    From John Blanck, Acting Principal during Summer, 2020:

    Hello!  I have been the acting Principal for Bridlemile since mid-June. I was brought on to help the school following the departure of Mr. Pearson. Over the summer I was fortunate to be a member of the panel at Bridlemile Elementary, tasked with selecting the new Principal, one who would be best suited to move the school to the next level. I am very happy to announce that Jerome Townsend has accepted the position.

    Jerome will be officially joining Bridlemile on August 24th, and undoubtedly will have a great deal to do right away. I hope that the patience, positive spirit, and offers of support you showed me during my time here will similarly extend towards Jerome.

    Over the summer we were also able to fulfill needed staff positions.  We worked on preparations for welcoming a new special education early childhood classroom that will serve about 15 students, and we worked diligently and continuously making ongoing adjustments to the changing plans for the way we could safely give instruction during the pandemic.

    We are preparing the multiple details that need to be done for the Comprehensive Distance Learning, including finding ways for students to get needed technology tools, solidifying schedules for their distance learning, and ensuring our students and their families feel confident that they are part of a supportive community.

    This school community is a highly impressive one, and which contains a truly caring, dedicated staff.

    My best wishes to you all for this school year.
