Hartford Public Schools Spring 2021: Culture, Climate, and Equity Survey

Dear HPS Families,

We care deeply about each of you. We are committed to partnering with you to ensure high-quality learning and supports for every student.

As we come to the end of this school year we are asking that all our students, parents, guardians, and staff submit our HPS Spring 2021: Culture, Climate, and Equity Survey by June 16, 2021.

Your contribution is important to us! Your feedback will help highlight positive examples of welcoming and nurturing experiences in our schools, identify areas where growth is needed, and together inform our planning for the future. Your responses will remain anonymous. The survey should take about 7-10 minutes to complete.

You will need your child’s school ID (lunch number) to submit your survey. When you are ready, click here to submit! https://hartfordschools.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5zLP6jgy0i8jVLo

If you have any questions, please contact your school directly. Thank you for your continued partnership and support.

8th grade graduation - Tuesday, June 15 at 10 am (CHANGED TO INDOOR)!

Due to the weather forecast, we will be switching the ceremony to inside, which will be held in the gym. There are no limits to the number of family members you are bringing, but masks and social distancing are mandatory, and we will set up the chairs so that families can space out from other families. We will still be live streaming the event so if you are not comfortable with attending in person, you are welcome to watch remotely instead. The doors will be opening at 9:30 am so please do not arrive before 9:30 am - we will not be letting families into the building until 9:30 am. And you will enter the front doors, be asked to complete a short COVID health paper questionnaire before you are allowed to head to the gym. After the ceremony, we invite you to the cafe for a short time for cupcakes and punch before you leave. We would ask that you do not congregate in the cafe for long due to social distancing. You will then take your 8th grader home at that time - they do not stay at school in the afternoon and they also do not attend school on Wednesday. We are very excited to celebrate our 8th graders tomorrow - thanks for your flexibility and patience as we change plans. If you have any questions, please reach out to me via phone or email. Thanks!


Here is the live stream link which is also in Google Classrooms. You need a google account (like a gmail) to log in. https://stream.meet.google.com/stream/4e373900-cf9b-49a4-aacc-21ed187fda9b


Wed, June 16 is the LAST day of School (and 12:40 pm dismissal)!!!!

We can’t believe it - so proud of all of our students, staff and families who worked together and persevered through such a challenging school year! Thanks for all your support #BreakthroughStrong - We Are Stronger Together!

HPS Device Information

If your child is leaving HPS and your child has a district device, it must be returned to school by June 16. Remote students: If your child is staying at Breakthrough South next year (or going to another HPS school next year), your child can keep the device over the summer and bring it back in August when school starts. We are collecting the iPads from all PreK4 students because they will be getting chromebooks next year in K. Any questions about devices? Please email Ms. Baniak at BANIE001@hartfordschools.org.

PTO Popcorn Fundraiser

The popcorn orders were supposed to arrive Friday, June 11 but did not - hopefully they will arrive Monday. We will let you know when they are ready to be picked up. Any questions? Contact Mrs. Gardner at 860-695-5748.

Attendance Prizes for remote students

Our whole school won an attendance contest for reducing our chronic absenteeism numbers. If your child is remote, you can come pick up the attendance prize from the main office between 9 am - 2 pm.
