Dear Hampton Academy Parents and Students,

             We hope you had a relaxing break and enjoyable Thanksgiving.  We would like to begin by thanking you for attending our parent conferences.  If you have not had an opportunity to meet with your child’s teachers, we ask that you contact the school so you can review progress to date.  We encourage you to maintain an open line of communication throughout the school year.  If you need to contact staff after hours, you are welcome to email or leave a message on our voicemail system.  These venues are available 24 hours a day. The first trimester ends Friday, November 30.  Report cards will be available online Monday, December 10. 

Please remember to keep your family’s childcare plans and emergency contact information updated in the event of an unanticipated early dismissal during the unpredictable winter weather months.  Also, please review the Hampton School District Handbook and website for information regarding school closings and early dismissal procedures.  

We ask all drivers to use extra care and caution, particularly in or near our student drop off loop, as snow, ice and speed are elements that increase potential dangers.  For the safety of our students and staff, the drop off loop is the only safe and supervised drop off area for students

Our school nurse, Mrs. Brand, would like to remind families that with the cold and flu season upon us, it is important to keep your child home if he or she is ill.  If they have a fever, children should not return to school until they have been fever free for 24 hours (without the use of medication). A fever is considered high when body temperature is greater than 100 degrees. Please remind your child to wash hands frequently, get a good night sleep, eat healthy meals and drink plenty of water.  If you have any questions, please call Mrs. Brand at 926-2000.  

As you are probably aware, we are offering an afternoon academic/homework assistance program.  The program meets on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday for all grade levels.  There is a late bus available.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak with your child’s teachers, guidance counselor, or school administration. 

We hope you will join us for our holiday band and chorus concert on Monday, December 10, at the Winnacunnet High School auditorium.  The band will perform at 6:00 PM and the chorus at 7:15 PM. 

The Student Council is collecting winter hats, gloves, mittens, socks, scarves, and winter coats from December 3-17.  All items can be dropped off at the school office.

On behalf of the Hampton Academy staff, Ms. DeVylder and I would like to wish you and your family a happy, healthy, holiday season.  Dismissal for the winter break is Friday, December 21, at 11:30 AM.  Students return on Wednesday, January 2, 2019.

 Sincerely,

 David O’Connor, Principal                                                        Anna DeVylder, Assistant Principal

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.
