Project creates modern learning spaces
Modern learning spaces have been created in key areas at Hamburg High School and Middle School as a result of the Hamburg Central School District’s recent capital project. Click here to see a new video that highlights renovations of the Library Media Centers and Family & Consumer Sciences rooms to create spaces that are learner-centered. Bright and sleek, with better functionality, these spaces are flexible, provide areas for movement, and promote collaboration and inquiry.
This is the third video in a series that “tells the Hamburg Schools story.”

You spoke…we listened. Many parents have told us that they prefer to receive school notifications via text message or email instead of automated phone calls. So, this school year, the district is relying less on “robo calls” to relay certain information and more on text/email through service provider SchoolMessenger. Parents: The district must have your correct cell phone number and/or email address on file in order for you to receive notifications. Additionally, to receive texts, you must take the extra step of opting-in.
