Attendance

We will be taking attendance more formally this year. BUT at Bridger is about connecting with families and making sure we stay connected to meet your student's needs.


We monitor attendance and check in to make sure everything is okay. If you have a day that you know your child can't participate, please feel free to email your teacher first.


There will be more than one way to have your student counted in school for the day. We will share more information next week.
