Welcome to Hartford School!

Mr. Marques Stanard
Principal

The Mount Laurel Hartford School is home to approximately 925 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.


FIELD DAY 2017

FIELD DAY is Friday, October 13th. If you would like to order a Field Day T-Shirt for your child, the order form is available under the "Flyers/Forms" tab of the website.

What's For Lunch, You Ask?

T
With the new school year underway, the burning question is "What's For Lunch"?
 
We're glad you asked. It gives us a chance to brag about our new interactive Cafeteria Menu. Breakfast and Lunch Menus are all in one place, and all schools are accessible through a drop-down menu.
 
Hold your cursor over any item in bold and its complete nutritional value will pop up. Use the button on the top-right of the page to get Carb Counts on all menu items.
 
It's a big step in our shared goal of keeping students healthy as well as wise!
 
 
What are you doing on September 25?
Come play golf and raise money for Mount Laurel Schools. You and your foursome will compete for prizes in a scramble-style golf tournament at Ron Jaworski’s new Ramblewood Country Club. The Mount Laurel Public Education Fund, Inc. is an independent non-profit corporation formed in 1994. The Fund is governed by a Board of Trustees comprised of volunteers from a broad spectrum of the Mount Laurel community. Since its inception, the Fund has donated over $800,000 to Mount Laurel’s eight elementary schools. Here's more information. 

SPECIAL EDUCATION PARENT ADVISORY COMMITTEE

The Mount Laurel Special Education Parent Advisory Committee is seeking to increase parent membership from each of our district schools.  Parent representatives will assist the district in planning parent workshops.  In addition, members will serve as a liaison between district administrators and community members in order to support students with special needs.

If you are interested in joining the committee, please contact Dr. Diane Willard for additional information at dwillard@mtlaurelschools.org

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.

All necessary forms can be obtained at the school or by clicking below:

Please note that these forms are valid for one calendar year from the date of the exam, and not the date that 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. Click here Health History Update.pdf
