Bear Pride: Respect, Responsibility, Be Safe, Do Your Best
October 9, 2020
Our free meal program has been extended through December 31, 2020, as provided by the United States Department of Agriculture. All students enrolled in the school district — regardless of the learning model — can receive free breakfast and lunch every day. It is possible that the program could end before December 31 if the funding is depleted.
Milk is included in the price of a breakfast and lunch meal. Students who take milk only at meals will be charged $0.50 per carton. Extra milks are not allowed at this time. Please know that if your child is bringing lunch from home and ordering milk they will be charged $.50.

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.

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. We have opened the barricades in the afternoon to let parents through to Hwy 246, but there is no entry.
