Visit Woodside Elementary School and the first thing you will notice is the warm, friendly nurturing environment that comes from staff and students. While it appears to be physically big, the school feels small and family-oriented because everyone cares, learns and grows together here. Our students understand our vision and live it in a kind and compassionate way each day. A strong academic foundation that stretches student learning coupled with well-rounded experiences prepares students to be productive future citizens and leaders.
Written notes no longer required if phone, email message sent
New this year, a written note is no longer required for normal daily absences when parents call or send emails notifying the school office. The Hamilton School Board made this change to simplify the normal daily absence notification process for families.
Schools prefer that parents report absences by calling the school attendance line at (262)820-1530 option 2 or emailing a message to WoodsideAttendance@hamilton.k12.wi.us.
A Family Vacation Request form must still be completed when students will be absent for a family vacation, and state law requires that written notices must be provided to the school office for absences for religious reasons.
