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
