  • Helpful Resources

    Posted by BVE Web Admin on 3/16/2020

    We know that missing school isn't easy for our Gator family. It's so important to continue learning at home so our time together wasn't forgotten! We'd like to share some websites with you to help you keep our Gators learning, thinking, and growing! Kids can work on some of these sites on their own or together as a family! Try some of the experiments, solve problems, and go on a virtual field trip together!

    Please visit our Links page as well as specific resources that fit your child's needs on their grade level team page. 

    Communication is the key to a successful learning environment. We hope that your family stays healthy and safe, and we send our love and support!

  • Everyone Counts! Statistics in Schools Week

    Posted by BVE Web Admin on 3/6/2020

    Bayou Vista Elementary is participating in the U. S. Census Bureau's Statistics in Schools (SIS) program to unite schools around the country in an effort to count every child in the 2020 Census. 

    The national census is conducted every 10 years. Data from this census is used to determine funding for many programs including special education, classroom technology, teacher training, after-school programs, and school lunch assistance. 

    In mid-March, your family should begin receiving official Census 2020 mail with instructions on how to respond. By April 1, 2020, every home should receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. You will have three options for responding:

    *By phone
    *By mail

    Bayou Vista Elementary urges every family to participate. The Statistics in Schools flyer in English and Spanish can provide you with additional information for this important upcoming event. You can find these flyers in our Peachjar E-Flyers area.

  • Be Wary of Open Enrollment Scams

    Posted by Susan Dupre on 11/13/2019

    Two important deadlines are quickly approaching for adding or changing your health coverage if you use one of the following options: 

    • Medicare:  December 7
    • Affordable Care Act (ACA): December 15

    Gretchen Abraham from the FTC's Division of Consumer & Business Education has shared the following tips on the Federal Trade Commission's website to help you avoid being scammed:

    For Medicare:

    • There are no Medicare sales representatives. Anyone who tried to sell you Medicare insurance is a scammer. 
    • You do NOT have to join a prescription drug plan to keep your Medicare insurance. Medicare Part D is voluntary and has nothing to do with your regular Medicare coverage.
    • Telephone scammers posing as "official agents" may ask for personal information, offer free equipment or services, ask for a quick payment, or threaten you. Just hang up.
    • Help with Medicare is available at or 1-800-MEDICARE.

    For Affordable Care Act:

    • Compare plans and quality ratings at, where you can also enroll.
    • This year, you can also sign up for an ACA plan directly with certain certified partners.  Make sure a company is on the Certified Partner list before giving them your information. 
    • After you apply for ACA, you may get a phone call from the Marketplace asking you to verify information or supply additional information. If you are unsure about trusting the caller, ask the representative to mail you a letter with instructions for completing your application.
    • Help for ACA is available from the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596.  You can also meet with a local assistant in your community who will offer free assistance. Local assistance can be found through the Local Assistance tool.
