Welcome 2016-2017 School Year

Dear Baker Families,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 2016-17 school year.   I hope that you had a wonderful summer!  Believe it or not, the first day of school is just around the corner.  I would like to introduce our new staff members Jennifer Davis, SDC teacher, Sarah Ko, Therapeutic Special Day Class, and Julie Bohn, Instructional Coach and I am excited for them to join the Baker team.


The first day of school for all students is Tuesday, August 23, 2016.  It is extremely important that your child be here the first day of school.  If your child will be absent for any reason, call our Absence Line at 874-3210.  If your child has not attended by the second day of school, Wednesday, August 24th, he/she will be dropped from enrollment.  You will need to re-register at the Enrollment Center for a class placement in the district.  This placement may or may not be at Baker.
