Parents/Guardians How to Update Your Child's Emergency Card

We have over a hundred students that DO NOT have an emergency card that is up-to-date. Parents, please set up an account in the Parent Portal before 10/12/18. Your child's access ID is an eight digit number beginning with "200-----" their password is the last 5 digits of the same number. Once you are in your child's account, select on the left hand side "TBE returning student". Update any information that needs to be updated. Please check off if you give your child permission for internet usage, photo in the yearbooks, and if there is an emergency. Please use this link to create your account. https://powerschool.wpusd.org/public/ If you need help please contact the office and we would be happy to help you!

Proof of Residency

Yes, it’s that time of year once again! Time to renew your Proof of Residency here at Twelve Bridges Elementary. Please bring in a copy of a current utility bill showing your address. Newly enrolled Kinder, TK and new students do not need to participate. Thank you for responding to our request so promptly!

TBE School App

Parents did you know you can download our free TBE school app in your app store? Just go to your app store and search "Twelve Bridges Elementary". Once you download the app you can enable push notifications so you don't miss out on what's happening at TBE.
