COVID-19 Update

October 13, 2020

Hello Hartford Staff and Families,

We have been very carefully following the Positive COVID-19 cases in our region over the past week. Today we learned that nearby Grafton County, NH is now considered a "Yellow" zone. The "Yellow" zone designation means that Positive COVID-19 cases are above 400 per million people. Please see the Vermont Department of Health travel map (Map Link). This map is updated weekly on Tuesday's.

For our students, families and staff that live in Vermont, this means that non-essential travel to Grafton County, NH is restricted and subject to quarantine guidelines.  Essential travel to Grafton County, NH, is allowable without quarantine restrictions. Likewise, Essential travel from Grafton, County to Vermont is not restricted. Here is a link to the Vermont Department of Health webpage related to travel (VT DOH Travel Info).  

Here is a list of examples of Essential and Non-essential reasons for travel. Travel within Vermont for Vermonters is not currently restricted.


  • Work
  • School 
  • Healthcare (doctor visits, getting medication, etc)
  • Grocery shopping
  • Visiting a non-custodial parent


  • Restaurants
  • Entertainment
  • Sporting events (school or otherwise)
  • Shopping for non-essential items

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me or one of the district's COVID Coordinators.

Thank you,

Tom DeBalsi
