Dear District Residents,
District staff members are busily preparing for another school year as the summer winds down. School will open on Wednesday, September 6. Over the summer, our district staff does a great deal of work to prepare for a new school year. I’d like to thank our administrative team, teaching staff, special education department, clerical and technology staff, facilities and ground crews and our transportation and food service staff for keeping the district running smoothly over the summer and working diligently to prepare for a new year.
Our number one priority is to provide all students with a quality education. Meeting this goal requires the involvement of parents and the community. Excellent schools need remarkable teachers, committed administrators and staff, safe facilities, responsive programs and exceptional communication between the district and all stakeholders.
We want the district to be your first and most trusted source of information about our schools and programs.
One of the district’s greatest assets is the atmosphere of caring, collaboration, and commitment that we have with district stakeholders. One way in which we maintain this environment is through our communications.
In addition to this website, the following are the district’s methods for communicating with parents and other community members:
The Hive Newsletter –The bimonthly newsletter is mailed to district residents.
BEE Informed E-Newsletter –This is an opt-in newsletter that enables members of the school district community to receive e-mails with the latest district news and information. The newsletter is usually sent out every Friday of the school year. The service is free and available to anyone with a valid e-mail address. To register for this service, click HERE.
Facebook–Like the district on Facebook! Look for Baldwinsville Central School District, the organization page.
Twitter – Follow us on Twitter @BCSDBEES.
Parent Portal –The parent portal enables parents and legal guardians to review information regarding their children, such as attendance, report card grades, and progress reports. If you do not have a parent portal account, please contact your child’s school to create one.
District Mobile App –The district has a free mobile app you can download from the app store or Google Play. App features include news, notifications, calendars and a staff directory. Look for Baldwinsville Central School District.
If you are not following the district through one or more of the communication modes listed above, I encourage you to consider registering for the e-newsletter, downloading the district app, and following us on Facebook and Twitter.
If you are not receiving the district newsletter in the mail every other month, please contact Kelly Cary, School Information Officer, at or 315-638-6180 so that we may resolve the issue. You can also find the newsletter online HERE.
Sometimes you might have a question or concern or need information on a specific topic or district program. We have a Whom to Contact List on the website HERE to aid you in determining whom to contact first. You can also consult our Leadership Team List and Organizational Chart HERE.

I hope everyone enjoys the remaining days of summer. We are excited to be opening our school doors on Wednesday, September 6, for our students and staff as we begin another school year.

See you in September!
