Meeting slated for incoming intermediate school parents

It is an exciting time for families of current Hamilton School District fourth- and fifth-graders who will be the first students to attend Silver Spring Intermediate School in the fall. Online registration for Silver Spring students begins Feb. 25. In anticipation of questions families may have before registration, parent and student meetings have been scheduled.

Parent Meeting
Feb. 19 beginning at 6 p.m.
Hamilton Fine Arts Center

Topics to be covered include the house structure, schedule, lunch, report cards and grading. Following the presentation, parents will have the opportunity to submit questions online that will be answered in a FAQ sheet and emailed later to families.

In addition to the parent meeting, school staff have set up the following schedule to meet with fourth- and fifth-graders to answer their questions:

  • Lannon – Feb. 22 – 12:10 p.m.
  • Maple – Feb. 22 – 9:15 a.m.

More information including a Silver Spring School and Course Selection booklet and step-by-step registration instructions will be sent to families the week of Feb. 18.

Drop off and pick up reminders

When using the quick drop off lane in the morning or afternoon, please do not bypass buses that are lined up to get in to school. Please line up behind the buses and wait for them to move forward. Here are the complete Maple Avenue pick up, drop off and parking guidelines.

Students need to bring winter gear

A reminder to families that as the temperature continues to drop, students are required to wear winter coats, hats, and waterproof gloves. Knit gloves, although convenient, do not provide protection against cold temperatures and wet snow. Boots and snow pants will be required as soon as we get measurable snow on the ground. Now is a good time to start looking through your winter gear to see if new sizes are needed. Thank you for keeping our students safe and warm.
