Dismissal Reminder From The HSE Student Handbook

Changes in how your child will be going home that are different from his/her normal routine are required to have a note from home. The note needs to have the student's full name, date, dismissal change and parent signature. A note must be sent in everyday that the change is in affect. The note will then be sent to the office to keep track of each student's mode of transportation. Thanks for helping us keep our students safe.

Giving Tuesday

This year, on Tuesday, December 1, 2015, please join CRE and the entire Hamilton Southeastern School District for a day of giving. The idea is simple. We've celebrated a day of thanks, two to shop and now one to give back. On this Giving Tuesday, consider supporting the local cause at the heart of our community: our children's education.

Donations of any amount made to the Hamilton Southeastern Schools Foundation serve every student, every grade, every school. This is incredibly important as every HSE student will move through four local schools on their road toward graduation. Please watch for more information coming home with your student(s) soon.
