New Information for Bridges Families: Our Pathway Forward

We have heard your concerns around the uncertainty you have about returning to school in the Fall. As we head into Memorial Day Weekend and round the corner to summer, we want to assure you that Bridges is committed to providing a flexible menu of options for our return to school in the Fall. We have discovered that every family has a different concern that they prioritize as the most important. Our Bridges "Return to School Task Force" comprised of 30+ site-based and home school teachers, parents, administration, board members, and staff is at the leading edge of the research and creation of programs that will best meet the needs of our families and that retain our core school values.
