Polk County school officials are planning summer programs at Chilhowee Middle School, Copper Basin Middle School and PILA. Students in grades 6-7-8 will have the opportunity to prepare for the next grade and get a jump-start on what their teachers will expect next school year. The Summer Bridge Program for grades 6-7-8 will begin July 6 and continue through July 30. Activities will begin at 8:00 and continue to 2:00 each week day. The Summer Bridge program is FREE. Breakfast and lunch will be served. Bus transportation will be provided. Any supplies and materials needed will be given to students at no cost to them.
