Back to School 2022-2023 Quick Reference GuideThe 2022-2023 school year starts on Wednesday, September 7, 2022 for all students.
Below is a quick reference guide for all your back to school needs.
Schedules & Teacher Assignments:
Visit the Parent Portal for schedules and teacher assignments starting Friday, August 26, 2022. If you have trouble accessing your account, contact your child's school. Your child's school can also update your contact information. We use the School Messenger system to deliver important updates and emergency closure information, so it is important to make sure your school has your updated contact information.

The Transportation Department will send out emails on Friday, August 26, 2022 with bus route information. For more information or contact information, visit the Transportation Department's webpage.
Important Transportation forms include the Authorization to Release form, Joint/Shared Custody Transportation Request form, Daycare/Sitter Transportation form and more.
Versatrans My Stop mobile application
The district offers the Versatrans My Stop mobile application, which allows parents to track their child’s bus with a mobile device, and it provides an estimated time the bus will arrive at the bus stop in the morning and in the afternoon.
The app is free and you can download it from the App Store or Google Play. Look for Versatrans My Stop. Download the app, and when prompted, choose the Baldwinsville Central School District. You will then be prompted to put in your user name and password.
You will need your child’s nine-digit student ID number to use for the user name and for the password. You can find the number in the parent portal. It is the nine-digit number in bold on the upper right side of the page. (Please use your oldest child's ID number.)
If you have forgotten your parent portal password, or become locked out of the portal, please contact your school to have a new password issued.
