March 16th Update: Access to Technology and Lending Chromebooks

 
Dear Bridges Families: 

Staff will be on campus in the MPR this Wednesday, March 16th between the hours of  10-12 to hand out devices to families in need.  The Chromebooks operate using a bridgescharter.org  email account to login.  If your child does not have a login we are happy to assist by establishing a temporary account for you or your child.

In addition, we would like to share many telecommunication companies are offering support at this time that families might find helpful:

Comcast: The cable giant is offering free access to its Xfinity WiFi hot spots for everyone, including non-subscribers, for the 60 days. It's also providing unlimited data to its customers for no extra charge and is not disconnecting internet service or charging late fees for customers who say they can't pay their bills. The company is also providing 60 days of free basic internet service to new customers.

AT&T: The cable, phone and media giant is suspending the termination of wireless, home phone or broadband service when customers can't pay their bills because of coronavirus disruptions. The company is also waiving related late fees. Like Comcast, AT&T is also providing free access to its public WiFi hot spots. The company also said its consumer home internet wireline customers and fixed wireless internet customers would receive unlimited data.

Verizon: Verizon said it is waiving late fees and suspending service termination for customers "negatively impacted by the global crisis."

T-Mobile: The mobile phone service provider is providing unlimited data to all current customers who have plans with data for the next 60 days. It will also provide additional data to mobile hotspot users.

We are so blessed to be part of a wonderful community and look forward to continuing to support the needs of our families at this challenging time.

In partnership,
Dr. Kelly and Ms. Cindy
