First Day Info

What do I need to bring on the first day of school?
For the first day of school, you should bring:
  • a folder containing notebook paper, a pen or pencil
  • your Summer Reading Assignment
  • your lunch or lunch money
Just a reminder, anything you bring with you during the first week of school, you will have to carry.   Lockers are not usually assigned until the end of the first week.  Do not bring a backpack until lockers are assigned.
What do I do when I arrive at Bailey?
Doors open at 7:55.  When you arrive at Bailey, you will report to your designated spaces (8th Graders in the Big Gym, 7th Graders in the Small Gym, and 6th graders in the Cafe). There will be Alpha Advisory lists by grade level posted on the wall. Find your last name on the list,  and report to your assigned classroom when dismissed.
If you don’t know where to go, don’t hesitate to ask a teacher, administrator, or any Bailey staff person to help you locate your Alpha Advisory.

When do we get our schedule?
Once you arrive at Alpha Advisory, your teacher will give you your schedule and answer any questions you may have. After about 10–15 minutes, the bell will ring and you will be released to your first-period class.  On Tuesday, you will report directly to your first-period class.
