Welcome to kindergarten at Hammond Elementary School! We are looking forward to getting to know all of you and welcoming your kindergartener into the HES family! To that end, we are providing several playdates over the summer. We invite you to come and meet other kindergarteners and their families. The whole family is invited to come out and join us! Because the summer months can be pretty hot, we will meet at Hammond Park (10700 Glen Hannah Drive, Laurel, 20723) rather than at the school playground because there is more shade. Feel free to join us as often as you can! Please sign up below as you know which playdates will work for your schedule so we'll know who to look for. Signing up also allows you to get an email reminder two days before the playdate. We look forward to seeing you this summer! HES Play Dates - Click Here to Participate!
Dear Hammond Elementary Families,
In August of 2018, HCPSS will open Elementary School #42 in Hanover, MD, making an attendance area adjustment necessary. Additionally, overcrowding in Eastern Howard County is prompting county wide attendance area adjustments at all school levels. The initial study was presented to the Board of Education on June 22, 2017. Attendance areas in this proposal do not include any changes for Hammond Elementary or Hammond Middle Schools. However, both Atholton and Hammond High Schools have attendance area adjustments that will impact families at HES.
Below you will find summaries and detailed documents regarding the proposed changes. Please review them and consider providing input via the survey. At the Hammond Elementary PTA website, you will find links to these documents and detailed information. Please check the website regularly for updates, as the process continues through mid-November. The website is hespta.org. Thank you!
