Friday, March 13th

A message read to our students this morning from our principal, Heather Highet:
"Good morning everyone.  I wanted to speak with all of you given the unprecedented closure of the school for the two weeks following March break.  We are waiting to hear more from our Director, Mrs. Deb Rantz and at that time I will share it with all of you.  I do suggest today that you take everything necessary from your locker home with you.  At the very minimum, you can go over the learning you have done to date in each of your classes.  Review, revise and investigate.  I would also ask that you read.  If you need a book, stop by the Library Commons or borrow one from the Communications Department.  Keep your brains and your bodies active Blazers!  I would also like to reassure you that adjustments will be made to accommodate these unpredictable times as our school year is affected.  Stay tuned as the day unfolds.  Once we leave for March break, check our school website and Twitter for updates."

  • Yesterday a group of thirteen students participated in Bayridge’s 3rd LifeBus.  Thank you to everyone who volunteered their time.  It was a great success!  If you want to help save a life make sure to listen to upcoming announcements for the next LifeBus.
