Arrivals & Departures
Arrival time is 8:00-8:15 AM. Children are considered tardy if they arrive after 8:15 AM. Students may be transported by school bus or dropped off by an adult in front of the school.
Parents are required to notify the Academy staff of any special instructions or needs for the child’s day. These special instructions include but are not limited to: Early Pick Up, Alternative Pick Up Person, health concerns and/or any general issues of concern which the Academy staff should monitor throughout the day.
Notification Of AbsenceParents are required to inform the school by 9:00 AM if a child will not be at the school on a scheduled day. If your child is ill, we request that you notify the school not only of the absence, but also of the nature of the illness. This enables our faculty to keep track of any illnesses, which may occur at our school. The Academy will take all measures necessary to protect your child’s confidentiality. Parents are not required to disclose this information by law, and your continued enrollment will not be based whatsoever on your decision to share (or not) the reason for your child’s absence from school. Parents who know in advance that a child will be late are required to notify the school by 9:00 AM.
Departure ProcedureDismissal time is 3:30 PM. Adults picking up should wait for the children in their cars or on the sidewalk outside the front of the school.

Buses for New Haven Residents
The New Haven Public Schools System offers transportation to New Haven residents. The Academy is responsible for submitting transportation requirements to the New Haven Public Schools (NHPS) prior to the beginning of the school year. Transportation requests and updates take two to three days to be processed by the NHPS. The student's family will need to transport the child to school until a bus schedule and route is received by All Nations and communicated to the parent.
