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.

April 21st Update: Grading During Distance Learning

Welcome back from spring break! Usually the Monday following spring break is a time of anticipation as we round the corner to the end of the school year. This year, the energy doesn't feel quite the same. Nonetheless, we are keeping our momentum going, and we genuinely hope that you are all still staying safe, sane, and healthy. ❤

Our teachers and administration met to articulate our priorities around grading during Distance Learning, and based upon concerns for equity and the vast degree of various challenges families in our community are experiencing, we have decided to implement a PASS/FAIL system for grading for our final semester/trimester in K-5 and Middle School.
