Welcome to Bayfield High School

“Positive people, positive communication, positive interactions and positive work and team cultures produce positive results. Every person, every career, every organization, every family and every team will have to overcome negativity, adversity and challenges to define themselves and create success. Optimism, trust, enthusiasm, love, purpose, joy, passion, and spirit to live, work, and perform at a higher level; to build and lead successful teams; to overcome adversity in life and at work; to share contagious energy with staff and students to bring out the best in others and in yourself; and to overcome all negative people and negative situations that threaten to sabotage your health, family, team and success.” –The Energy Bus, Jon Gordon. We have built and implemented amazing opportunities for our students and staff over the past few years. I am excited to continue focusing our positive energy on the great things that we have planned for Bayfield High School students.
Leon Hanhardt - Principal

Track 2017

The first track meet of the season will be on March 11, 2017, in Farmington, New Mexico. This meet will not allow athletes to qualify for state because of its location in New Mexico but is still a good experience for the athletes. Wish all the athletes good luck!
