Welcome Corporal Cyr!

It is our privilege to introduce to the Bayfield School District staff, students, parents and community Corporal Dan Cyr.  Corporal Cyr has been appointed as the newly established School Resource Officer for the District.  Corporal Cyr graduated from the Law Enforcement Training Academy of Colorado at Colorado State University in 1993 and began his career in Law Enforcement in 1994 at the La Plata County Sheriff’s Department.  In 1995 he joined the Bayfield Marshal’s Office as a Deputy before taking a position with the 6th Judicial District Attorney’s Office in 2000 as an investigator.  Corporal Cyr returned to the Bayfield Marshal’s Office in 2009.  Corporal Cyr is a lead instructor at the Southwest Law Enforcement Academy, PPCT instructor, firearms instructor, field training officer and training coordinator for the department. 

Welcome to Bayfield Elementary School! We are proud to be the “Mighty, Mighty Mustangs” and strive for excellence in academics, attendance, behavior and athletics. However, it is our supportive families, amazing staff and great kids that will make you feel right at home.


Some of the things that make our school special include:

  • There are quarterly "Awards" assemblies to honor attendance, citizenship and academics.
  • We have monthly "Citizenship" breakfasts.
  • Our PTSA does an outstanding job of fundraising for our school and we now have new books for our library and classrooms!
  • Our 4th and 5th grade student council members run a school store which is very popular. They work to make our school fun with dress up days and activities.
  • We have a worm composting bin at our school, which runs mostly on solar power. In the lunchroom we sort our food scraps to feed the worms.
  • We go to one of six “specials” every day. Specials classes are PE, Art, Computer, Library, Music or Spanish.

Grades 2 - 5 attend Bayfield Elementary School.  Each grade level averages 4-5 teachers with approximately 22-23 students per class. The school year runs from August 21st through May 18th with school hours of 7:55 - 3:05.

Registration packets and supply lists may be downloaded from our website.  To register your child, we will also need:

  • A copy of your child's birth certificate.
  • A copy of your child's most current immunization record.  If your child is exempt, we have a form for you to sign.
  • If your child is on any medication that needs to be administered at school, including non-prescription medications, we will have you fill out a permission form. We will also need a prescription from a doctor and the medication in its original bottle.
