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 by calling your child’s school to have your information updated.

To have your phone number removed from our system, please use complete the form above and click “submit.”

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