  • 6th Grade PARENTS!  We need your help.  Just in case we are not able to take graduation pictures, we have a back up plan for the yearbook.  Boys:  Please dress in khakis and a button down shirt.  Blazer is optional. Girls:  Wear a dress (any color) and nice shoes.  You can look through previous yearbooks for examples. Please snap a photo of your child OUTSIDE in daylight.  This can be taken with your phones if that's all you have available.  Please take 2-3 and send them to bayouannualstaff@gmail.com with your child's name as the subject.  We will only use these for the yearbook if our regularly scheduled photos aren't able to be taken due to COVID-19.  We need these by Friday, April 17th. Thank you!


  • Driver’s Ed is open to anyone that will be 14 years old or older by June 1st.  Please e-mail keithaycock@bayouacademy.net with any questions.  Most questions can be answered on the pdf document located in this week's announcement e-mail.
  • Parents - we are trying to find things for our yearbook.  We are specifically looking for any Tennis photos that you may have taken at practices, etc. as well as Track photos.  Even just a photo of your child practicing will help out.  Any photos from ANY event that you think would be helpful, please e-mail to bayouannualstaff@gmail.com as soon as possible.  We are going to need your help collecting these photos, so please be watching for photo requests in the next couple of weeks.  Thank you!
