BRIDGETON, N.J. — Bridgeton Public Schools is giving students and parents the option for future after-school, Saturday, and Summer learning camps and programs.

Since the coronavirus pandemic began to impact the United States last year, the district has offered meal distribution to students. As certain COVID-19 restrictions are loosened and case numbers are down in New Jersey and nationwide, the district is also administering surveys to see how parents and students would feel about the school’s possible plans of holding certain after-school programs to further their education from April 17 until June 12.

Additionally, Bridgeton Public Schools is asking community members about their views on potential Saturday learning camps during that same time frame.

As parents are searching for work and do not want to leave their children unattended during the school year and the summer, Bridgeton Public Schools have continued to show their support for the community, as it is also offering a student summer learning program. The program would begin on July 6 and end August 9.

The survey is located on the Bridgeton Public Schools website.
