Welcome to Kindergarten

With Focus on each Child

Covid 19

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic Bayview Elementary School will be approaching our WTK differently this year. Our goal is to welcome our newest Bulldogs and their families to the school and give the students the smoothest transition possible into their schooling years. In these unprecedented times things may change so please refer back to this site to stay informed. We welcome you all and are excited to start our learning adventure together with you.

Gradual Entry

Please anticipate that your child will not be full time until Thursday, September 17, 2020 or later depending on circumstances. Similar to previous years, there will be a gradual entry process that involves interviews (Sept 10 & 11), then partial days (Sept 14-16).
