Happy New Year, Bard Community!
I am excited about 2023 and look forward to seeing all of you and hearing about your break!
It has been encouraging to invite parents and community members back to Bard gradually. So far this school year, we've had our first 'Coffee with the Principal' event, Kinder Winter Program, Winter Wonderland Day, and an in-person first-trimester awards assembly. All were a great success, and these small but significant gatherings are welcome signs of a return to normalcy.
I look forward to the events to come!
Reminder: We return to school Thursday, January 5, 2023. School starts at 8:00 am. We will be returning to school alongside some much-needed rain, so please dress accordingly.
As a reminder, at-home COVID-19 Test kits were distributed to all students and staff before the Winter Break. These at-home kits are intended to be used by students and staff before returning to school on January 5, 2023.
Please remember, at no time is it acceptable to send students to school when they're experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, especially if they have received a positive test result (laboratory-based or at-home test). Please be sure to report all positive COVID-19 cases to your student's school.
COVID-19 related Symtoms:
- Runny Nose/Congestion
- Sore Throat
- Muscle or Body Aches
- Fever above 99.5 degrees
- Loss of Smell/Taste

Student Safety 1st During Drop-Off and Pick-Up
When picking up and dropping off your students at school, ideally, we would ask that you park on a side street or in the school parking lot and walk your student to a school entrance.
Front Bus Zone: If you must drop off or pick up your student at the front of the school, please DO NOT park in the bus zone. The bus zone is clearly marked with a sign, yellow lines, and cones. Drivers parking in the bus zone will be asked to move.
Rear Parking Lot: If you drop off or pick up students at the side gate of the rear parking lot, please stay to the right, nearest the yellow line at the fence. Staying to the right will allow other vehicles to exit around those vehicles still waiting for their student(s).
Jerry Drive and Lillian Drive Gates: There are two gates at the rear of the Bard playground which are available for student pick-up or drop-off. The gates at the Jerry Drive and Lillian Drive cul de sacs are staffed during pick-up and drop-off times and are significantly less crowded. The Jerry Drive and Lillian Drive gates are excellent pick-up and drop-off area alternatives.
Thank you for your cooperation!
