Bayview is a wonderful place for students, staff, and families! This year our theme is TEAM Bayview! We pride ourselves on creating a warm, welcoming school environment for everyone! Our Bayview Staff does an amazing job at building relationships with their students and families. A warm school climate is our trademark.
Our students are given many opportunities for 21st century learning with our technology initiatives, Balanced Literacy Approach, hands-on science activities, and new Innovation Lab. These hands-on learning opportunities personalize learning and increase engagement for our students. All of our students go to music, physical education, art, and Spanish on a rotating schedule. Our fifth-grade students have the wonderful opportunity to join band. We believe that giving our students the opportunity to showcase their learning is vital. We love to celebrate success in a variety of ways!

WINTER WEATHER REMINDERS
If inclement weather forces District leaders to cancel in-person instruction during the 2022-23 school year, the first two instances would result in no-school days for students. Any subsequent weather-related closures would result in the District implementing a flex-learning day. Students in grades 5-12 would use their devices to access learning plans on Schoology. Families with students in grades K-4 would receive learning plans via email from teachers that morning. Click here to read how the District will communicate a weather-related closure to families and learn how to update your contact information in Infinite Campus to ensure you receive timely updates and information from the District.
