Happy Friday! I hope the weekend brings you lots of time to relax, laugh, and have fun!
Just a quick note about the recently approved school calendar. The dates for Fall Break were incorrect. The correct dates are October 10 - 14, 2022. A new calendar will be approved by the board and our website will be updated to reflect the changes.
Please keep up on your emails and social media if possible as these are the first methods of communication with parents.
Stay safe and healthy and enjoy the weekend!
COVID Numbers and Mask Updates
Masks are required when a COVID positive person was in attendance and MAY have exposed others. According to the Health Department, potentially exposed students can come to school but must wear a mask for 10 days. As of today (Friday) at 6:30 am, only one grade, 2nd, will need to wear masks next week due to potential COVID exposure. If new information is provided this weekend that changes this status, we will reach out via email to parents.
We are tracking ALL COVID positive cases and at-home exposures as reported to us by parents, staff and the health department.. These are the numbers of reported positive staff and students over the past 7 days. PLEASE remember the above mask status may change based on information received from staff, parents and the health department over the weekend.
COVID + Students = 10
COVID + Staff = 0
As we have mentioned multiple times, Bridge is doing everything possible to keep our doors open for kids. We are so fortunate that our model has the benefit of multiple staff members in each classroom so the chance of us needing to shut our doors to move to digital learning due to lack of staff, is very remote.
Bridge Shirt Order
- Enter your oldest student's name in the notes. This will allow us to deliver shirts to the correct student.
- Order the CORRECT sizes - there are no refunds or replacements. Kid sizes are prefaced with a "Y" for youth. For example, "YS" is a youth small while "S" is an adult small.
Shirts include short and long sleeved tees, hoodies and crewneck sweatshirts. Styles keep updating based on the availability of youth sizes. Apparently shirts, like everything else, are impacted by COVID and vendor's struggles with transit and production.
This is the link to order online.
