Parenting and trauma expert, Jen Mundy, spoke with our community about ways to talk to children about traumatic events. Read on for some take away points from the discussion!
Director's Note, November 26: Talking to your Child about Tragic Events, Next Coffee Chat, Opportunity to Learn about Hot Lunch Program, and More!
We hope that this message finds you all well and ready for a return to the routines of school. We have missed seeing your children and hearing their laughter! Even though our school had minimal impact from the fires, while we were away, our entire school received a thorough restoration which included cleaning in both our classrooms and outdoor spaces, deodorization and the replacement of all of our air filters. We are grateful that you all are safe. Even though we were not in school for several weeks, our community came together in big ways to give back to those impacted by the shooting and the fires. Thank you for your generous spirits and for coming together in the true and caring spirit of Bridges! As we have missed five instructional days due to the fires, our teachers will be covering a lot of ground in their classes before winter break. Especially after an extended break, attendance is very important for your children’s continued academic success, so let’s push through together in these last weeks of 2018! So long as your child is not sick, please make sure they are attending school on time!
Dr. Kelly and Ms. Cindy wish all of our Bridges Families and staff a Happy Thanksgiving! We are so grateful for each and every one of you.

The Bridges Board of Directors and the administration have decided to cancel school through Friday, November 16th as a result of cleaning, restoration, and assessment that needs to be done at our school site as a result of the fires. As the week of November 19th-23rd is Fall Break, we look forward to our students' return on Monday, November 26th.
There will be no school on Tuesday, November 13th, as a result of the continued impact the fires are having on our community.
