A Letter From Jordan Mills

January 8, 2021

Dear Bridgeport Families,

Happy new year! I hope you enjoyed a restful winter break and are as excited as I am about 2021! I know the question on many of our minds right now is about when and how students will return to school. Our district is working to create a plan and will send an email update today with more information.

Materials distribution: In the meantime, we will plan to distribute materials for our students to use for distance learning. This will be a contactless pick-up at the Bridgeport main entrance. Come on your student’s grade level day anytime from 8:00-4:00. Park your car and walk up to the main entrance wearing a mask and keeping distance from others. You’ll find your student’s items in their teacher’s box. We’ll group all sibling’s materials with those of the oldest sibling. If you have a question while you’re there, ring the doorbell. Here is the schedule:

5th grade: Friday, January 22 from 8:00-4:00

4th grade: Monday, January 25 from 8:00-4:00

3rd grade: Tuesday, January 26 from 8:00-4:00

2nd grade: Wednesday, January 27 from 8:00-4:00

1st grade: Thursday, January 28 from 8:00-4:00

Kindergarten: Friday, January 29 from 8:00-4:00

*Sibling materials will be grouped with the oldest sibling’s class and available for pick up on the oldest sibling’s pick up date.

Reviewing expectations: The new year is a great time to revisit learning expectations with students. You may notice teachers doing this with students during these first weeks back from the break. Here are a few expectations you may consider reviewing at home:

  • Remove toys and distracting materials from the student’s learning area.

  • Make sure your student knows how to ask for help from the teacher and understands class expectations for raising hands and responding to teacher questions.

  • Ask your student to show you how to access their work and reach out to your teacher with questions.

No Place for Hate hearts: Congratulations to our Bridgeport bulldogs for completing their first No Place for Hate activity! And thank you to our student ambassadors for your work on this project! If your student has not yet mailed their paper heart back to the school, please do this as soon as possible so that we can complete our community display.

Looking forward to another year with our incredible students. As always, please reach out anytime.

See how you can support our TTSD community by volunteering or by donation!

Mr. Karr's Counseling Corner

Hi Bridgeport families,

I hope you are doing well. I created a space where members of our community could find counseling, food, and other community resources. I hope this website will help us stay connected during this unsettling time. On the website you will find resources for supporting students at home, such as breathing and relaxation tools, ways to support children in identifying their emotions, and strategies for managing difficult behaviors. I will also post read alouds periodically and will be picking stories that seem relevant to the current time and the current needs of our students.

Thank you,

Jordan Karr
