Daily Announcements

Dear Bayside High School Family,

We are sad to announce that Mr. Stephen Piorkowski, our beloved physical education teacher and coach, passed away Wednesday evening after a long bout with cancer.  Steve taught and coached at Bayside for over 20 years, turning frightened freshmen into starring seniors. He will be missed by our entire community and our thoughts are with the Piorkowski family during this sorrowful time.

Michael Athy,


Register for a FREE SAT / ACT practice test. The practice tests will be held on Saturday, March 21st at Bayside High School. Registration Flyer.

As a reminder, here are our snow day procedures:


The Chancellor will make an announcement to all public schools in the city on whether to close schools or delay their opening.  This announcement is made in consultation with other City officials.  All authorized delayed openings will result in the regular starting time being two hours later.
