Sent via email on 4.24.20: This message is from Bak MSOA to the parents of “NEW” students, who will be attending Bak for the 2020-21 school year. 

Due to the current restrictions we are unable to have an in-person New Student Registration, so we are sending you the course selection sheet and other pertinent information for the 2020-21 school year (SY21). Please ensure that you read these directions and follow them explicitly. Failure to submit the proper documents will result in a delay of your child’s registration and/or class schedule for SY21.

We have mailed, via the United States Postal Service to the address listed on your Choice application, the following for the 2020-21 school year:

  • SY21 Course Selection Sheet
