Bayside PTA Updates - Volunteer Fingerprinting, Kick-off PTA Meeting & More
Wed, Aug 21 12:31pm

Onsite Fingerprinting for Volunteers tomorrow - Thursday - after drop-off in STEAM Playground!

Bayside Academy has many opportunities to be involved in your student’s education. Tomorrow we’re offering the most convenient way for you to complete district-mandated fingerprinting for any parent/guardian who plans to chaperone a field trip or lead a club on campus.  You only need to do it once and it's good until 8th grade!

When: Thursday, 8/22 at 8:00 AM (right after drop off)

Where: STEAM Playground

Cost: $60 (one-time cost good through 8thgrade)

What do I need?: Driver’s license or other valid government-issued ID

A LiveScan Fingerprint Technician will do the fingerprinting. She'll have the LiveScan application or you can request one from the Bayside office in advance.  You can get fingerprinted elsewhere too - search online for "LiveScan Fingerprinting." We'll also have fingerprinting at our PTA Volunteer Training Meetings in September. 


Kick-off PTA Meeting & Parent Ed event next Tuesday morning! 

Come find out how the PTA helps support Bayside and strengthens its community.  You'll also hear back-to-school tips from Bayside Counsellor Ms. Alexander to best support your student.  

8:00AM - Coffee, Donuts & Fruit

8:15AM - PTA meeting

9:00AM - Parent Ed Event with Ms. Alexander
