Welcome to our school! We believe that parent participation is key to student success; our new website is designed to provide parents with all the information they need to be active participants in their student’s education.

Snow day closure information

The Bear Valley Unified School District transports approximately 2,500 children to and from school each day.
In making decisions about the closure of schools, safety is the primary concern. The School District works with
the Highway Patrol and weather forecasting sites in attempting to make proper decisions regarding school
closure. Decisions must be made by 5:00 a.m. if buses are to be stopped and parents notified.

Pick Up and Drop Off Guidelines

Baldwin Lane Families,

In order to safely drop off and dismiss our students, please adhere to the
following guidelines when dropping off and/or picking up your child from school.

• Please follow all directions from staff and obey all traffic laws.
• Unfortunately, there have been reports of cell phone use and texting when vehicles are in motion. This puts you and others in danger. Please remember to follow all
traffic laws.
• If you intend to park your vehicle, please only park in an assigned parking spot.
• During inclement weather, please plan accordingly and leave your house a little early so that student tardiness will not be an issue.
• Please do not park in the pick-up/drop off circle
• Please use the sidewalks at all times.

Drop off:
Pull all the way forward when asked by a staff member and only drop off your child at the curb in front of the school.

Encourage your child to be observant and watch for your vehicle.

Please recognize that our staff’s main concern during drop off and dismissal is the safety and
welfare of your child and all of our students. Staff have been instructed to notify me
if there is an issue.

We appreciate your cooperation, and patience during drop off and dismissal.
