Hamden Family University Coming October 18
Look for the registration information in September

Families play an essential role in the education of our students. With this in mind, Hamden Public Schools has created the Hamden Family University. The HFU is a chance for parents, grandparents and others involved in raising our children to learn about topics related to parenting and educating children, as well as increase their own skills in areas like computer use, personal finance and accessing resources in our community.

Refreshments!    Prizes!    Free Lunch and Childcare!

We hope you will attend on October 18th for the inaugural Hamden Family University! Childcare will be available so your children ages 3-12 can learn and have fun while you do the same!


We hope our students read lots of fun and interesting books this summer for Summer Reading! Click on the links below for more information, including the suggested books lists and the journal.

Our New Superintendent -

Welcome to Jody Goeler, previously the Superintendent of Schools for Region 14. Read his letter to the families of Hamden Public Schools here.


Doors open at 8:30 AM and student walkers from grades K - 6 will enter through the front door. Do not drop off your child at the school before 8:30 am, as there is no adult supervision.   

Bus:  If your child usually takes the bus and you do not want your child taking the bus home on a specific day , please make sure you write a note.  Without a note your child will be placed on the bus. 
Walkers:  Parents, please form a line and wait for your child to be dismissed to you for the safety of everyone!  If your child is a walker we are asking you to wait for dismissal.  Please do not come into the office to pick up your child between 3:15 PM and 3:30 PM. 
  • Grades K and 1 will be dismissed from the lower level at 3:25 PM
  • Grades 2 and 3 will be dismissed through the main doors at 3:30 PM
  • Grades 4, 5 and 6 will be dismissed through the side doors near the playground at 3:34 PM
Should you need to pick up your child early, please send in a note. If you have not sent in a note and cannot pick up your child before 3:15, please wait until regular dismissal times as it is very disruptive to the dismissal process to call students out of class between 3:15 and 3:30.  Thank you for your cooperation with this request.
