Principal's Message

Dear Parents,


Family Conferences are coming! Spring conferences are an important time to meet with your child's teacher, talk about progress and set goals for the 3rd trimester. All of our kids at Baywood are doing such great learning and we are excited to share with you!


On Monday, you will receive a notice from your child's teacher requesting times you are available for a Spring Conference. Please fill this out and return it to your child's teacher by Wednesday.


Also, please note that next week Thursday 2/25 & Friday 2/26 are minimum days for teacher conference preparation. The following week is a regular schedule. Then Monday 3/7- Friday 3/11 are minimum days/1:00 dismissal for Family Conferences!


Be sure to visit our Book Fair during conference week too!


Best,

Jennifer Dinielli

Open Enrollment Registration

Mark your calendars! Open enrollment and registration begins Monday, February 29, 2016 through Thursday, March 24, 2016.

***If you have a friend or neighbor with a child who will be of Preschool or Kindergarten age for next school year, spread the word***


What is Open Enrollment?

Open Enrollment is the time period during which families may request their child attend a school other than their home school. While we hope you are happy at Baywood, we understand that sometimes, for a variety of reasons, families are better served by their child attending another school due to transportation needs, child care or other circumstances. If this is your situation, come to our office between the dates listed above to complete the request paperwork. Do not miss this important deadline.


How do I Register an Incoming PreSchooler or Incoming Kindergartner?

Come into our office starting Feb. 29th for the paperwork & information. Incoming Kindergartners must be five years old on or before September 1, 2016. Transitional Kindergartners must be five on or before December 2, 2016. Preschool students must be four by December 2, 2016. If you have a friend or neighbor with a child this age, please help us get the word out about these important dates!


If you have any questions about registration, please stop by our office or call 534-2856.
