The Hamden High School Governance Council has decided to postpone the election for the vacant parent position until September 2018 out of respect for those Hamden High families directly affected by the devastating tornado that has damaged the northern part of town. Nominations and candidate forms that have already been submitted will be held on to and included at the start of the new academic term when the nomination and election process begins anew. Thank you for your understanding. For more information about the Hamden High School Governance Council please click here to visit our webpage
