Just prior to 1:00 p.m. this afternoon (Monday, September 27), a fire alarm in the district was activated. The activation was not planned, nor was it part of an evacuation drill. All students and school personnel were evacuated from the building and accounted for while district personnel investigated the alarm. Members of the Hartford Volunteer Fire Department arrived on the scene and once determined, provided the "All Clear" for everyone to re-enter the building.
I appreciate that this may have been a scary situation for our students and their families, and want to reassure our families that student safety is our priority. I would also like to thank the members of the HVFD for their partnership and assistance.
