Fall/Winter Programs are coming to The Bridge Teen Center
Posted on Sep 9 2020 by Aaron Heldt
The Bridge Teen Center will release their Fall/Winter Program Magazine to students and the community on Wednesday, September 16th on their website. This Program Magazine will include details of afterschool programs and events taking place in October, November and December. Program sign-up will begin on Wednesday, September 23rd at 2:00PM right here. This is the first "semester-long" Program Magazine to be released since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
The Bridge will continue to offer a mixture of in-person programs and programs through Zoom. All afterschool programs will be limited to groups of 10 students or less, and students will only be permitted to sign up for one program per day. Students have the opportunity to visit The Bridge Teen Center Tuesday through Thursday if they are signed up in advance for a program.
To attend Friday Nights, students will have to sign up in advance for either the 6:30PM or 8:30PM timeslots. Group 1 will take place between 6:30PM – 8:00PM and Group 2 will take place between 8:30PM – 10:00PM. Our team will clean and disinfect student areas between 8:00PM and 8:30PM. For the time being, each Friday Night group will be limited to 40 students or less. This is a temporary requirement based on COVID-19 safety guidelines. All students must be picked up and dropped off promptly.
Advance Sign-Up Required
All students must be signed up in advance for a program or Friday night in order to attend The Bridge Teen Center. Drop-In hours have been temporarily suspended until further notice. Please do not drop off a student unless they are signed-up for a program or Friday night group.
