    Locker Clean Out and Returning School Materials
    Posted on 05/29/2020

    Dear Hamilton Families,
     
    I hope this message find you safe and well. As we approach the end of the year, we want to make sure that each student has an opportunity to retrieve items left in their lockers as well as return any school materials (except laptops) they may still have in their possession. 
     
    To do this, we will be allowing pickup/drop-off of these materials in the afternoons of June 8th and 9th. School staff will empty the contents of student lockers into plastic bags and will distribute these bags to families outside of the gym entrance on Densmore Avenue (closest entrance to Wallingford Playfield).   

    Arriving by car: 

    • Please approach the school via 42nd Street and line up behind any other waiting cars.
    • Please roll down your window and a staff member will ask for the student's name and will radio the information inside to retrieve the bag.
    • At that point, you can pull forward into a waiting area while your bag is brought to the sidewalk near your car.
    • Please place any items to return to school in the bin, i.e. library books, textbooks, class novels, calculators, or other borrowed materials.

    Arriving on foot/bike/scooter/etc.: 

    • Please approach from the direction of Wallingford Playfield.
    • Maintain at least 6ft. between any others in line
    • Give your name to the staff member who will radio the information inside to retrieve the bag.
    • Once the staff member brings the bag and moves away, you can retrieve it.
    • Please place any items to return to school in the bin, i.e. library books, textbooks, class novels, calculators, or other borrowed materials. 

    Distribution Dates and Times: 

    Monday, June 8th
    1pm-3pm Students whose last names start with A-D
    3pm – 5pm Students whose last names start with E-K 

    Tuesday, June 9th
    1pm-3pm Students whose last names start with L-Q
    3pm-5pm Students whose last names start with R-Z 

    Wednesday, June 10th
    10am-12pm Students with shared lockers or those who could not make other times. 
     

    Shared Locker Pick-up/Last Chance Pick-up 

    • If your student shares a locker with another student, please come on Wednesday morning in order to retrieve your student’s items.
    • Please come into the gym lobby.
    • We will have gloves and space available for your student to identify their materials and separate them from their locker partner's.
    • Please wear a mask.
    • There will be a sign in/out for anyone who comes at this time.

    If you are unable to make any of the above times, please reach out to our security specialist, Mr. Hawk, at hkmccalliste@seattleschools.org or 206-252-5842 to arrange a time for pick up after June 10th.
     

    Family Support:

    We want to be sure that all our kids have full access to a computer, so they can get the benefit all the programming and materials that the District and Hamilton has to offer. We have plenty of laptops here at Hamilton to lend to students, so if it would help your family to have a dedicated District laptop for your student to use, please contact 206-252-5812. Don’t be shy about asking, because we really should have enough computers to get one to every student who needs one!
    We also recognize that this season has created lots of new financial challenges for families. If your family is having trouble getting the school supplies you need, or if your family is in need of help with utilities or food or paying for other basic needs, please call 206-252-5812 and leave your name, child’s name, grade-level, and the best way for us to contact you, and we will do our best to connect you with resources. Also, if an online survey is more convenient, please feel free to click on and respond to the following “Needs Support for Families” LINK.
