Big picture

Dear Twelve Bridges families,

Congratulations on finishing the first two days of distance learning! I know there were a few bumps, but I'm hoping things will go more smoothly this week. You may not see it on your end, but I have never seen teachers work longer and harder. I am confident we will see the dividends of their efforts as we work together to support our kids.


Some of you experienced login issues and technical glitches. I believe we were able to resolve all of our login issues. Please call the office if you have any login issues and we will do our best to help out. Our education tech specialist informed us that Google was experiencing a lot of issues last week and that led to some of the challenges with Google Meet. I'm crossing my fingers that Google has taken care of those issues.


Thank you for your continued support and patience. I heard from so many teachers that parents were with their child and ready to help whenever needed. Thank you for that! This challenge will take a village, and I’m so proud of ours! Please let us know how we can support your family. We are all in this together!


Take care and be safe,


Will Middleton
