Please RSVP online immediately if your child will be able to attend the Bridge program on July 13th – 17th from 9AM – 3PM. Check the website often for details in the days leading up to the Bridge Program. Please save the date for a family orientation on the last day of Summer Bridge on Friday July 17th from 9AM- 12PM.
The schedule of the week is as follows:
Monday - 9:00 AM – 3:00 AM

Thursday - 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Friday - FAMILY ORIENTATION 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM followed by pot luck lunch in the garden.
What to bring:
Your child does not need to bring anything except a smile on the first day! If you would like you can pack them a lunch. We will NOT have breakfast provided, but we will take the students off site to have school lunch at a neighboring school. So, providing lunch is optional. We will dismiss each day at 3:00PM SHARP. We will be arriving back to school late on Wednesday because we are taking an off site trip. West Prep will send all of the necessary forms for you to complete on Day 1 of Summer Bridge.
How can parents help?
We will be having a family orientation on Friday followed by a pot-luck lunch in the garden. If you are able to do so, please bring a dish on that day. We may also need parents help to chaperone the trip if you are interested.
At the family orientation on Friday we will be going over the rules and procedures for the upcoming school year as well as providing information about uniforms, consent forms, and supply lists. Please feel free to email email@example.com for information regarding the Summer Bridge program.
