it directly by logging on to https://esdparentportal.lhric.org/.
The staff will continue to create an environment of academic support that addresses the needs of each of our students. Parents, I encourage you to review the schedule with your child to be sure that they are scheduled for all appropriate classes. I would like to again highlight that students will continue to be dismissed every Monday at 1:57pm. Students will meet in their regularly scheduled classes for shortened periods, which will allow teachers to meet for strategic planning through Professional Learning Communities (PLC) to continue improving the academic experience at Hamilton.
If there are any questions or concerns regarding your child’s schedule, school counselors will be here to assist you and your child with their academic needs. The following schedule will accommodate the need for schedule changes for grades 11 and 12 only:
Thursday, August 24
Monday, August 28
To make an appointment for any scheduling concerns, please call the Guidance office at (914) 592-8532. The office will open August 23rd.
Note that our Back To School Night will be Thursday, September 28. Please save the date on your calendar. More information to follow.
I am excited about this school year and look forward to greeting the students on the first day of school!
