Big picture

Dear Twelve Bridges families,

I hope you all enjoyed your three day weekend!


This week, we will begin checking out books to students from the library. Below, Ms. Bremner has described the process to access the school's library collection online and request books.


Please see below for a webinar provided by the district to help support your family during distance learning.


Also, just a quick reminder to make sure everyone is wearing appropriate clothing as we continue in a distance learning format. Depending on the view your student is using in Google Meet, you may not see yourself or your student on the screen, but indeed, you can be seen. If the camera is on, we can see you.


Thanks for your support!
Take care and be safe,


Will Middleton
