Principal's Message


The safety of our students is always my first priority so I wanted to send a few reminders about dropping off and picking up your student(s) each day.

1) You must have your student's name tag hanging on the window (in the car line) or in your hand (parent walk-up) in order for us to release your child. If for some reason you do not have the tag that day, you will be asked to park and go to the front office so that we are able to check the student's blue card for verification.

2) Please make sure that you are dropping off and picking up students in the designated areas. Students are not allowed to come out the front doors and cross traffic in the afternoon.

3) Anytime you are on campus you must have a visitor's badge. This is for the safety and security of everyone on campus. Please make sure your badge is visible to all of our staff members.

Thank you for helping us keep all of our Bobcats safe! We appreciate all of your help and support.

Due to lack of supervision by Bay Haven staff during lunches, any student sitting outside should be seated at the lunch tables and not running around in the courtyard or on the cement. Please enjoy this time visiting and eating with your child.

The Haven Family Foundation is hosting its annual golf tournament on Saturday, April 14th at Holiday Golf Club, 8:30 shotgun start, four person scramble format. This year's tournament promises to be better than any before. All proceeds go to the Foundation to help with improvements at both campuses and to benefit students at all five Haven Family schools. There are plenty of opportunities to participate in the tournament, either as a player, sponsor or contributor. If you like to play golf (or at least be out in the fresh air and occasionally whack a golf ball), get your foursome together and sign up your team today. There will be lots of goodies at the tournament for all players. If golf is not your game or you cannot make it on the 14th, be a sponsor and get publicity for your company. The Corporate/Family Sponsorship offers the opportunity not only for publicity on the day of the tournament, but at both campuses thereafter! If you are not inclined to do either, we will gladly accept any donations of goods, gift certificates or other promotional items to be used as prizes or giveaways. Attached is a sign up flier for the tournament with all pertinent information. Sign up by April 7th. To sign up, if you have questions or your would like to help with the tournament, call Bill Henry at 850-774-0887 or Steve Crow at 850-258-5368, or email

Dress Code

Students must be in dress code when they arrive to school, this includes belts. Any student out of dress code will sit in the office until a parent can bring the appropriate item to fix the dress code infraction. This will include belts as the office does not keep extra on hand. Thank you for understanding.
