PROCEDURES for pick-up at the end of the school day at 2:40 p.m.:

Bus Students:

  • Bus students are escorted to the bus loop by a staff member, attendance will be taken then they will get on their assigned busses.

Early Pick-Up

We believe students belong in school for the entire school day. We ask that all appointments be scheduled outside of the school day. If your child must leave early from school, we ask that you do the following:

  • The Main Office must receive written parental/guardian notification with the date and time of the appointment the morning of the dismissal.

  • The parent/guardian must sign the student out.

As we continue to examine and evaluate our procedures and in an interest of maintaining a safe environment for everyone at Great Path Academy we are implementing the following:

  • If you will be traveling anywhere in the building other than the main office as a visitor during the school day we will ask that you sign in at the Main Office and get a visitor’s badge.

  • If you arrive late with your child please call the Main Office at 860-512-3700 to be allowed into the building. Student will sign in at the Main Office then proceed to class with a late pass.
