Dear Bay Head School Families,
I want to officially welcome all of you to the 2019-2020 school year! Summer has come and gone and we must now move forward with many exciting changes to follow. We have been very busy throughout the school this summer with updating classrooms with new smart boards, removing carpet, painting, and replacing the portico on the original section of the school to update, while keeping with the traditional look and authenticity. Everything is progressing smoothly to a great opening of school on Wednesday, September 04, 2019.
I am privileged to have the opportunity to return again this school year as your principal and I feel honored to work with our highly qualified and dedicated staff, our wonderful students, and all of the supportive parents. Our Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Peter Morris, will also continue his role at the Bay Head School again this year. The elementary years are critical times of development for students and families and I look forward to working with all of you to make this school year successful.
The Bay Head School will begin implementing a new math program in grades k-8 called Go Math to enhance instruction and implement rigor and relevance in mathematics. Furthermore, our staff is in the process of being trained on a new safety protocol called ALICE training, and students will also receive this training once school begins, as safety and security are paramount for Bay Head School.
I’d like to invite you to continuously check the school website as this is the main source of updated communication and will serve as a resource tool for all upcoming events, student/parent handbook, important reminders and you can keep up with Mr. Camardo’s, ‘Principal’s Corner’. Communication is key to success, and we will continue to encourage teachers and parents to stay connected via websites, phones call, and emails as well as Remind. We will continue to use our ‘One Call Now’ call system for reminders of upcoming events, important meetings and emergency closing information.
In closing, please enjoy the remaining days of summer. We enthusiastically anticipate the return of our students, teachers and staff as they bring the Bay Head School alive! Please don’t hesitate to contact the Main Office or myself directly with any questions or concerns.
With Shark Pride and Spirit,
Mr. Frank J. Camardo, Principal
