Dear Hamilton Ridge Families,
On behalf of the entire staff, I wish you a warm welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at Hamilton Ridge Elementary! We are excited to meet you and begin school in this amazing new space. Ms. Kirsten and Ms. Beverley (office staff) and I are ready to assist you, answer your questions, and support your students. I look forward to seeing you on September 10 or 11 during the Back-to-School Welcome Days. Students in group A attend their first day of school on September 14 and students in group B begin on September 15. This week you will receive communication from your child's/children's teacher(s). Welcome to Hamilton Ridge! We are so happy you are here.

Back-to-School Welcome Days
Back-to-School will look a little different this year; to comply with social distancing procedures resulting from COVID-19 there will not be an Open House Back-to-School event. On September 10 and 11, all students in grades K-5 will meet with their 2020-21 teacher for a 30 minute time slot. Students, along with their parent or guardian, will have the opportunity to drop off supplies, get acquainted with their homeroom teacher and learn more about how the Hybrid Model classroom will work. Please follow the link to PTCfast, our conference scheduling website, to sign up for a time slot with your student's teacher(s).
2020-21 Bus Information
Bus information is currently available in Infinite Campus. Once you log in you can view this information under the Transportation tab. Please contact District Transportation at 952-226-0050 with any questions.
