Lead Learner Highlights

This week has been filled with sounds of music with 7th and 8th-grade concerts, learning exhibits with the Middle School QuEST Fair, and a reminder about what it means for our Character to Count the Anti-Defamation League Step UP Assembly for 6th and 7th-grade students.

End of Year Reminders

Cell Phones: Our goal is to minimize distractions to the school day. To do this, we ask students to refrain from using/openly carrying their device during the day. Please speak to your child about keeping their device in their pocket or their locker unless a teacher gives them permission to use it for an educational purpose. As a parent or caregiver, we ask that you refrain from texting your child during the school day. If you need to reach your child, please call the main office at 860-233-8230.

Obligation Notices were sent home for students who owe books or cafeteria books. We would appreciate any support you can give to return or pay for items.

Dress Code Guidelines: As the weather turns warm once again, we ask that you review the dress code guidelines with students. We always ask students to have an extra outfit to change into if needed, so they do not have to disturb someone at home. Please see page 11 of the Student Handbook.

"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.
