I don't think you can bypass this. That is the screen that occurs when Windows is setting up a new profile. Windows has always done this, but Windows 10 presents it in a different way.

This screen will not occur after the first time a given user signs on.

This isn't something that I know about and hadn't thought about.  
John Hurst's response sounds reasonable.
What I find rather striking is that there would be a user profile set up on a computer, each time a user logs in to a different computer.  As I said, I hadn't thought about it.  One would ask: what else could happen in view of how Windows works?
I suppose a workaround would be to have generic logins that are shared.  But that may defeat your purposes.

"This policy setting allows you to control whether users see the first sign-in animation when signing in to the computer for the first time.  This applies to both the first user of the computer who completes the initial setup and users who are added to the computer later.  It also controls if Microsoft account users will be offered the opt-in prompt for services during their first sign-in.

If you enable this policy setting, Microsoft account users will see the opt-in prompt for services, and users with other accounts will see the sign-in animation.

If you disable this policy setting, users will not see the animation and Microsoft account users will not see the opt-in prompt for services.

If you do not configure this policy setting, the user who completes the initial Windows setup will see the animation during their first sign-in. If the first user had already completed the initial setup and this policy setting is not configured, users new to this computer will not see the animation."

@stevekee65  - You either leave as natively supplied or else try the local Group Policy suggested. Did you try?

The correct answer is "Yes" you can bypass this!!!....users in our environment dont see it thanks to the GPO stated earlier being set.
