Big picture

Dear Twelve Bridges families,


We are getting close! The first day of school is August 20th. In this email, you will find new information on materials pick-up and our Chromebook distribution. We are experiencing some problems with our student information system and our email lists. I will also post this message on our TBE app and on our school website. If you missed Part 1 of this information, you can check it out here!


Take care and be safe,


Will Middleton

  • Detailed information and access to the portal can be found here: PowerSchool Parent Portal

  • The ParentPortal must be updated before 8/17/20 at 5pm, after that, the Portal will shut down and families will need to come to the school office to update their information.
