Dear Baywood Parents and Students,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year.  We are excited to see all of you in two weeks.

Please join me in welcoming several members to our team. Our front office has two new members this year, Mrs. Lesly Laughlin, Administrative Assistant and Deborah Robert, Assistant Principal. The three of us have been working to ensure a smooth opening for all. See an introduction to our new office staff. We are here to support you!

I am pleased to announce Mrs. Tressa Sabo will join our 3rd grade team. Mrs. Sabo joined our 2nd grade team last year and we are thrilled she will return as a full-time member of our staff. 

Mrs. Gretchen Weitzman will team teach this year in 2nd grade with Mrs. Fanourgiakis and Mrs. Lowenthal. She will teach on Mondays in Mrs. Fanourgiakis’ class and Fridays in Mrs. Lowenthal’s class.

As the first day of school approaches, we want to share valuable information that will help you prepare for the start of school. First, please note that tomorrow, August 1st, the Aeries Parent Portal will open. The Parent Portal will allow you to update your child’s information in our database, ensure phone numbers and emails are accurate, as well as, complete required annual SMFCSD forms. The student data confirmation window will open on Wednesday, August 1, 2018 and close on Friday, August 31, 2018. You will receive an email invitation to update your child’s information tomorrow. Please watch for this important email and visit the Parent Portal.

Access information regarding our schedule, brunch/lunch and important dates. If you need assistance, please contact us. Enjoy the rest of your summer vacation and we will see you on Tuesday, August 14, 2018.

Kind regards,

Mrs. Amanda Driscoll, Principal    adriscoll@smfcsd.net
