Dear HMTCA Very Important Parents- VIP's,

I hope this letter finds you well, considering the circumstances. We are here for you, we miss your children terribly and we miss seeing them with their friends!

Attached please find very important documents that explain the HMTCA Continuation of Learning Plan, the new schedule and the Google Classroom Codes for our school.

As we enter the fourth marking period, which will be considered Pass/Fail, we appreciate your partnership in supporting your child in showing a high level of ambition and focus on their studies. This schedule begins on Monday, March 30th and remains in effect until further notice.

Please be aware that the Welcome Back to School Letter, Schedule, and Google Classroom Codes (located below this letter) contain a lot of information and will be important references not only for you but for your child. Please share this letter with them. Your teachers already have been or are reaching out to your children to get them excited for this new moment in the history of HMTCA, our nation and the world.

We are hopeful that together we will use this challenge as an opportunity to get stronger in new online learning skills as your child continues to learn and grow.

Stay Strong and Be Well,

Mrs. Goldstein

P.S. Please email me if you would like to receive this letter en Espanol

The winter weather season is once again upon us and with it comes the potential for school closures, delays, and early dismissals.

Typically, we review weather forecasts continuously, from the day before a storm until the early morning hours of the following day before making a decision. At approximately 3:00 PM, we begin consulting with the Hartford Police Department and the Hartford Department of Public Works to assess road conditions.

We usually determine whether to have a late opening or a school closing by no later than 5:30 AM. The announcement is immediately relayed to parents and staff by way of a School Messenger call and text message. We will also activate the Hartford Public Schools SNOW LINE number – 860-695-SNOW (860-695-7669) so that parents and staff can call to learn whether schools are open or closed. In addition, we will also inform the local television and radio news media outlets and posts the announcement on the district website: Hartford Schools Website.

In the event schools have to be dismissed early due to deteriorating weather conditions, schools will be notified by 10:00 AM and they will follow a tiered dismissal schedule posted on the Hartford Public Schools website. Parents will also receive a School Messenger call for early dismissal. In these situations, families should monitor their phones, radio and television stations to be aware of early closings.

When school is canceled, all activities and meetings for the day are also canceled. The decision to delay, cancel or dismiss school early is never easy, but it is made thoughtfully to keep our students and staff safe.

If you have any questions regarding Inclement weather procedures, please do not hesitate to contact my office at 860-695-8729
