What is Equity2020? HPS Equity 2020
As a Hartford Public School system parent/guardian, we cherish your active participation with school and district events that encourage family unity and cultural diversity.
Please "click" on links below to obtain more information on specific ways you can be actively involved as a Hartford Public Schools parent/guardian.
The Board of Education and the Hartford Public Schools would like to cordially invite you to our Inaugural Back to School Attendance Awareness Community Day and Basketball Jam at Bulkeley High School on August 19, 2017, from 10 AM to 5 PM. This event is to welcome students, families, and staff back to school, while promoting September as Attendance Awareness Month. The theme for this year’s event will be #HARTFORDrePRESENT. The hashtag will help us promote good attendance habits and will help us educate our community about how important good attendance habits are to secondary and post-secondary educational success, as well as becoming productive citizens. It allows students to think about how to represent Hartford in a positive way while being “present” for school every day.
