SEPTEMBER 2019

BAYVILLE SCHOOL

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Welcome back to a new school year! Whether this is your first experience or you have been with us before, we are extremely excited to have you!


During the 2019-2020 school year, you will continue to see an active Berkeley Township Police Officer on duty daily as school security remains a top priority of all our schools. A huge thank you to the Berkeley Township Police Department for their constant support.


The parent portal will continue to be an essential connection between home and school. Parents have access to their children's report cards, progress reports, teacher's homepage, lunch account, and a variety of pertinent information via the parent portal. Parents can log onto the portal by clicking on www.fridayparentportal.com/berkeley. Having access to the portal allows parents to keep all important school information up to date. Please check your information and make any necessary changes. It is the parents' responsibility to keep this information current.



I look forward to seeing you and sharing memorable experiences with you throughout the 2019 - 2020 school year! Please do not hesitate to contact me or the main office with any questions or concerns.

Back to School Night September 11th!

Please see Bayville School's Back to School Night Schedule below. Please note principal meetings are for parents of students in grades 1-4. In addition, the PTA Scholastic Book Fair will also be open!

Medications In School

All medications, prescribed or over-the-counter, must be brought to the school by a parent in the original labeled bottle or container. All medication need written and signed order from a physician.


Please contact the school nurse, Mrs. Reece, with any questions at (732) 269-1300 (ext. 4005).

Absence Reporting

The Berkeley Township School District has an automated calling system for absences. A phone call will be automatically placed to the home of any student who is absent from school whether the child's absence was called in or not. We do ask that you continue to follow our school's procedure(s) for calling in an absence and continue to send in absence notes and/or doctor notes to assure that the absence is recorded correctly. A 24 hour voice mail absence reporting line may be reached at (732) 269-1300 (press 1).

Breakfast & Lunch

The breakfast & lunch programs will begin on the first day of school. Breakfast can be purchased for $1.75 per day. The cost is $2.90 per day for lunch and $1.00 for snacks. Payments for lunch can be made in the form of a check made payable to "Bayville School Cafeteria" or by accessing your child's lunch account through the parent portal and making a payment to the account using a credit or debit card.


Any child who received free or reduced lunch or breakfast last year will continue to do so for the first 30 days of September. A new application must be completed each year. If you are pre-qualified through TANF or food stamps, you will be notified by letter and will not need to submit a new application.

If you have any questions regarding either program, please contact Sodexo at 732-269-1302 extension
