Welcome to Hartford School!

Mr. Marques Stanard
Principal

The Mount Laurel Hartford School is home to approximately 980 students in Grades 5 and 6, and 125 staff members, each school day. Daily instruction in the curriculum areas is enhanced at Hartford School through special curricular projects conducted at both the fifth and sixth-grade levels during the course of the school year. Students increase academic skills through participation in curriculum-related clubs such as the Technology Club, and the Homework Clubs.

Teachers who helped plan the educational program for our school remain committed to guiding our student body towards the attainment of high educational goals. The Mount Laurel Hartford School benefits greatly from the network of support built and consistently maintained by parents and community members. Our Parent-Teacher Organization has assisted with many school projects, and its members give generously of their time through volunteer efforts.

Hartford School Clubs List

Sports Physicals Procedures

All students who participate in intramural school sports (basketball, cross country, fitness, kickball, orienteering, wiffle ball, yoga) must have on file in the Health Office a physical exam done within 12 months of the start of the sport. This exam must be completed on the State Department of Education’s Approved Pre-Participation Physical Examination Form. (Have your child check with the school nurse if you think a current physical is on file here).

Once these forms are received at Hartford, they then need to go to our school physician for clearance. This process may take up to TWO WEEKS. Your child will not be able to participate in the club until he/she is cleared by our school physician.

These forms can be obtained at school by clicking on the link on the right side of this page “Grade 5-8 Physical Form”

***These forms are valid for ONE CALENDAR YEAR from the DATE OF THE EXAM --- NOT FROM THE DATE THE FORMS WERE FILLED OUT

If your child’s physical exam was done more than 90 days before the start of the sport, a separate Health History Update Questionnaire must be completed. (Link is on right side of this page.)

morning drop-off and bus transportation Information

  Students are expected to travel to and from school on their assigned bus. If you choose to drive your child to school, please do so after 7:45 a.m. as supervision is not available until that time. 
If your child wishes to go to another student’s home, please make arrangements to transport your child after school hours. The district’s responsibility is to transport students to and from their home. Please do not request your child ride a different bus. If an emergency arises, you may make an emergency request in writing to the principal the morning of. Approval is contingent on space on the requested bus. The note should include the date and reason, and parent signature. We also require a note from the adult whose home your child is being transported.
