Project Tomorrow Speak Up
We are encouraging all teachers, students, employees and parents to participate in the annual Speak Up National Research Project, which provides participating schools, districts and non-profit organizations with a suite of online surveys and reports to collect authentic feedback from stakeholders on important education issues. Input from students, parents, teachers, administrators and community members will help create a vision for 21st century learning for our students. Survey results will be made available to educational leaders at the state and national level as well as our district.

Dear Parent/Guardian:

All students who ended the 2017-2018 school year in good standing, along with the students in the same household, are grandfathered in attending the Hammond Public Schools for the 2018-2019 school year.

When the 2018-2019 school year begins, SCH will start the process of updating its student enrollment records. More information will be distributed once school begins. A letter will be sent home with every student informing them of this process.

Please know that students new to Hammond for the 2018-2019 school year must live within the City of Hammond and provide two proofs of residency at the time of enrollment.

It is important to note according to Board Policy 5111, SCH has opted to end open enrollment. If your student was admitted to SCH prior to this decision being made, he or she has also been grandfathered along with other students in the same household. The only exception to this decision is for students who auditioned and are accepted into the Hammond Academy for Performing Arts (HAPA).

More information will be sent to your attention when it is available.


Estimado padre/tutor:

Todos los estudiantes que terminaron el año escolar 2017-2018 en buena situación, al igual que los estudiantes que vivan en el mismo hogar, están protegidos para asistir a las Escuelas Públicas de la Ciudad de Hammond para el año escolar 2018-2019. 

Cuando comience el año escolar 2018-2019, SCH comenzará el proceso de actualización de sus registros de inscripción de estudiantes. Se distribuirá más información una vez que comiencen las clases. Se les enviará una carta a casa con cada estudiante informándoles acerca de este proceso.

Tenga en cuenta por favor que los estudiantes nuevos en Hammond para el año escolar 2018-2019 deben vivir dentro de la Ciudad de Hammond y proporcionar dos comprobantes de residencia al momento de la inscripción.

Es importante tener en cuenta de acuerdo con la Política de la Junta 5111,  que SCH ha optado por finalizar la inscripción abierta. Si su estudiante fue admitido en SCH antes de que se tomó esta decisión, él o ella también han sido protegidos junto con otros estudiantes que viven en el mismo hogar. La única excepción a esta decisión es para los estudiantes que audicionaron y son aceptados en la Academia para las Artes Escénicas de Hammond (HAPA).

Se le enviará más información cuando esté disponible.
