Message to Families about Incident at Weaver High School

Dear Families,

I care so deeply about each student attending our schools. This is a difficult time for the entire Hartford Public Schools community.

The two young men who were involved, as well as their families, are in my thoughts, as are all of our HPS students, faculty, and staff that witnessed and responded to the incident.

I visited the young man and his family in the hospital yesterday and again early this morning. I continue to pray for his speedy recovery.

Additional security, including Hartford Police, will be present for the remainder of the week. We remain committed to maintaining a safe environment for all of our students and staff, including:

  • HPD presence at arrival and during dismissal.
  • An increase in the number of school safety officers.
  • Additional counselors and school social workers will be at the Weaver Campus for students, staff, and families.
We take the safety of everyone in our buildings very seriously. We will continue to engage with our students, staff, families, and community partners through this experience.

Please feel free to contact the school directly if you have any questions or concerns: 860-695-1641.
