Hamden Hall Country Day School

Educating students in PreSchool through Grade 12
Hamden Hall is proud to be a leader in educational excellence. Our Reopening Plan for the 2020-2021 school year has been heralded by our current families, and our priority continues to be providing a myriad of learning experiences and opportunities to our students amid a healthy and safe environment. Together – because of your previous and ongoing support – we have been able to implement and offer the following initiatives and programming this school year:

  • Devised campus scenarios for our students and teachers to utilize all buildings and learning spaces. The use of Whitney Avenue, Skiff Street, and Davis Street reduces overall density and the number of students in a class. This included significant internal modifications to several buildings and classrooms.
  • Hired additional faculty to accommodate three campuses and smaller classroom settings.
  • Met the increased demand for need-based financial aid for students adversely affected by the pandemic.
  • Continued to grow our academic and extracurricular programs.
  • Invested significantly in technology upgrades to equip classrooms with webcams and microphones designed to focus on the board and teacher, allowing remote students access to education.
  • Ensured overall cleanliness of campuses and germ mitigation via three UV machines, implementation of hygienic protocols, and more.
  • Partnered with FLIK Dining Services to safely deliver high quality food choices for lunch.
  • Prepared all sections of our campuses to allow for proper social distancing including installation of multiple tents for regular outdoor breaks and learning spaces.
  • Modified ventilation systems to accommodate all recommended safety guidelines as well as installation of MERV-13 filters in all HVAC systems.

As you can see, your donation to our school community makes a difference. Please consider this year renewing your commitment or increasing your contribution over your previous gift. Together – we can ensure that Hamden Hall remains an exceptional institution with great rewards for all who embrace our academic program.
