On this page you will find information from Hartford Public Schools about COVID-related updates, as well as information about our efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 at Classical and in our community. Click HERE to read the most recent letter from Principal Sullivan regarding positive COVID-19 cases at Classical Magnet.

"Classical families and staff have done an excellent job of staying home if you have any COVID-like symptoms and calling the school to report any confirmed cases. Our students are also doing a great job wearing masks all day, social distancing, and washing their hands frequently. As numbers increase in the state, please speak to your children about remaining diligent so we can stay safe and healthy."
