We are pleased to share the link to the newly released FOCUS Student Information System (SIS). This video will help families know how to gain access and navigate through the FOCUS SIS. It is a great way to stay on top of important academic information and engage in your child's education.
Pinellas County Schools is participating in Start with Hello Week this week, led by an organization called Sandy Hook Promise. The purpose of the week is to empower students to create a culture of inclusion and connectedness within the school and community. By building a culture of inclusion and connectedness, schools and communities can better support young people and reduce their risk of bullying, violence, and depression.
To get everyone involved in this important week, we will be celebrating through dress-up days this week!
Monday: Celebrate our differences by wearing your favorite color.
Tuesday: Be wild about saying “Hello.” Wear a crazy hat or crazy hair or a hat that shows something about you and start a conversation with a fellow Jaguar about their hat/hair.
Wednesday: Wear a shirt that promotes kindness or love.
Thursday: Peace Day. Dress like a “hippie” and wear tie-dye, peace symbols, or hearts.
Friday: Wear your Bay Vista shirt or the colors yellow and green to show your school spirit as a Bay Vista Jaguar.
Please remember all students are to be in their classroom or online, seated, and ready for learning at 8:15 a.m. each morning. Students arriving at or after 8:15 a.m. will be marked tardy and must be signed-in at the office by a parent. Online students arriving after 8:15 a.m. will also be marked tardy.
Also, as a reminder, online students should be in attendance for the full instructional day each day. Attending only part of the day will result in an unexcused early release. Infractions will be issued based on the guidelines shared at last week’s Virtual Open House.
On behalf of our entire staff, I would like to welcome our new Jaguars and families, as well as our returning Jaguars! It is a great honor to continue as your principal and lead our amazing school community in these unprecedented times!
As we plan for a beginning unlike any we have ever experienced, our focus will still be to ensure the academic, social-emotional, and behavioral needs of each, and every student are known and met.
The Spring of 2020 challenged us to find a “new normal” for learning, connected us in new ways, and required our Jaguars to learn and interact from afar. More than ever, I appreciate the expertise our teachers bring to Bay Vista and the resilience our students have demonstrated to continue learning and work hard. I also came to appreciate the small things that are so powerful on our campus - giving a high-five, a hug, an unmasked smile, face-to-face Jaguar Jamborees, and so much more. What I MOST appreciate about Bay Vista is how, even under these unforeseen circumstances, we are still a strong, connected, and supportive Jaguar community!
Even as we find our way with our “new normal”, please be assured that our Jaguars will learn in a safe environment and our learning will not only continue, but it will thrive! We are committed to maintaining the highest standards so there is no shortage of opportunities for your student to feel challenged each day with high quality instruction. Whether your Jaguar is learning online or face-to-face, he/she is equally a part of our Jaguar family. Now, more than ever, we must demonstrate our commitment to our Guidelines for Success:
Just believe in yourself
Always be responsible
Give your best effort
Appreciate your environment
Respect is expected
Support fellow Jaguars!
I look forward to our journey together this year!
