Hamilton Southeastern School District takes the safety of its students and staff seriously and fostering safe and supportive learning environments is a top priority across all our school buildings.
HSE works closely with school buildings, the Fishers Police Department and area law enforcement agencies to protect our students, teachers, school leaders, and staff and to prevent emergencies before they arise.
Please check your email (or spam folder) for your Safe Visitor Badge from Safe Visitor Solutions (Info@safevisitorsolutions.com).
