New information is in red.
The Hartford Jt. 1 School District will be closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.
During the next few weeks, the teachers will be allowed in the classroom on a rotation basis to gather students’ belongings from the lockers, desk and throughout their rooms. The belongings will be bagged and a set procedure in place so parents/guardians can drive to the building for curbside pick-up at each school. The scheduled dates for pick-up are May 18-22. Please see the recommended schedule below:
Monday, May 18, 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM: Last name beginning with letters A-H
Tuesday, May 19, 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM: Last name beginning with letters I-P
Wednesday, May 20, 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM: Last name beginning with letters Q-Z
Thursday, May 21, 2:00 - 6:00 PM: Families unable to pick up during scheduled times
Friday, May 22, 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM: Families unable to pick up during scheduled times
The health room staff will also have any remaining medicine still in the schools ready for the curbside pick-up with student belongings. Please leave a message at the appropriate school with any questions:
In June and July, there will be no in-building summer school; instead, a virtual option will be offered.
This summer school program, which starts in August, is still under review. If the current public health emergency continues into the summer, Jump Start instruction will be canceled or offered through virtual and online learning.
Orchestra & Band Instruments
Students can keep their musical instruments over the summer. Eighth grade students that have completed their lessons for the year can return their instrument during the curbside pick-up time.
Students will be allowed to keep and use their District-issued computers over the summer. If families are planning to move before the start of the new school year, contact the technology department at 262-670-1678 or by email at covid-tech-help[at]hjt1.org[dot] The eighth-grade computer collection will be scheduled in August.
Balances left in accounts will roll over for the next school year. Payments will automatically be refunded for families of eighth grade students unless there are younger siblings in the District. In this case, balances will roll over for the next school year. If you are requesting a refund of fees, please make the request by calling 262-673-9033 (you may have to leave a message) or by email to cindy[at]hjt1[dot]org.
End of Year Recognition Programs
Virtual end of the year recognition programs will take place. Student awards will be mailed or delivered after the ceremony.
Wisconsin Forward Exam
Individualized learning paths and teacher assigned lessons will be utilized using Exact Path K-8 for Reading, ELA, and Mathematics. In addition, teachers may leverage online formats they are already using with students for providing content and assignments such as Google classroom or curriculum programs that provide students with online materials.
Virtual students will maintain status quo for accessing online coursework and assignments.
Teachers may also assign hard copies of these learning packets for students to complete.
Special Education Services
Teachers will plan ahead to ensure students have appropriate accommodations required for the student to continue to access Virtual Learning if it is appropriate for services to be administered online.
Special educators will work with students and caregivers ahead of the Virtual Learning Time to clarify expectations for learning and how support will be offered prior to and on the day.
Special education services that cannot be provided virtually within a reasonable amount of time will be rescheduled.
Case managers should be available throughout the day to communicate with students and parents. They will let students and caregivers know that if the students could not engage in the learning for the day that they would make up the learning.
The District will provide a continuation of services to students upon their return to school.
Special educators will continue to provide learning activities and make contact with students and parents in a variety of ways. When school resumes, we will work together to discuss services and instruction for your child in accordance with the Department of Public Instruction guidance on specialized instruction due to extended closures of schools:

Emergency Closings Notifications
The School Emergency & Electronic Communications letter included with registration packets contains information to opt in for emergency text messages and emails from the District. A “Skylert” tab is available in the Skyward Family Access system. Skylert allows parents to easily setup their emergency contact preferences. If you have questions about your Skyward Family Access account or password, please contact your school office. If you have problems with the setup, please call 262-670-1678 for technical support.
School closings for the School District of Hartford Jt. #1 schools, other K-8 area schools and Hartford Union High School are announced as “HARTFORD AREA SCHOOLS.” If the School District of Hartford Jt. #1 has to close alone for an emergency, the closing will be announced as “HARTFORD JT. #1 SCHOOL DISTRICT” (this includes Central, Lincoln & Rossman Schools as well as our 4K sites and early childhood).
The District may also use a mass text, email and/or phone system to disseminate information. Parents of children at Lincoln, Rossman, 4K and early childhood sites are required to complete an Emergency Dismissal form indicating where their child is to go in the event it becomes necessary to dismiss before the end of the regular school day. If you have not completed this form or if information on this form has changed, it is your responsibility to notify the school your child attends.
Breakfast and lunch will continue to be served during the week of spring break.
Balances left in accounts will roll over for the next school year. Payments will automatically be refunded for eighth grade students unless there are younger siblings in the District. In this case, balances will roll over for the next school year.
If you are requesting a refund of a food service balance, please make the request by calling 262-673-8048 (you may have to leave a message) or by email to seefeld[at]hjt1[dot]org.
