Early Release Day

All schools in the York Region District School Board are committed to improving student achievement and well-being. On Thursday, June 30, 2022 an early release day will take place to allow elementary teachers and support staff to take part in meetings during the afternoon of that day. These meetings will allow for school staff to engage in culminating activities regarding the review and revision of the School’s Improvement Plan as well as year-end and transition activities that support student success.

As has been our practice in the past, students will attend school during the morning of Thursday, June 30, 2022 only. Students will be dismissed early that day at 11:30 a.m. Arrangements will be made to ensure that students who are normally bused to and from school will receive transportation at this time. Parents and guardians whose children attend after school child care should make appropriate arrangements to address this change in schedule.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school.

Our thanks for your continued support.

Order Your 2021–2022 School Yearbook Today!

We have been working on the Bayview Glen P.S. 2021-2022 Yearbook for several months and it is now almost completed!  We are excited to share that we will be selling Yearbooks at the incredibly low cost of only $10 each.  This year, the Bayview Glen P.S. School Council is generously defraying about half the cost of the Yearbook.  As always, we thank the School Council for their continued support.

As we need to submit our orders for printing, Yearbooks will be on sale for two weeks until Friday June 3rd, 2022.  No late orders will be accepted.

Every year, there are a few students who ask to buy yearbooks after they’ve been delivered and it’s too late.  Remember, they are available for pre-order only, so order yours today!  We look forward to sharing with you the special moments students and staff have experienced during Bayview Glen Public School’s 2021-2022 year.

Be sure to order your keepsake before it’s too late.  Yearbooks can be ordered on School Cash Online.  If you have any questions, please contact the school office.

We also welcome parents and guardians who wish to go through the Lost and Found. We will keep trying to ensure that items are returned to their owners. We will maintain this display of clothing through Thursday, May 12th.  Long-standing unclaimed items will be packaged and donated to charity. We thank you for your support.
