Parent Resources

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; we will attempt to make that resource available here.


BYDS has partnered with Congregation Beth Yeshurun to deliver a high-quality kosher dining program. If you are interested in signing up for our hot lunch program, please log in to your Blackbaud account and click on the hot lunch form. Please note that the deadline is August 4, 2023. To purchase by semester, please open the semester lunch order form and choose the semester that you would like. To purchase for the whole year, please open the full-year lunch order form. Hot Lunch Sign UP for Fall and/or Spring

If you have any questions, please contact about service, system, or payment issues. Many thanks!

Here are a few quick facts about the lunch program:

  1. Lunch will be prepared in the kosher kitchen at Congregation Beth Yeshurun.
  2. Lunch choices will include a hot bar, salad bar, deli and pasta options, and fresh fruit served 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.
  4. Payment per student/per semester is nonrefundable.

School Health Forms

Student Health Form : Please log into Blackbaud and click the banner at the top of the page that says you have a FORM to review. We are required to have updated Student Health Forms and Immunization Records on file in the clinic for each student prior to the first day of school. Please note that our returning students’ forms do not require a physician’s signature. New students’ Health Forms require a physician’s signature.
