The West Hartford Board of Education has voted to cancel school on Tuesday, April 28, 2020 for the primary elections. Many of our schools are also polling places, and with our security protocols, it would be inappropriate to have school in session while voters are coming into the building. The new last day of school is now June 12.

Real Kids Wear Pink - October 25, 2019

Mothers, fathers, aunts, grandmas, and friends – nearly every one of us knows someone who has been impacted by breast cancer. But can kids really make a difference in fighting this disease? YES!

Real Kids Wear Pink brings together schools, sports teams, clubs, and organizations and gives kids a chance to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. Launched in 2017 in Albany, NY, the Real Kids movement has been helping kids get involved in the fight against breast cancer, by raising funds and awareness – and by wearing PINK on Friday, October 25 – the official 2019 Real Kids Wear Pink Day!

"Public Act 16-189

We believe that it is vital for all students in West Hartford Public Schools to be able to efficiently and effectively use digital tools that empower them in all phases of the learning process, including research, problem solving, content creation, communication, and collaboration. We also believe that we must be committed at all times to protecting students' privacy and providing them with a powerful and safe educational experience. To that end, the West Hartford Public Schools follow the legal requirements of Public Act 16-189 to promote the safety and security of all students and staff.

In compliance with Connecticut State Law, we update online programs used within the district that house student data. The programs may be used district-wide, in a very small number of classrooms, or with individual students. The list will be updated each time the district enters into a new contract where student data is housed. For more information on the specifics of Public Act 16-189 and updates of vendor agreements, visit www.whps.org/pa189."

KP West Hartford Foundation Grants

Please check out the grants awarded to our staff from the Foundation for West Hartford Public Schools. We are grateful for the funding and for the teachers who take the time to write grant requests to support our students.
