Summer 2022: Bridges Foundations

We are so excited for the summer!

Before you move onto campus, we have several items for you to review and sign. We will go over all these items at Spring Into Bridges and review important details during the parent meetings at move-in.

1. Our Student Handbook is a great resource to learn about Bridges, our staff, dates for summer, the summer schedule, class descriptions, behavior guidelines, and a packing list. If you would like a printed copy, just ask and we will mail you one.

 

2. Our Parent Information sheet has staff contact information, important dates, and parent FAQs.

3. The Student Registration link allows you to tell us about yourself and to sign up for your elective and evening activity preferences. 

4. We will be busy this summer! We need consent forms for Furman University, medical information that we will keep on-hand, and specific forms for specific field trips. You can find the needed forms here and the Furman Computer Use form here. If you did not receive these at Spring into Bridges, you can either print them and mail completed forms to our office (3300 Poinsett HWY, Greenville, SC 29613) or request that we print them and deliver them to you.

NEW: We are planning an adventure at Camp Hannon and we received their consent for AFTER Spring Into Bridges, so everyone needs to print and complete this form.
