Welcome to Bayfield Middle School

We would like to welcome all our visitors to the BMS website.  We have created our school website to help parents, students, community members, and people wanting to learn more about our school be able to get important and timely information.  We are relying more and more on electronic communication to let you know what is going on in our school.  The Principal's Corner will serve as a monthly newsletter of information of importance to students and parents. We have included a variety of links to facilitate the sharing of information from our school.

 We are proud of our Middle School for the quality interaction and support among students, parents and staff.  We want to make this website an efficient and effective source of information for you.  We welcome your feedback and input to help make this an effective tool of information.

 To register a new student you will need to following information.

  •  A copy of your child's birth certificate.
  •  A copy of your child's most current immunization record.  If your child is exempt, we have a form for you to sign.
  • If your child is on any medication that needs to be administered at school, including non-prescription medications, we will have you fill out a permission form.  We will also need a prescription from a doctor and the medication in its original bottle.

Picking Up Student Work

Emergency Notification System

Alert Solution is in full swing notifying parents of unexcused absences and tardies via phone number, email and text. If you are receiving alerts in error please call BMS at970-884-9592. If you would like to edit your contact information, log on to PowerSchool and edit from Alert link. Parent Letter with PowerSchool log on and Alert Solution Information Letter was sent home with students this week. If you did not receive this information, please email your request to jecheverri@bayfield.k12.co.us


District Facebook Page

The Bayfield School District will be going live with its own Facebook page on Tuesday, September 2. The page is called "Bayfield School District" and is set up as an information only page, meaning that whoever chooses to like the page and follow the updates will not be able to comment on any posts or post any pictures to the page. The goal of this Facebook page is to keep parents informed, and also to be used as another avenue to send out alerts via Alert Solutions. This page is also the only "official" Facebook page for the district. There are several pages out there that have been created by parents to keep the public informed of various activities in the district. While these pages are informative, the information on them is not coming straight from the district. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Ali Dyer at the District office (adyer@bayfield.k12.co.us).
