On behalf of the staff of Hartford School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2020-21 school year! We are looking forward to a productive parnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential.  Although this year is unlike any other we have experienced, we embark on this journey with a pledge to you, our students and parents, that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful, and rigorous work whether as a hybrid student in our classrooms, or working remotely at home. 
We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child's education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children's success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child's learning by ensuring that he/she:
-- Attends school daily and arrives on time, prepared and ready for the day's learning experience.
-- Completes all homework assignments and projects given by teachers.
-- shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life.
-- Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject.
We continue to build upon and refine our proven foundation of good work, community service and continued excellence in education. We are made up of a diverse group of staff and students who bring assorted experiences and perspectives to our school. To celebrate our diverse make-up, our ongoing theme is:
Hartford School CommUNITY ... Sharing Our Similarities ... Celebrating Our Differences
Our staff of highly-qualified professional educators and support personnel is committed to providing our students many opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom. We invite and encourage students and parents to work in partnership with us.
Please know that we highly value home/school communication. It is vital and plays an integral role in each student's success. We encourage you to contact us if the need arises, and to stay in the know about your child's studies, assignments, assessments and school activities, as well as other events and happenings. Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter to see all of the wonderful and innovative things happening in our classrooms.
Again, we welcome you to Hartford School and to our wonderful learning community. Our school is a place alive with much energy, enthusiasm, a high standard of excellence and where opportunities abound! Here's to an awesome new school year as we work together to make Hartford a great place to work and learn each day!
