Effective January 7, 2012, when your student is absent you will have up to 72 hours after your child has been absent to verify/clear your student’s absences (via note, email- firstname.lastname@example.org, phone call to school, or submit a doctor’s note). If absences are not verified within the 72 hours, the absent/absences will be considered unexcused. Note: Once our attendance month accounting cycle closes due to non-verification we cannot overwrite or change that absent/absences.

Dear Bridgeway Parents,
Welcome back to another exciting new school year! I would like to extend a warm welcome to our new families and returning students. The Staff and I are looking forward to working with you and your children this year. We are committed to continuing the excellent educational program for every child at Bridgeway.
Your child will receive an information packet the first day of school with the following forms: nurse alert form, lunch application, health insurance form, school emergency card, and school instructional calendar. All of the information will be in an envelope, so please take the time to go over the packet and return the necessary documents by Friday, August 19th. The lunch application form has to be resubmitted yearly. Please update the emergency card information. Information from the card is used to input all student information for the school year. If you have a student with a serious health condition, please send the nurse alert form to the office immediately. Our school handbook will be handed out at Back to School Night to give teachers an opportunity to go over the handbook with our parents.
Your child’s suggested donation list of school supplies is available on our school website. School supplies are readily available at any local supply store such as Target or Wal-Mart.
School hours for regular days are from 8:00-2:30 for 4th -8th grades, and 8:10-2:30 for 1st -3rd grades.

Collaboration/minimum day school hours for 1st-8th grade students are from 8:00-12:45 p.m. The district instructional calendar and the minimum/collaboration day calendar are available through the district website www.wusd.k12.ca.us .
Bridgeway is currently an impacted school and some of our newly enrolled students will be overflowed to another campus. If your child is going to be affected by our impacted enrollment status, you will receive notification from the district office or our school office will notify you of your child’s placement for this school year.
The School Uniform Policy is the same as last year. The district website clearly defines and gives samples of what is acceptable and meets our uniform requirements. Thank you to our parents for supporting our school uniform policy.
Our Back to School Night for 6th-8th grades will be on Wednesday, August 31st, from 5:30-7:00 p.m. Back to School Night for Kindergarten- 5th grades will be on Wednesday, September 7th, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Come and meet your child’s teacher and learn what we have planned for this school year.
The long awaited class lists will be posted on Friday, August 12th, by 5:00 p.m. Changes to this class may be made as needed. Our 6th-8th grade students may come by on August 15th or 16th, from 10-4 in the office to pick up their class schedules. Incoming 7th graders will need to have their TDAP immunization completed before they can pick up their schedule and attend school. There is no grace period for the TDAP immunization.
If we can be of any assistance to you before school starts, please feel free to contact the school office at 375-7778. We look forward to welcoming everyone back Wednesday, August 17th. See you at the school hive!
