Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

Mark your calendar for February 26th 4:00-6:30 for our Coastal Family Resource Fair! This event is held at Los Osos Middle School and is for Los Osos and Morro Bay children. This is a great time to learn about what resources are available in your community and begin planning your child's summer activities while enjoying a free BBQ dinner and fun activities.

The CHC dental and health van will be there with free shots and check-ups. The traveling children's closet will be there as well as the food bank. Hope to see you there! Click on this link to view the flyer.

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.

Your child brought home their tally sheets showing how many laps they ran or walked. This is a reminder to be sure to collect any pledges and donations as packets are due this coming Friday, February 19th. Questions?: email: or Contact Robin Skaggs at 801-3678 or Casey Rosenlieb at 234-8915.
