Principal's Message

Message from Principal Lamanteer

Hello Hess Hornets and Families:

This is principal Lamanteer. I hope this message finds everyone well.  Please know that all school and district personnel continue to work to make this unprecedented transition as smooth as possible for the  families of Hamilton Township. I encourage you to continue to reach out to your child’s teachers via email. Also, for important district information continue to check the district website at www.hamiltonschools.org for the most recent updates from Superintendent Vogel.  Your child’s teachers will also be reaching out to you by phone.  You can also reach out to the administrative team by emailing Mr. Neff, (neffd@hamiltonschools.org) Mrs. Bluth (bluthc@hamiltonschools.org) or me ( lamanteerm@hamiltonschools.org ).  Our goal is to maintain open lines of communication to continue  our partnership with you in the education of your children. And, also to let you know… we are still here, working on behalf of the children of Hamilton Township and the Hess School. 

Be well and be safe. . . 


Melanie Lamanteer

At the July, 2017 Hamilton Township Board of Education meeting, the Board approved a new Transportation Policy 8605 –Requirements to Meet Students at Bus Stop. This policy provides for the following:

  • All preschool, kindergarten, first grade, and second grade students must be met at the bus stop by a person who will be taking responsibility for that student as they depart the bus in the afternoon.
  • Any person who will be taking responsibility for the student must be age 12 or older.
  • The parent/guardian of any student in grades three through eight who rides a special needs van may request that their student not be dropped off without a responsible person meeting them by contacting the Transportation Department
