BSD Back-to-School Welcome Crew

Join us on the first day of school as we welcome students back to the classroom for 2021-22!

The Bremerton School District is very excited to welcome all students* back to school for in-person learning this fall!

We want to invite the community to celebrate with us and help us welcome students back on the first day of school which is:

  • Wednesday, September 1 (grades 1-5)
  • Tuesday, September 7 (kindergarten)

*Alternative learning options are available to families who do not want their student to return to school in-person this fall.

The Details

  • Community members are invited to join us to welcome students outside our schools before school starts on the first day of school.
  • Welcome Crew members will line up outside of the main entrances of our schools to greet students as they arrive (principals will provide guidance on where to stand!).
  • Welcome Crew members do not need to be an approved District volunteer for this one-time event.
  • Welcome back signs, pom poms and noise makers are welcome and encouraged!
  • Community members, parents, siblings and other family members are welcome.
  • Sorry, no pets!
  • Please arrive at school 15 minutes before the start of school (see start times below).
  • Once school starts, you will be on your way to get on with the rest of your day!

COVID health & safety protocols

  • Masks are required.
  • Please maintain social distancing to the extent possible with others outside of your household.


  • RSVPs strongly encouraged but not required (RSVPs just help us make sure we've got Welcome Crew members at every school).
