We will present additional information at Back to School Night on Tuesday, September 20.
We again thank you for your cooperation and support throughout this process and wish you a wonderful school year!
The parent portal will continue to be an essential connection between home and school. Parents have access to their children's report cards, progress reports, teacher's homepage, lunch account, and a variety of pertinent information via the parent portal. Parents can log onto the portal by clicking on www.fridayparentportal.com/berkeley. Having access to the portal allows parents to keep all important school information up to date. Please check your information and make any necessary changes. It is the parents' responsibility to keep this information current.
Please fill out the following forms in the Parent Portal:
- Free/Reduced Lunch
- Press Release
- School Insurance
- Link Multiple Students
- Update Emergency Contacts

Material/Student Item Drop Off
Arrival and Dismissal
Throughout arrival and dismissal, our front parking lot will be inaccessible. Although this is an inconvenience, we do this as a safety measure for our students and staff. We appreciate your understanding.
Only students and staff will be permitted in the school building. If you need to talk to the secretaries, please let one of our staff members know and we will direct you accordingly.
We will have staff members stationed throughout to help direct students to their classrooms. If at any time you or your child has a question, do not be afraid to ask one of us.
School Hours: 8:40-3:05
2 Hour Delay: 10:40-3:05
4 Hour Day: 8:40-12:40
During arrival, all buses and vans will be in the front parking lot of the school. We will start bringing the kindergarten and preschool students in at approximately 8:35. The rest of the school will start filtering in at 8:40.
Curbside Drop Off: Parents can drop their children off on Cranmer Road. During this drop-off procedure, parents do not get out of the car, and students are able to walk up to the school by themselves. Please do not drop off until 8:35. All preschool and kindergarten students will be escorted to the school.
Parking Drop Off: If you want to walk your child up to the school, please park on Pine Tree Road and use the crosswalk to get to school. There is a crossing guard stationed at this intersection to ensure everyone's safety.
If you are picking up your preschool or kindergarten student, your child will need to be signed out at the end of every day. If you plan on picking them up daily and do not want them taking the bus to or from school, you can waive transportation entirely (see post below), and notify the main office and the classroom teacher of your plan to pick up every day.
If you want your child to take the bus to school, but you will pick them up at the end of every day, please notify the main office and the classroom teacher. However, you do not need to fill out a transportation waiver.
If your child traditionally takes the bus home, but you need to pick them up from school on a specific day, please notify the main office and the classroom teacher by 12pm.
Kindergarten Pick-Up: All kindergarten students and their siblings will be picked up at Door #3 at the back of Bayville School.
Preschool Pick-Up: All preschool students and their siblings will be picked up at Door #9 at the back of Bayville School.
Grade 1-4 Pick-Up: If you are picking up your student(s) not in preschool or kindergarten, you do so at the front of Bayville School.
