KP First Day Reminders
August 29, 2017
We are so excited for the First Day of School!
Reporting to School:
New Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures at KP
There will be a parking lane on the east side (school side) of King Philip Drive from Mohawk Drive to Lyman Road, the area shown in green will be signed for pick-up & drop-off. However, the entire parking lane can be used if needed. No pick-up or drop-off will be allowed on the west side of King Philip Drive.
Updated Cell Phone Policy - Minimizing Distractions
Students are not permitted to carry their cell phones during the school day. Students may not have a cell phone on them at any time during the school day UNLESS a teacher has specifically directed them to bring it to class. Students are expected to power down their cell phones and secure them in their locker for the duration of the school day. This will ensure the devices are safe. Any student in violation of the cell phone policy will have their cell phone confiscated, and he or she will be referred to administration.
If a parent/caregiver needs to reach a student or convey a message, please call the main office at 860-233-8230.

"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.
