Welcome Event: Saturday, May 4, 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Please join us for the Class of 2023 Student Welcome Event on Saturday, May 4th. This event includes class activities, a light breakfast, and more!

If you have not already received your Welcome to Bay cinch sack, please contact us at admission@bayschoolsf.org and we will send it to you by mail. If you have your cinch sack or Bay gear already, send us a photo of you rocking it!

Please RSVP through this link by April 20, 2019

Though the Welcome Event is primarily for students in the Class of 2023, there will also be optional programming available for parents/guardians. Unfortunately, due to limited space we are unable to accommodate siblings on this day. 

Transportation

On Saturdays, the PresidiGo shuttle does not begin running, from downtown San Francisco, or, around the park until 10:00 a.m. Please plan accordingly. To plan your route click here. For more information about public transportation, click here.

 

Parking

When parking, always look for and follow posted regulations. Regulations may differ in different areas of the park. In paid parking areas, drivers must display an hourly or daily parking permit that corresponds to the zone number shown on posted regulations. Permits can be purchased from a Pay-and-Display pay station. The cost for Saturday hourly parking permits is $2.20/hour and capped at $11.00/day. All pay stations accept credit and debit cards, and many accept coins.

 

Orientation: Thursday, August 22, 2019
Meet your peers and advisors, familiarize yourself with some of the routines of school, review your schedule, learn about our activities and athletics programs, receive your computers and discuss the responsible use of technology, and have fun! A light breakfast (toast & bagels), lunch and snacks will be provided.

 

Athletic Tryouts
Fall tryouts begin August 12, with the exception of the Sailing Program. Please plan accordingly as this is two weeks prior to the beginning of the school year. Athletes are expected to attend all practices and games, which typically take place five days a week. Any sport-related questions should be directed to our Athletics Department at sgallop@bayschoolsf.org.

 

Jump Start
We know that being less familiar with a school environment means a new student can spend a lot of energy figuring it out. To help students (and their families) better understand Bay’s school culture and meet a few classmates before classes begin, Bay is offering a free four-day summer session (August 6 – 9) called Jump Start. This program is limited to 10 students, and will also include a morning session for parent(s)/guardian(s).

 

If you believe your child would be a good candidate for our summer Jump Start program, please feel free to call our Jump Start Coordinator, Abram Jackson, at 415-561-5800 ext. 187.

 

Transportation
Bay offers two bus programs to transport your child to and from school, one in South San Francisco, and the other in Marin. Below are stops of our current bus schedule:

South San Francisco Bus Stops
1. Balboa BART
2. 18th Avenue and Vicente
