The first day of school this year will be Monday, September 11 at Hartford Public Schools. The district has to bump the start date back a week due to ongoing construction. It tells us renovation work at Woodside Elementary has taken longer than anticipated due to the scope of the project expanding and some unexpected problems. The work is the result of a bond proposal approved in 2014. The original first day of classes at Hartford Public Schools had been Tuesday, September 5. Now, it’s September 11. Anyone with additional questions should contact their individual school’s principal.
