 Dear Hampton Academy Families,

             Hampton Academy staff set high expectations for student achievement, as well as safe behavior in all aspects of each student’s program at this school. Parents are encouraged to contact their child’s teacher(s) to maintain close communication about individual progress. A teacher conference can be scheduled by contacting your student’s homeroom teacher. We would just like to remind you that Power Hour Homework Club, After School Academic Assistance and Extended Day programs continue to meet.  Success in homework practice is a great predictor of overall academic achievement.

 It is important that family contact information be updated in the event of school cancellation or early dismissal during winter months. If your phone number(s) or e-mail information has changed since the beginning of the year, we ask that you contact the school immediately to update information.  We will continue to use the School Messenger system to keep you informed of school events and/or closures. 

This is the time of year, when traditionally, there is a lot of sickness in the school population, including strep throat, colds, flu, earaches and acute asthma episodes.  If your child is ill, please keep him/her home during the acute phase of illness and add an extra day for full recovery.  This is best for your child and his/her classmates.  Additionally, this is a good time of year to schedule your child’s physical for the spring and summer, especially if he or she will be attending summer camps. High school sports physicals must be dated after June 1, 2020.  Please check with your physician’s office for the most recent examination date and plan accordingly. Completed examination records are kept in student health files. If you have any questions or need further clarifications, please call our school nurse, Karen Brand.

Our eighth-grade students and staff continue to raise funds for their end of year activities. We would like to thank all of the families who have participated in and contributed to our fundraising efforts. Please join us on Thursday, February 20, at 6:30, in the dining hall to meet our tour guides and answer any questions you have about our trip to Washington DC.  

Upcoming events are listed below.  More school, academic, and educational resources can be found on our school website,  or call 926-2000 if you have any questions or concerns about a school program.

Hampton Academy's mission is to provide an environment where all students are encouraged to reach their academic, artistic, social and physical potential in order to become productive citizens in an ever-changing world.  This mission is best achieved when staff, families, and community share the responsibility of educating our adolescents during their middle school years.
