Child Find today at Bridgeport School

Parents of children 5 years of age and under living in the Bridgeport School District are invited to a child developmental screening today, Thursday, Nov. 6 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Bridgeport Elementary School

"Developmental screening includes a brief assessment of a child's communication, fine motor, gross motor, cognitive, social emotional, and self-help skills. Identifying potential problems early and addressing these concerns can be a very effective way to avoid later educational problems," said a press release issued by the school district.

Parents who want more information can contact Lorena Lopez at the Bridgeport School District office, 686-5656, extension 224.
