NON-DISCRIMINATION ASSURANCES

Completion and submission of a lottery application does not  guarantee admission to, or constitute acceptance in, Bridge Elementary.  

Bridge Elementary is a public school open to all Utah students  without discrimination and on the same basis as other public schools  that may not discriminate in admission policies and practices. The  Office for Civil Rights (OCR) enforces four federal statutes that  prohibit discrimination in programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance from the Department of Education (ED). Bridge does not  discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, ability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, proficiency in English, national  origin, sexual orientation, or age.

Admission, enrollment, and transfer procedures will comply with Utah Code.

Lottery Information for 2023 - 2024 School Year

School of Choice: As a school of choice Bridge recognizes our model is not the right fit for every child. Some children thrive in the collaborative learning pod experience complete with multiple transitions daily, while other students may find the large learning pod with multiple transitions provide sensory overload and is not the ideal learning environment for the child. Parents and guardians need to carefully determine if the learning model provided by Bridge is the model that fits best for their child. 

Schedule a tour: Tours for next school year will begin December 5, 2022. To schedule a tour of the school please contact the office at (801)499-5180 or email our lead secretary, Lalani Williams at lwilliams@BridgeCharter.org Please let the office know WHICH grade(s) you are interested in touring. PLEASE NOTE - Tours for kindergarten are on hold until AFTER our February 21 lottery.

Intent to Return to Bridge: An email was sent to current students on December 5, 2022 with information about registering for the upcoming school year. Aspire registration was completed for current students to be registered for Bridge for the 2023 - 20224 school year. Students who do not complete the registration process by the closing date will have their spots opened in the general lottery.
