Ardmore Elementary Resources During Covid-19 Break:
The Ardmore PTSA is working to post resources for parents and families, including links to the official BSD sites, where to get help, and learning websites and apps shared by other parents. If you have helpful resources to share with the community, please send to News@ArdmoreElementary.org for us to post here.
For the most recent official Bellevue School District information please see their website. You will find information on free meals for kids (new pickup location added), technology assistance, and BSD’s official learning resources. Your teachers and staff are working hard to develop online learning. If your family does not have access to a computer or tablet device, or if you do not have a connection to the internet, please complete this survey (English/Spanish). For additional technology help, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are experience hardship, please contact the Ardmore Family Center for resources during this difficult time.
