Good Morning!

Here is the latest news from Bridge Academy:

VACCINATIONS

Our vaccine clinic was a big success, with 76 people getting vaccinated!

Vaccinations are now very easy to get: Walgreens on 9640 North Ave (203-334-6978) and Rite Aid at 1060 E. Main Street (203-382-0009) offer the Pfizer vaccine, same-day. It is recommended to call beforehand but they do accept walk-ins. 

Covid has killed millions of people worldwide and it is preventable.  Vaccinations are safe and effective.  We strongly encourage everyone to get vaccinated.

SUMMER ACTIVITIES

We like to keep our students active and learning throughout the summer.  In addition to summer school here at Bridge, we are partnering with local organizations to offer students high quality activities this summer.

I will keep you informed as more opportunities become available. For now, here is what we have to offer:

  • Free swim lessons
    • Urban Scholars Day Camp: Run by a Bridge Academy alumni, this is a great free camp that provides transportation and yummy food!
      • Flyer attached below
  • Free violin lessons

Please respond to this email if you are interested in any of these programs!

 

MIDDLE SCHOOL TESTING

We are working on make-up testing next week.  We will take students from class to complete assessments and will have some students log on remotely on Wednesday to finish as well. 

 

Students who are remote and have not finished a test need to check their email next Tuesday and Wednesday morning for testing information. 

 

This means that for most students next Wednesday will be a normal Achieve3000 and support meeting day. 

Our next (and last!) test is the NWEA MAP Math test.  

    • We will be administering this test to in-person students the week of June 7th.  
  • Remote students need to come to school that Wednesday, June 9, to take the test.

Thank you for your support during the administration of these important assessments!

 

LEAVING BRIDGE?

Please respond to this email to let us know If your child will NOT be attending Bridge Academy next year.   This will allow us to give their spot to another student.

 

NO SCHOOL

There is no school this Monday, May 31, for Memorial Day. Enjoy!

FREE USE OF WASHER/DRYER

We have just installed a washer and dryer in school for free use by families; detergent is included!  

If you find doing laundry inconvenient and expensive, you have two options for doing laundry here at Bridge:

  1. Your student can bring a load of laundry with them to school and they or we can wash and dry it while they are in class.
  2. A parent can reach out to me or Mr. Elliott to let us know when you would like to come in after school or on the weekend and we will reserve the washer and dryer for your use. 

Thank you!
