Parent Resources

Please bear with us as we continue to build a special private section just for our BYDS parents. In the meantime, below you will find a list of our most used links for parents.

We hope that this section will be useful to you as you navigate your child’s BYDS experience from infant through fifth grade. Should you ever need an additional tool or have a suggestion, please email marketing@byds.org; we will attempt to make that resource available here.

BYDS has partnered with The Emery/Weinger School to deliver a high-quality kosher dining program.

BYDS and the PTO split duties for our lunch program. The school will administer the Lunch Program, including the lunch service, ordering, and payments, while the PTO volunteers will serve lunch daily. If you have any questions, please contact lunch@byds.org about service, system, or payment issues. For comments and compliments, you may also email S0097@sagedining.com. Many thanks!

Here are a few quick facts about the lunch program:

  1. Lunch will be prepared in the kosher kitchen at The Emery/Weiner School and transported daily to BYDS.
  2. Lunch choices will include a hot bar, salad bar, deli options, fruit bar and a pasta bar. Daily options on any given day will either be entirely parve (when serving meat), or entirely dairy (no meat will be served on these days).
  3. The chef determines all menu options and will provide BYDS with planned menus ahead of time.
  4. Enrollment for the lunch program is per semester at a cost of $550/per student/per semester, from CDO through 5th grade.
  5. You can enroll after the semester begins. However, the cost remains $550 per student/per semester.
  6. Payment per student/per semester is nonrefundable.
  7. Payments can be made in full via PayPal or paper check OR roll payment into your FACTS payments.
  8. BYDS will provide lunch for those who are attending field trips on any given day.
