Principal's Message

Dear Parent Volunteers,

I have a special request to any current or interested Baywood parent volunteers! As our kindergarten students become stronger readers, we really want to provide them with opportunities to read! We are looking for volunteers for each of our 3 kindergarten classes to stay in the mornings after drop off and sit with each student as they read their book to you.

Not only will our kinder students love this opportunity to read one-on-one with an adult, it is a great way to help them become stronger readers! We need volunteers for about a half hour on Tuesday,Wednesday, and Thursday mornings. If you can help us out, please email or one of the kinder teachers directly & You do not need to have a child in kindergarten, but just need to be a willing volunteer

Thank you for your help! It takes a village to help our students thrive & we appreciate your partnership!

Open Enrollment Registration

Mark your calendars! Open enrollment and registration begins Monday, February 29, 2016 through Thursday, March 24, 2016.

What is Open Enrollment?

Open Enrollment is the time period during which families may request their child attend a school other than their home school. While we hope you are happy at Baywood, we understand that sometimes, for a variety of reasons, families are better served by their child attending another school due to transportation needs, child care or other circumstances. If this is your situation, come to our office between the dates listed above to complete the request paperwork. Do not miss this important deadline.

How do I Register an Incoming PreSchooler or Incoming Kindergartner?

Come into our office starting Feb. 29th for the paperwork & information. Incoming Kindergartners must be five years old on or before September 1, 2016. Transitional Kindergartners must be five on or before December 2, 2016. Preschool students must be four by December 2, 2016. If you have a friend or neighbor with a child this age, please help us get the word out about these important dates!

What if I already have a child at Baywood, how do I Register them for the Next School Year?

You will receive InfoSnap online registration info in the Spring and will attend our Registration Day at the end of Summer. We will be sharing that important date with you soon!

If you have any questions about registration, please stop by our office or call 534-2856.
