Celebrate this school year with a virtual yearbook signing.
Dear Class of 2020,
We know how important the tradition of yearbook signing is. While we anticipated the time being spent outdoors at the BBQ, circumstances have dictated otherwise. Nonetheless, our yearbook company, Walsworth, has partnered with Kudoboard™ to make virtual yearbook signing possible!
Kudoboard lets you make online boards that your friends can sign with messages, photos, and gifs. You just text, email or share your link with your friends. When you’re done, you can save your board as a hi-res JPEG to keep digitally or print and place inside your yearbook.
We all know this doesn’t replace signing yearbook in person outside on the South Lawn, but we hope you check out this opportunity. Please share this message and links with January graduates. We want as many seniors as possible to learn about this opportunity. Remember, YOU manage who signs your board and the messages displayed. This is an opportunity to show your friends how much you care and appreciate them. Write something MEANINGFUL. Inappropriate messages, images, or bullying of any sort will NOT be tolerated. Make this opportunity a positive one.
Check out the attached How-To PDF and head over to kudoboard.com/walsworth to get started today. Make sure to enter promo code Walsworth2020 for special pricing.
At this time, our regular phone operations are disrupted. Please call (914)407-4012 and leave a message including your child's name and a call back number. A staff member will contact you.
The preferred method of contacting school staff is by email. A directory of staff email can be found of the Faculty and Staffdirectory page at www.baysidehighschool.org. Please continue to check your email and your phone for regular updates from Bayside High School.

Earlier today, we received a mistaken report concerning a potential threat. The school was placed on lockdown. NYPD was on scene and confirmed there is no threat. The lockdown was lifted and classes resumed as normal.
Our students and their safety is our top priority, and I thank our staff for their quick response.
Parent-Teacher Conferences will take place this evening at 6:30 PM, as regularly scheduled.
