Students are no longer allowed to have food delivered to the school: Sorry for any inconvenience and please plan accordingly.
Bay Port does not have an Open Campus, which means if you have a study hall before or after your lunch period you must report to both.
Student parking is available in spots marked with white lines only. This includes the athletic lot and the parking lot behind the district office building. Thanks for your help with parking in the correct spots.
Study Hall Reminder: Students need to sign in to their study hall. All students are marked absent each morning for study hall until they sign in.
To have your absence medically excused, the Attendance Office must have the following:
1. Medical note from provider stating what dates are excused
