Message from the Superintendent

It is hard to believe the school year is winding down. It has been a great year for the Bainbridge Guilford Central School District. Our students and staff have accomplished great things this year.

Congratulations to our graduating seniors. This time of year is bittersweet for us. We are excited for our students to head off to college, or a career or the military, but we will miss all that they have brought to us as a bobcat. The district is confident our students are graduating college and career ready. We are proud to have 5 students graduating from BG with associates degrees from Tompkins Cortland Community College! Congratulations to Abbi Miller, Olivia Garror, Rachel Hinkley, Caitlyn Diamond, and Griffin Fisher. An impressive feat to say the least. Hats off to these students for their hard work and dedication.

During the school year taxpayers were asked to vote on our proposed capital project. An overwhelming response of “yes” was heard from our voters. I thank you for your support of our district, students and mission. A year from now work will start on our campus as we embark on improving all of our facilities for our students and staff.

Starting in the fall with the 2017-2018 school year, all families will be asked to designate no more than 2 drop-offs for their child traveling home on the school bus. We are having an extreme amount of difficulty getting students delivered to the correct location at night because families change where the child is being dropped off, sometimes on a daily basis. We have several families that request a different drop off each afternoon which is very confusing for the bus driver. This confusion escalates if there is a substitute bus driver.

While I anticipate this taking some juggling for families, it is my hope that with three months’ notice families can make preparations ahead of time. Our goal is to get your child home safe. Many districts in the area have moved to this process for safety reasons. In fact, we are the sixth district in the DCMO BOCES to implement this policy. Thank you for your understanding with this change.

In the coming months we will be planning our school Agricultural Fair to be held at the end of September. Students will display crops they have grown, crafts, foods and live animals. We will be looking for volunteers to help with the fair. If you are interested please email me at the school at tryan@bgcsd.org.

And finally, thank you for your tremendous support with our school budget. We were proud to offer a budget to our taxpayers that was down 3.5% from last year. The school greatly appreciates the community support we receive.

As always, if you have any questions, suggestions or concerns, please contact me at the school.
