LEAD LEARNER HIGHLIGHTS
Although the Fall season isn't sure if it wants to arrive, we are moving through the first quarter of the school year. Almost all of our clubs are up and running. We hope that your child has found something of interest to join. If not, please review the activities list (click here) and encourage their involvement.
We've had another amazing week of learning, and I hope that you've connected with your child's team and have a clear sense of what they are learning and have had opportunities to talk with them about their learning and progress. Teams are starting to send out invitations for our fall conferences which are student-led. This is an opportunity for students to take center stage in discussing their progress and their goals moving forward.
Please be sure to take a look at the announcements below for our upcoming Color Run, the lost and found table, Nurse news, and community events around the corner.

Vacant Seat Program Application Process is Open
The West Hartford Public Schools vacant seat program utilizes available space on school buses. This program allows students to ride buses, where space is available, who under the West Hartford Public Schools Transportation policy are not eligible for transportation. No additional bus stops are added to the routes for this program. Interested parents should contact the West Hartford Public Schools Transportation Office at (860)561-6647 for additional information. Requests are taken in this office by telephone on a first come, first served basis starting at 8:00a.m.

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."
