Virtual Learning Program Update

Hamilton is looking forward to fully reopening with in-person learning for all students in every grade, every day for the 2021-22 school year.

Though most of our students will return to their classrooms, we recognize that some students have thrived in the virtual setting. To support this need, City Schools will offer a virtual learning program for the 2021-22 school year. The program will serve about 2000 students in kindergarten to 12th grade. This is a separate program from Hamilton Elementary Middle School. This will be offered by City Schools. Students who apply will make a one-year commitment to the virtual program. 

The application is only available on Campus Portal - you must have an account to access the application.  If you do not have a Campus Portal account, visit https://www.baltimorecityschools.org/campus-portal for directions on setting up your account. The window to enroll is July 6- July 16, 2021.  Again, Hamilton will be fully in-person next school year. The only virtual option is through City Schools.   

Class Assignments/Schedules

Class assignments will be available the week of August 23rd. Classroom schedules will be posted on our website the week of August 23rd.

School Bell Schedule

Our bell schedule has changed this year.  Students must be in school by 7:30 a.m.  We dismiss at 2:10 p.m.  

 

Back to School - Block Party

We invite you to attend our Back to School Party on Aug 15, 2021, from 2 p.m.- 5 p.m. We will have games, raffles, school supplies, face painting, balloon animals, and more!

 

We will continue to provide monthly updates throughout the summer. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. We are so excited to welcome back our Hamilton Hawks back on Aug 30, 2021.

 

If you have any questions, please call us at 410-396-6375 between 8: 30 a.m.- 2: 30 p.m. or email us. If you leave a phone message we will be sure to respond back to you within 48 hours.
