    Mental Health Parent Education Series 

    WISD is offering a free, monthly webinar series for parents and caregivers on various mental health and substance-use topics, including: how to talk to your children about mental health, supporting LGBTQ+ children, what to do in a crisis, community and school resources, etc. 



    During the course of the school day, students are not permitted to leave the building/campus without permission. Students may not report to their vehicles during the school day without administrators' permission. If students are caught outside of the building without permission, they will be subject to disciplinary action. Further violations will result in loss of parking privileges at Pathways High School.

    • Leaving for lunch is not permitted.


    The commitment of the Pathways team to provide a safe and nurturing school environment for all students is unwavering. Our utmost priority is to ensure that every student can thrive without encountering negative consequences. To uphold this commitment, we call upon you, as valued members of our learning community, to join us in conveying the importance of appropriate behavior and the potential outcomes should any student engage in unauthorized or harmful activities.

    For your convenience, we have attached the document titled Rights & Responsibilities - AAPS Students, Teachers. Staff, Parents, Guardians. This document outlines the rights and responsibilities of all stakeholders within our school community. By familiarizing yourself with its content, you'll gain a comprehensive understanding of the expectations we have for each student's conduct and engagement. We firmly believe that by working together as a united community, we can foster an environment where students not only excel academically but also develop into responsible, respectful, and considerate individuals.


    In an effort to allow students more room to space themselves, we will allow students to eat in the commons (cafeteria), in our outside courtyard in the middle of the school, and on the outside benches in the courtyard in front of the school. Lunchtime will be an opportunity for students to get outdoors. Staff will be in the halls to assist throughout the day. Students may not leave campus during lunch.

    Food Delivery During the School Day:

    Pathways Staff are not responsible for food delivered to students during the school day by food delivery establishments, including but not limited to Uber Eats, DoorDash or GrubHub. This is to better ensure the security of the school as well as to minimize disruptions to the school day. Also, students are NOT allowed to leave school to get food.  Students found leaving their class will be sent back to class. 


    Parents/Guardians, in order to make sure that students have their Chromebooks at school daily as needed, teachers keep Chromebooks in their classrooms. Each teacher’s classroom is equipped with a charging chart. Students will place their Chromebooks back in the carts at the end of each class block and retrieve them when they return each day. 


    Please respect our check-in system at the main entrance desk.  To help us keep track of who is in our schools during the school day, we ask that you present your identification, either a driver’s license or identification card, when you visit the school. Once you have presented your identification for the first time, you will be on the system and will no longer need to present your ID for future visits. This is true for visits to other AAPS schools as well. The system creates a visitor badge for you to wear while you are visiting the school. Please remember to check out at the office or desk where the badge was issued upon completion of your visit. The visitor management system also checks your identification against the national sex offender database.

    The safety of our students and staff is extremely important. Our district policy requires all visitors to buzz in and enter through our main doors and to sign-in at the office. I appreciate staff, parents, and community members’ efforts in working with the school to keep our students and staff safe.


    Please remember that all parents, guardians & visitors will be required to show government-issued picture ID at the entrance of our building, including for scheduled appointments.
