From the Desk of Mrs. Rounds
It is crazy that it is already the first of September. Before you know it it will be "pumpkin spice" time followed by snow. Remember, Monday is Labor Day and there is no school.
Please keep reading for important updates and information.
As always, thank you for entrusting Bridge with your children's education.
See you Tuesday!
Parking Lot Reminders
Wow! On Thursday our parking lot was cleared by 3:46 - just 16 minutes after school released. Thank you for being patient and courteous and encouraging your students to follow the rules.
Don't forget, parents are ALWAYS invited to volunteer to help in the parking lot.Just show up 15 minutes before school is out, grab a yellow vest and ask the office how you can assist.
Rotations - This Week's Highlight - Specials
Individuals who are not vaccinated are encouraged to wear a mask. If a student or staff member tests positive for COVID, individuals who MAY HAVE been in close proximity (within 6 ft. for 15 minutes) will be notified and asked to:
- Quarantine for 10 days OR
- Return to school (if they have no symptoms) but MUST wear a mask for 10 days.
Bridge continues to use lots of measure to ensure the environment is sanitized and students are using good hand hygiene practices. Beginning Tuesday teachers will use an electrostatic sprayer at the end of each day to further disinfect the classroom area and furniture. These were graciously donated to Bridge last school year by Roy City.

- Fever or chills

FREE / REDUCED Meals Application
FREE / REDUCED status provides the school with extra funding to help support our Title I at-risk program which includes morning supervision and BASE as well as intervention support for struggling students. This past year it also provided additional assistance for some students in the form of an electronic debit card. It also ensures that if we are no longer able to offer free meals, parents are already qualified for free/reduced status.
Instructions for accessing ASPIRE can be found on our website or by calling the office (801)499-5180.
FREE Meals for Uniformed Military and First Responders - Lunch for Safety Program
Parents can donate to this program by dropping a check at the office with the notation "Lunch for Safety" or by using the DONATE icon on our website and paying online.
Students are learning about REFLECTION. This trait teaches students to review their learning to see what works and what ways they can improve.
Work with your students to practice these I WILL statements:
- Look back
- Listen to feedback
- Learn about myself
- Plan my next steps
- Reflect often
Our mission is to empower students to take ownership of their own learning. By learning, practicing and embracing these visible learning traits, students will have the skills needed to become accountable for their own lifelong learning. You can find the six Visible Learning traits on our website at Visible Learning
The mission of Bridge Elementary is to provide students with a personalized learning experience and empower them to take personal ownership and accountability for their own academic performance.
