Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

Each day our Bailey students are greeted with smiles in a climate of mutual respect in a genuine and caring environment. We pride ourselves on providing an excellent and challenging education for our students. We strive to create a place where students love to learn and a place that parents love to send their children. We are eager to connect with you in an effort to provide an experience that brings the school day to life, and also provides information, guidance, opportunities to you as parents supporting your elementary child(ren). Partnering with our staff, parents, and community we work together to create Bailey Elementary.

Calendars & Website
School and District calendars are available on our website at www.owassops.org. You are able to customize your views for single sites, multiple sites, or the district as a whole. This calendar serves as our official calendar for school. Please be sure to save the link! Our school and district websites are also a great source of information.

Emails & Text Messages
Our school and district periodically send out emails and/or text messages for parents via our School Messenger system. Your contact information is automatically enrolled in this via our student information system with the contact information you provide. This is helpful for reminders for our site, school closings, and district notices.

Facebook Pages
Social media has transformed our ability to connect with families. Please consider following our school site page or our Bailey Booster Club page. Follow this LINK for more details! 

Grade Level Facebook Pages
These grade-level specific pages are also an excellent resource for you as a parent.  These are closed groups that you have to request access to in order to gain access. You can locate the specific page names on our website under the Facebook Pages tab.  With this tool, we are able to capture your child’s day and bring it to life for you! On these pages, you will receive helpful information, reminders, pictures, and videos!  This has become a popular favorite of our parents!  Follow this LINK for more details! 

Get Involved
There are a variety of ways to be involved here at Bailey. We love our volunteers!  Whether you would like to lend a hand in our workroom making copies or would like to lend time to read with students…we have a place for you!  You can simply let your child’s teacher know that you are available and what you would be comfortable doing.  You can also become a part of our Bailey Booster Club (BBC) to assist with other volunteer and event efforts.  More information is available on their Facebook page.

Our office is here to support our families. Should you have a question or need assistance, please contact our office!

Looking forward to great things this year…

Ashley Hearn, Principal
