Bridges Program Information

Early Morning Care (EMC) is available from 7:00-7:40 AM Monday through Friday in Jacoba Hall. Parents are required to sign their children in at the time of their arrival. Supervision will be provided until 7:40 AM, at which time students will be escorted to their respective buildings. If the school opening is delayed due to inclement weather, then EMC will also be delayed in opening by that same given amount of time. If you need to reach the EMC staff member (Alex Rommel) in the morning, please call 919.847.8205 ext. 351.

The After School Program operates Monday-Friday, beginning at 2:40 (first carpool) and ending at 6:00 PM. Generally, on early release days the After School program is closed. Please refer to the school calendar for any exceptions to this policy.

Following the school day, all students registered for After School go to Jacoba Hall and check in with the program staff. The afternoon begins with a snack and inside free play, followed by an optional homework session for grades 2 through 8 in the Media Center. Outside play is provided daily, weather permitting. Around 5 pm, all students remaining are consolidated to Jacoba Hall and/or the courtyard for additional playtime or a planned activity.

Upon registration, parents will receive a welcome letter with more specific information. Information regarding enrichment classes is shared throughout the year for classes offered school wide as well as enrichment offered only to Bridges students.

Parents or adults on the permission to pick up list, are required to sign out their child upon pick up. Please be aware there is a late fee of $10 for every 5-minute increment after the mandatory 6:00 PM pick up time. If school is dismissed or canceled due to inclement weather, Bridges is also canceled for the day. On such occasions, we ask that parents use every means possible to arrive safely at school to pick up their children so that school personnel may also safely make their way home.
