Dear WRS Families

Parent Advisory Committee for Report Cards
This year the Hartford School District’s elementary schools will be sending home a new report card.  This report card is an outcome of the work our district has undertaken in response to two pieces of legislation:  the Vermont Education Quality Standards (EQS) and Act 77. The new report card reflects proficiency based learning which is defined by the Agency of Education as “any system of academic instruction, assessment, and reporting that is based on learners demonstrating proficiency in knowledge, skills, and abilities they are expected to learn before progressing to the next level or challenge.”

We are forming a Parent Advisory Committee to help provide feedback on the new report cards.  This committee will meet twice during the year on 1/29/19 and 4/30/19 from 6:00-7:00 PM. If you are interested in being a part of this committee, by Dec. 4, 2018, please send your name, telephone number, email and the school your child attends to:


Noel Bryant
Assistant Superintendent Hartford School District

Thank you for contributing!
A very special thank you to our wonderful WRS families!   So many of you have contributed food for our annual WRS Thanksgiving Feast.   Our students feel so proud to contribute to our family style meal. Each grade level chooses different food to prepare for our meal and these items all come from your homes.    A very special thank you goes to Ms. Ann Cerasoli who cooks the squash, stuffing, gravy and cornbread! Today some of our new staff participated in their very first “Squash Chucking”!   We’ll post some photos on our website soon! I wish all of you a very peaceful and special Thanksgiving!

Remember to Update Your Infinite Campus Portal
As you know, we had our first weather event today.   If you did not receive an automated call from Superintendent DeBasli this morning it is because your phone number is not accurate in Infinite Campus.  Please follow these directions to update it.

Here are the directions once again:To ensure that the school has a family’s most current contact information, guardians are expected to update their contact information on the Infinite Campus Parent Portal ( when a change occurs.  This includes a child’s physical address, mailing address, guardian’s daytime contact information, guardian’s email and emergency contact information. If you are not able to access the parent portal, please contact the school secretary and other arrangements will be made.
