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. 11th and 12th grade students are allowed to leave school during their study hall if it starts or ends their day. 9th and 10th grade students must attend all of their study halls, even if the study hall starts or ends their day. This applies to Block Days as well.
