We Need Your Application!
We need every family to fill out the "More than a Meal (lunch) Application!" Our schoolwide Title I funding for supplemental programs and positions depends on it!

Even if you don't qualify for free or reduced lunch, you still need to complete an application.

You can complete the application through your PASSport Account or by clicking here . You can get assistance with the online application or complete a paper application in our Parent Center (Room 109).

Tardy Notifications
We are aware that some parents of students who travel to school on an LAUSD school bus are receiving automated phone calls indicating that their student arrived late. We are working with the transportation department and classroom teachers to lessen the number of calls you are receiving. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
Special Education Validation Review
The special education department will be going through the mandated District Validation Review on November 6th and 7th to monitor special education programs at Hamilton. If you have a child who receives special education services, you will have to complete a parent survey and return it to the student case carrier as soon as it is completed. The Special education Department thanks you for sharing your input and for your participation in the DVR Process
