All New Students:

New Student Enrollment, including Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten students, will begin on February 5, 2018. Kindergarten students must be 5 years old on or before September 1, 2018, for the 2018-2019 school year.

Transitional Kindergarten is available to students whose fifth birthday is between September 2 and December 2, 2018 

Schools have an established number of K-5 students that each can accommodate based on capacity. If a school reaches capacity in any grade level, the ‘unhoused’ students will be accommodated at one of the other elementary schools in the district.

New student enrollment will be on a first-come-first-served basis. The District encourages parents to enroll early in the process. There is no guarantee of attendance in the student’s neighborhood school. Placement of each student is subject to capacity at each school.


Happy 2018!

Welcome back from Winter Break. The New Year provides an opportunity for a fresh start, right? Well I think every day provides that opportunity but the celebration of a New Year offers a more formal opportunity to reflect on the past year and discuss "resolutions" for the New Year.   How many went through the process over the Holiday? I have done it for years but this year I was introduced to a fresh idea worth sharing.
This year I chose a word for the New Year that will inspire me to be my best.   I heard about this practice via an unintended email.   When I asked the person about the email and the content, they mentioned they "accidentally" copied me, but they were more than willing to share.   We began a conversation about the idea of choosing one word versus a resolution or goal for the New Year.   Every year people make New Year resolutions but 9 out of 10 people fail to fulfill their resolutions. We talked more about the process of discovering "your one word" and the greater chances of remembering, acting upon and sharing one word versus a lengthy resolution.   I asked the person, "What's Your One Word?"
The words chosen over the years were present, balance, journey, be and purpose. I asked about the success of using a word to guide the year.   The response was very positive.   The growth can be seen in the choice of the word!   Beware BSD Team.   I am now a believer and think this would be a great start for our year! 
I want to give credit where credit is due. There is actually a book that describes this process called One Word by Gordon, Britton and Page.   It is not too late to think about your one word with family and friends. Next time you see me let's share a word or two. We are looking forward to an inspirational year with everyone striving for their personal best.
Happy New Year,







BSD Superintendent
