Due to weather conditions, all Hamden Public Schools will be delayed by 2 hours today, November 16, 2018.
We have become aware that a fake Twitter account masquerading as Hamden Public Schools has tweeted that there is no school tomorrow - IT'S NOT TRUE. We are working with the authorities to shut down this bogus account.
There will be no school on Tuesday, November 6, for teacher professional development.
The Special BOE meeting scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 1 has been rescheduled until Thursday, Nov. 29. The Board decided to postpone the meeting because additional information is expected in the next few weeks which could prove critical to inform this important decision. Although we know that parents and staff were expecting the final decision this week, the Board members are not prepared to vote without the expected additional information. Out of respect for our parents and staff, the Board did not want to hold the meeting knowing that they could not yet make a final decision. The vote about district restructuring will occur at the rescheduled Nov. 29 Special BOE meeting.

Hamden DECA students raised over $1,100 selling lemonade (and receiving donations from driver's on Dixwell Avenue) through "Alex's Lemonade Stand" - all to help fight childhood cancer. We are so proud of our students!
More heat... more early dismissals! On Thursday, September 6, three of our schools will have early dismissals due to high temps and A/Cs that just can't handle the heat! HCLC will dismiss at 11:00, Shepherd Glen will dismiss at 12:34 and Bear Path will dismiss at 1:04. Remember how much you disliked this heat when it's February and the snow won't stop. :-)
Once again, the hot weather means we'll be dismissing our Hamden High School students at 11:30 and HCLC students at 11:00 on Thursday, August 30.
Dunbar Hill Elementary, Hamden High School and HCLC will have early dismissals on Wednesday, August 29, due to the hot weather and the air conditioning units in those buildings. Dunbar Hill will dismiss students at 12:30, HHS will dismiss at 11:30 and HCLC at 11:00. All other buildings will dismiss at their usual times.
We are excited to begin another school year!
