Baden will open its doors for students on Monday, August 28 at 9:10am. We kindly request that you utilize the parking lot at the Baden Community Center for student drop-off. On the first day of school, Prekindergarten and Kindergarten students will report to the multi-purpose room of the Baden Community Center. Their teachers will be holding signs with their names and grade levels for easy identification. Our school staff will be on hand to guide you to your child's teacher.

For students in grades 1 to 5, entry will be through the school's main doors, and they will proceed directly to their classrooms, where they will be greeted and directed by school staff to their respective classes.

Here is some important information about the upcoming school year. Please keep this information for your reference. See you soon.
