School Notifications by Telephone

School Messenger®, a telephone messaging service throughout Hartford Public Schools, is now active.
 It automatically alerts student families about important, time-sensitive information.

It is important that your school have all of your current telephone numbers so that you will not miss out on any important communications. If you have a new phone number or have not supplied one to your child or children's school(s), please do so right away.

Learn more by downloading our letter to parents and guardians / carta a los padres en Español.

This simple and useful communications tool is just another example of our commitment to keeping students' families engaged in the education process.
