Dearest Bakersville Families and Friends,

We are very excited to be facing the start of another school year with our amazing students and staff. Here are a few important dates, reminders and information as we look ahead to the start of the school year:

  • Covid Safety/Health: At this time due to community transmission being substantial for COVID-19, our guidance states we must adhere to mask wearing and distancing guidelines. This can change throughout the school year as transmission rates fluctuate. We will continue to follow these guidelines and adhere to the Health Department protocols as always, throughout this school year, in order to keep all of our students and staff safe!

  • August 16th, 2021- The main office resumes regular hours (8:00am-3:30pm) for any school related business, including any new registrations that still need to be completed.

  • Welcome letters from classroom teachers will be sent via USPS to all students in the coming weeks. In the meantime, here is a link to our staff biographies as well as links to individual teacher letters, in the event you remember or already know who your child has for a teacher this year, or you may call the office and inquire. All school supply requests are optional, however, we encourage you to send your child with a mask, water bottle, and hand sanitizer. Bakersville - Staff Profiles

  • August 30th, 2021 from 3pm-5pm we will host a “Meet and Greet” for all incoming families (new and returning) so that you may connect with staff who may be working with your child or children in the fall. We will have loads of information and some giveaways for you to take home. This event will be outdoors in our main playground area. In the event of inclement weather, we will host it in the gym with safety measures in place due to school district guidance.

  • September 2, 2021- First day of school for all Kindergarten through grade 4 students. Meet up in the playground area and find a staff member to help guide you to your child or children's classroom teacher(s)!

  • September 9, 2021- First day of school for all Bakersville Pre-K students at the Bishop O’Neil Center.

  • Incoming Kindergarten orientation video--If you haven’t seen it yet or want to watch it again, here it is: Virtual Kindergarten Orientation

  • Please be sure to continually check the district website transportation page Bakersville - Transportation for your child or children’s bus #, stop and time. It is recommended that students be at their stops ten (10) minutes prior to the scheduled stop time. Parents please note: bus arrival times may vary slightly due to weather, road conditions, or traffic.

Thank you and we look forward to working with you this school year! Do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns at any time.

Take care and be well,

Principal Kate Josef
