Welcome Message from Executive Principal Glynis Richardson

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Community Partners,

Welcome to the new school year! Thank you for entrusting us with your son’s/daughter’s high school career. In May 2019, our Superintendent of Hartford Public Schools, Dr. Leslie Torres-Rodriquez, with Board approval, appointed me as the Executive Principal at Weaver High School. In this role, I have managerial oversight of the entire school campus (which includes Kinsella Magnet High School) as well as the principalship of Weaver High School. Since my appointment, I have been working diligently to ensure that the Weaver Community, with a priority on student success, is ready for the grand re-opening of our beloved school.

Although I moved to the greater Hartford area nearly two years ago, I have been in education for nearly twenty-five years. Most recently, I have been engaged in developing school leaders across the country. As I settle into Hartford, I am deeply appreciative of how this strong community has advocated for our students and embraced me into it. I am honored to take on this great opportunity as we transition into the new building.

To address the academic and socio-emotional needs of all our students, staff has collaborated to develop a comprehensive and strategic school improvement plan of the following actions:

  • Instruction aligned to grade level standards to advance students academically
  • Student centered instruction with learning programs and activities to address and meet our students at their various levels
  • Opportunities for extended learning to support individualized socio-academic needs
  • Enrichment activities designed to expose and engage our students with college and career activities/opportunities, and real-life work experiences

We are gearing up for a great school opening and year guided by the following behavioral expectations:

  • We work together and support each other.
  • We are always prepared to do our best.
  • We own and learn from our mistakes.
  • We embrace productive struggles.
  • We respect and accept our differences.
  • We respectively consult before we confront.

As we prepare for a great school year, please re-enforce the importance of a positive mindset, regular school attendance, and a daily focus on schoolwork as a family. Also, please review the enclosed materials regarding attendance and school uniforms. We will see you on August 27, 2019 at 7:05 am (breakfast time) for the opening of school!

Respectfully,

Glynis Richardson
