The Hamilton School District is committed to providing a safe and healthy learning environment for all students and staff in the 2020-21 school year. We have compiled numerous materials to address concerns that families may have. These materials will be updated as guidance, requirements and plans evolve; please check back often for the latest information.
Update for Dec. 9, 2020: The Hamilton School District will follow the guidance of the Waukesha County Public Health Department (WCPHD) and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services in accepting new quarantine recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention to allow some asymptomatic people to shorten their quarantine period. Learn more in this message to families. Note that documents regarding the length of quarantines will be updated on the district’s website as they become available from Waukesha County Public Health Department and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
This chart is updated nightly based on student and staff attendance data. As students and staff return from quarantine and isolation, they are removed from school and district counts. Data does not include students participating in 100% virtual online learning.

The following protocol, as advised by the Waukesha County Public Health Department, will be used to communicate to families about positive cases of COVID-19 in schools:
- County notifies positive cases.
- District conducts contract tracing of students and notifies students who should be placed in quarantine.
- District updates the district dashboard on a daily basis which will include information on number of positive cases and absences related to COVID.
Waukesha County COVID dashboard has community, county data
Visit the Waukesha County COVID dashboard for data about community and county cases. Please note that “Active Child Cases in School District Boundaries” reports the number of individuals ages 0-18 who reside “within school district boundaries.” This number is not just students who attend schools in the district but also those who may attend another public or private school, are home schooled, have already graduated or are preschoolers.
