LEAVING BRIDGE?

If your child will not be attending Bridge next year, please come to school any weekday between 8:00 and 3:00 to fill out a simple withdrawal form and return your child’s chromebook.  

This will allow us to send your child’s transcript to their next school and offer a spot to the next student on our waiting list.

 

VACCINATIONS

We strongly encourage everyone to be vaccinated; there is still time for students to be fully vaccinated by the time school begins.

We understand people’s hesitancy about vaccines, but it is important to keep in mind that over four million people from around the world have died of Covid; there are no known cases of anyone dying from the vaccine.  Covid is a much, much greater risk than the vaccination!
