VISITS TO THE SCHOOLS
Visitors are welcome at all schools. However, before planning a visit to the school, they must contact the building principal or teacher to establish a mutually agreeable time. All school visitors must register in at the school office and adhere to school security procedures and display proper identification while in the school.
LOITERING OR CAUSING DISTRUBANCE
All visitors to the schools must first report to the office of the school Principal. At any time, persons determined to be loitering or causing a disturbance shall be required to leave school grounds immediately. Staff members should be alert to the presence of unauthorized visitors and should report their presence to the Principal promptly.
"Loitering" is defined as remaining in or about a school building or grounds without having any reason to do so, or without a relationship involving custody of or responsibility for a pupil, or without any other license or privilege to be there. "Causing a disturbance" is defined as any action disrupting the normal function of the school system.
Legal Reference: Conn. Gen. Stat. § 53a-185: Loitering on school grounds: Class C misdemeanor.
