We are VERY excited about continuing the 45-15 calendar that will begin it’s sixth year on July 19, 2018. 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 or the Y Surround Care.

-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 bburns@lacrossesd.org, or call me at 608-789-7695.
