Dear Parents and Guardians:

Nothing matters to us more than the safety of your child.

Bayside High School is instituting a new policy for all students to keep our learning environment safe and secure for all students and staff.  It is now required that students swipe-out at the end of their day by the Auditorium Lobby Exit which leads to 32nd Avenue or the Main Entrance which leads to Corporal Kennedy Street. 

Students swipe –in early in the morning and the time is recorded by computer. Upon exiting the building students will once again swipe-out and the computer will record their departure time.


Please note that we have moved to one single official attendance period, Period 2. All students now have a Period 2 class, and all students must be in school by this time. Some student programs were altered in the 3rd Quarter to reflect this. Please be sure to be at school no later than 8:45 AM if you begin Period 2. Period 1 starts promptly at 8 AM.

Reminder - You must attend ALL of your classes in order to be marked fully present for the day.

Apply for Free or Reduced Price School Meals!

Go to applyforlunch.com and complete the online application. Your child(ren) may be eligible for free or reduced price meals.

Families can also complete a paper application. Any questions can be sent in an email to OSFCompliance@schools.nyc.gov or by calling the Office of School Food Help Desk at (718) 707-4400.

Message from the Principal

Dear Parents & Students,



Last week, the Department of Education released its 2012-13 Progress Reports for High Schools.

With a score of 75.6 out of 100, Bayside High School exceeded the cut-off grade of 70 needed to receive an "A" rating.

This is the third "A" received since the Progress Reports began and it reflects the contributions and efforts of everyone at 32-24 Corporal Kennedy Street:


“…Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” 
  -John F. Kennedy, 1961

Dear Parents & Students,

When your child began at Bayside, you became a part of a community that includes 3,500 families; 300 staff members; and 44,000 alumni stretching back seventy-seven years. You also became part of a tradition which we hope will project forward by providing quality education to yet more thousands of students and families for the next seventy-seven years.

Being part of a community brings with it rights, privileges, and responsibilities. One of the most urgent responsibilities is to ensure that the community can survive and thrive to include others in the coming years.


A message from the Principal:

Dear Parents & Caregivers,

Each new school year brings opportunities & challenges. The opportunities include all of the great learning experiences which our dedicated faculty and administrators have planned for your children. These also include our chance to extend the welcoming, caring & personalized environment that our faculty, staff, & administrators have striven to create for your children.


On February 24, 2009, President Obama included the following in his remarks to Congress:
"... every American will need to get more than a high school diploma. And dropping out of high school is no longer an option. It's not just quitting on yourself, it's quitting on your country -- and this country needs and values the talents of every American...we will provide the support necessary for all young Americans to complete college..."
