Dear Twelve Bridges families,


TBE is planning a drive-thru parade on June 5th! Families will drive through the parking lot and get a chance to wave and say goodbye to the staff and teachers of TBE. To avoid disruptions to traffic, please see the information below for directions on the specific route to follow.


Lost and found is out in front of the school now through Thursday evening!


Our plans for returning textbooks, library books, Chromebooks, and distributing students' personal belongings as well as the yearbooks will take place on Monday, June 1st, and Tuesday, June 2nd depending on the student's grade level.


We will also be distributing any Lincoln Potters vouchers that were purchased during our fundraiser. The Lincoln Potter season is planning to start in July.


Our process is aimed at keeping everyone safe while creating an efficient system for material return/pick-up. Teachers and staff will be wearing appropriate protective gear to ensure everyone's safety. We are asking that families please remain in your car during the pick-up/drop-off with the exception of the Chromebook return location.


There is a lot of information. Please let me know if you have any questions.


Please note, Chromebook returns will take place in the bus pick-up off of Twelve Bridges Drive during all pick-up/drop-off times. All Chromebooks will be visually inspected and turned on to ensure they are in working order at drop-off. Please don't forget to bring the chargers. If you have multiple Chromebooks from different schools, please check the asset number on your receipt with the asset number on the Chromebook to ensure a match. This will make your check-in procedure much quicker.


Don't forget, Twelve Bridges Elementary is having a virtual book fair! The book fair has always been one of the best ways to support the TBE library. A portion of all purchases get credited back to the library! See below for more details.


Take care and stay safe,


Will Middleton

Families will need to return any textbooks, library books, classroom books, and any work the teacher needs to collect (if applicable). Chromebooks will be returned in a separate location.

Teachers will distribute artwork, personal belongings, Potters vouchers, and yearbooks if applicable.

TBE Drive-Thru Parade on June 5th!

Come celebrate the start of summer and say goodbye to the TBE staff in a drive-thru parade on June 5th! We have staggered start times by grade level and have created a "parade route" to avoid traffic problems. To maintain social distancing and comply with the guidance from the county, we ask that everyone stay in their cars the entire time and only members from the same household should be in each car.


Cars should start on Southcreek Drive and turn left onto Eastridge Drive. Take another left into the park entrance. The "parade" will take place in the TBE parking lot, starting at the park and going down past the multi, admin building, and kindergarten building. Teachers and staff will be standing along the sidewalk to say goodbye as you proceed through the parking lot. Traffic will flow in reverse of normal in our main parking area. Upon exiting, please turn left onto Eastridge Drive or go straight onto Glenveagh Lane.


Parade Start Time


  • TK & K at 11:00
  • 1st-11:10
  • 2nd-11:20
  • 3rd-11:30
  • 4th-11:40
  • 5th-11:50
  • If you have students in multiple grade levels, pick the time that works best for you.

Start on Southcreek Drive, heading towards Eastridge. Make a left onto Eastridge.

Six Flags Read to Succeed

Many of you participated in the Six Flags Read to Succeed Program this year! If your student read and logged at least 6 hours of recreational reading using their online portal, they have earned a free ticket to Six Flags!

As you know, parks are currently closed and they do not know when they will be reopening. Due to the circumstances, they are not able to put valid dates on the tickets because they want to be sure that they can give everyone plenty of time to visit the park. Instead of issuing tickets as they have done in the past, students will receive a certificate with a special code. When parks re-open, you can use this code to access and download their ticket online. Student certificates should be available on May 11th in the Six Flags online portal. If you have any questions, please email Ms. Bremner at dbremner@wpusd.org.
