A Community of Learners Empowered Through Experience

Welcome to Bradford Elementary School! We're a student-centered community of learners working together to support student growth academically, socially and emotionally.  We believe that effective teaching and meaningful experiences empower young learners.  We provide hands-on learning and honor students' interests. With families as our partners, we strive to foster compassion, respect and a sense of belonging to the greater community. 

News & Updates

Early release Monday, April 8!

Monday your child will bring home some information and a pair of safety glasses to view the eclipse.

We checked to make sure the glasses coming home are on the approved list of the American Astronomical Society for eclipse viewing.  However, they should be used following directions and children should still be supervised while using them to avoid eye damage. 


 We follow our usual half day schedule on April 8. 

Students will be released at 11:45


Required state testing - VTCAP -

starts 4/9 for Grades 3-6.

Testing starts soon after 8 am.  Students who arrive after this time will not be allowed to enter their classroom until testing is over.  Please plan to have students at school on time.
