FULL-TIME ONLINE STUDENTS

If your family has chosen to opt-out of in-person school, you must come to Bridge to pick up a chromebook before 3:00 this Friday.  Your students will not be able to do their work without a Bridge chromebook; they may not use their own devices.  When you come in we will help you log into your child’s gmail account.  Please call ahead between the hours of 8:30 and 3:00 to make an appointment to get your child’s chromebook.

Fully online students must log onto their first period google meet NO LATER than 7:45 on the days that they are “in school”.  They will receive a google meets invitation for their classes.  Students must check their gmail and google classrooms many times a day as this is how teachers will communicate with students. 

We will send your child their schedule of classes within the next few days. The basic schedule is included in the link to our hybrid model below.

IN-PERSON STUDENTS

Students who are coming to in-person school will be given their chromebooks and gmail log-in instructions on the first day they come in. 

Ensure that your children bring their chromebooks to school with them each day and charge them when they are at home.

Once they receive their chromebook, students must get into the habit of checking gmail and google classroom many times a day!

We would love it if you would join our Governing Council. This committee meets once a month on the first Monday of every month from 6 to 7:00 PM.  For the time being, we are meeting online through Zoom.  Being a part of the Council gives you insight into and input into the daily workings of your child’s school. Members only need to attend meetings; there are no other obligations.

Please respond to this email to let me know if you are interested in being a part of the Council; we would love to have you!

Thank you!
