Principal's Message

Mrs. Erin B. Bailey
Bear Path School

Dear Bear Path Families,

I am excited to be at Bear Path School! Having grown up in Hamden and having attended Hamden schools myself, being a Hamden educator is a special privilege for me.  I have so many memories of great friendships, caring teachers, and supportive families and I am so excited to add to the memories with the Bear Path family.

I look forward to working closely with all families to ensure your child learns and grows to the best of their potential and beyond every day.  I believe close cooperation between students and the adults in their lives is necessary to help each child soar! Please consider joining our PTA and attending school events as often as you can.  Students thrive when families stay positively involved in their academic and social emotional growth.

At Bear Path, our staff is committed to making school a place your child wants to be.  Please don’t hesitate to contact school staff with any questions or concerns. We welcome your involvement in your child’s success.

If you have any questions or need information not found on the website, we encourage you to call (203) 407-2015.  School staff makes every effort to return calls within 24 business hours of receiving a message. You might also find it helpful to email staff.  You will find email addresses listed under the Contact Staff tab on the left hand side of the web site.

We, the  are looking forward to wonderful school year!  

Warmest Regards,


Mrs. Erin B. Bailey
