The School District of La Crosse is offering free meals for those under 18 during closures.  Pick up from the school bus in front of Hamilton School between 11:45 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. Monday through Friday or click on for more information available.


We are VERY excited about continuing the 45-15 calendar that will begin it’s seventh year on July 18, 2019. This innovative schedule uses the same number of days as the rest of the district but disperses them more evenly throughout the year. All “days off” for the rest of the district have been built into our schedule including the longer winter and spring breaks. Between quarters (intersessions), students will be able to register for optional afternoon care through the Boys and Girls Club.

-same number of school days (just spread out more evenly)
-all of the breaks for the rest of the district align with ours
-during our 15 day breaks (intersessions), care will be available when the rest of the district is in session
-increased student achievement by providing timely intersession help

At Hamilton, we have a very committed professional staff interested in helping all students learn. We believe educators are here to assist you with the academic, social, and recreational development of your child(ren). We believe our children benefit most when educators and parents work together.

We hope you will find the information on this website informative. If you have additional questions please feel free to stop in, email me at, or call me at 608-789-7695.
