Afternoon Pick-Up Schedule


Due to a change in bus routes, we are changing our afternoon pick-up schedule.

Here are the changes taking place:

  • All K-5 car riders will be picked up on the elementary side of the school.
  • Elementary students with middle school siblings will be picked up on the elementary side. Middle school students will meet their younger sibling on elementary side.
  • Buses will load on the middle school side. They will leave Bay Haven at 3:15pm. Due to this change, middle school pick up will not begin until 3:15pm. For your convenience, middle school parents should not arrive to campus before 3:15pm.

Please read carefully the procedures for picking up your child so we can ensure their safety.

Thank you for your flexibility and patience!

2017-2018 Calendar

Why do we start so early?

Good question! Here are some great benefits to our new school calendar:

  • Start August 10th
  • We will still observe national holidays, Sept. 4th, Oct. 9th, Nov. 10th, Jan. 15th, and Feb. 19th.
  • In addition, we will have Thanksgiving November 20th thru 24th and Spring Break March 19th thru 23rd.
  • Christmas holidays will be Dec. 21st (half day) thru Jan. 8th. That's 18 days off with 3 weekends included! Enjoy!
  • Students will finish the first semester prior to Christmas break and the third nine-weeks prior to Spring Break. . . meaning, these breaks will be family time without the worry of studying for exams!
  • All students and teachers will complete the school year before Memorial Day!

2017-2018 is going to be the best year yet!
