Bailey Tours for Rising 7th Graders

 Dear Current 6th Grade Parents, 

We would like to offer your student the opportunity to tour Bailey Middle School prior to the 2021-2022 school year. Due to the cancellation of the 2020 Transition Camp and remote learning, many of the current 6th graders (rising 7th graders) are unfamiliar with the campus. Not all topics covered at Transition Camp are relevant to rising 7th graders, however, they may benefit from a tour of the campus. Tours will be offered Friday, August 6th. Follow the link below to register for a time slot. 


Please note: Bailey will be adhering to current Austin ISD COVID 19 safety protocols which include: filling out the Covid 19 Screener App (Green Screen), taking temperatures at the door, wearing masks at all times, and remaining 6 feet apart, whenever possible.
