Mask Wear & Care
We have had volunteers making masks for students, and this is greatly appreciated! We use these with students from time to time. Masks are readily available now more than in March, so they are easier to find. Let us know if this is a problem for you.
PLUS is a free after school program for students who meet state targeted services qualifications and criteria. Our strategy is to engage youth during out-of-school time such as homework assistance and work on academic skills through creative and fun activities. PLUS will start on October 19th and will run through November 19th, in person Monday through Thursday each week. We'll meet after school until 4:30pm. Spring dates are tentatively February through April.
Registration forms will be emailed to parents the week of October 5th. If you do not receive the registration link, please talk to your child's teacher or contact Sarah VanSickle (507-664-3655, email@example.com) if you think your child would qualify for Plus programming.

Change of Plans
As previously communicated, construction of the new roundabout at the intersection of Highway 246 (Division Street) and Jefferson Parkway will continue beyond the start of school. The current timeline has the project concluding around October 23rd. The roundabout is paved, and they are completing the additional work such as electrical, striping, and signage.
Vehicles are not allowed to use the Bridgewater Elementary parking lot as a shortcut from Jefferson Parkway to Highway 246 (Division Street.) School busses will be permitted to pass through the Bridgewater parking lots to help with the bus route times for students. We thank the Northfield Police Department for their assistance in supporting our traffic management.
