Students can be picked up from the west or east gate and must have a placard hanging in a window.


    Signing In

    All parents and visitors are required to sign in at the front office before visiting the classroom for conferences, programs, etc. A photo identification is required at sign-in, if you are requesting entrance into the school for any reason. This is necessary and enforced for the safety of our students.



    It is the mission of Bauder Elementary to successfully and honorably prepare all students for on or above grade level work in middle school and beyond by collaborating as educators and a community.
