Facilities Use | Lead Testing | Pesticide & Asbestos Notifications

The New Hartford School buildings and grounds serve as a community resource. The school buildings are used by over fifty organizations for sports programs, club activities, community education and fitness activities. The Town of New Hartford also uses the school facilities to offer a number of community services and recreational activities.

Facilities Use Information

As of March 2024, there is a new way to request use of New Hartford Central School District facilities.

The New Hartford Central School District (NHCSD) will now use Master Library Schedules

Master Library Schedules is an online program used to submit facility use requests to use district spaces. The software automates the NHCSD facility-use request process to improve efficiency, reduce approval processing times, and make everyone happier. It also virtually eliminates hard copies to reduce the district’s carbon footprint.

In order to request the use of a school facility or field, an organization must be:

  • A New Hartford-based organization
  • Provide proof of insurance showing protection of both the applicant and the school district – NHCSD needs to be named Certificate Holder and Additional Insured
  • Reimburse the school for any direct costs associated with the organization’s activity.

Requests for gym or pool use should be made by contacting the Athletic Director, as pool use requests require an additional form as well as copies of lifeguard certificates for attending lifeguards.

The NHCSD online facility-use request account and process can now be accessed from the NHCSD website from any internet-connected device including personal computers, tablets and smartphones.

Applications for building use should be submitted thirty days prior to the date of the proposed activity

Lead Testing

On September 6, 2016, Governor Cuomo signed legislation to test drinking water in New York State Schools for lead contamination. The new legislation requires all schools to be tested every five years.  

In compliance with the mandate, the district again collaborated with Oneida-Herkimer-Madison BOCES Safety Office to coordinate the lead testing service. The testing was conducted by Pace Analytical a fully accredited lead sampling lab.
