Bridger Kindergarten Newsletter
Hello Kindergarten Families,
The start of kindergarten naturally brings about some feelings of uncertainty for families, especially with the announcement that we will start the school year with a full comprehensive virtual model. We realize that families have many questions and there are feelings of anxiety around the start of the school year. Of course, this is true for families throughout PPS who have a student entering kindergarten. PPS recognizes that the roll out of a Comprehensive Distance Learning model at the kindergarten level has unique challenges and they are being thoughtful in creating a plan that addresses the specific developmental needs of our young learners.
Please continue to visit pps.net/fall2020 for the latest information, resources, messages to families and other important details from the district. Click here to send your questions or feedback about Fall 2020 directly to PPS.
