Bradley Friday, April 3rd Update

Posted 04/04/2020

Hello Bradley Families,

We hope all of you are doing well and staying healthy. We have important news to share with you tonight from the superintendent and information about Tuesdays start of Remote Learning. 

First, With the health and safety of our students and staff at the heart of this difficult decision, DPS Leadership has announced that we continue with plans for Remote Learning for the rest of the 19-20 school year. 

Today’s decision means that we are canceling all extracurricular activities. In addition, playgrounds and athletic fields are closed until further notice to reinforce social distancing and prevent further spread of the virus. 

Over the past few weeks, our teachers and staff have been working hard to make Remote Learning at Bradley possible.

Based on some other schools and districts around the state, here are some things to we can expect:

As we launch the remote learning, we will all be in a new learning curve, so please have patience with this process;

At times, video conferencing can be slow or go offline, websites have been slower and technology can simply fail for periods of time.

In response to some of these obstacles, here is what we are committed to:

  • Bradley will continue to work to provide our students and families with online videos and recordings along with live sessions.
  • Teachers and students will get more proficient with the aspects of Remote Learning.
  • We will go at a slower than normal “in-school” pace to adjust to the new Remote Learning environment.
  • We continually strive to be equitable for all of our students.
  • We intend to continue teaching and learning where we “left off” in March.

Please know that a very important part of Remote Learning is for our students to continue to feel connected to their school, classrooms and teachers.

Please visit the Bradley website at https://bradley.dpsk12.org/ to access the Bradley Remote Learning website to “see” and “practice” what will go completely live Tuesday morning. https://sites.google.com/dpsk12.net/bradley-remote-learningLessons and links will be posted to the Bradley Remote Learning website between 8:45 and 9:00 each morning (starting Tuesday, April 7th).

Tutorials will be posted on the Remote Learning home page tonight to help families access the website, as well as the various online learning platforms that teachers will be using.

Finally, we know that this new Remote Learning is anything but typical for our students and families.  Please know that together, We are Bradley and we are dedicated to your children and their education.

We miss our students dearly and look forward to connecting with all of you on Tuesday, April 7th for the first day of Remote Learning!

If you need technical support during remote learning, or help with accessing online tools, you can call the Department of Technology Services Service Desk at 720-423-3163.

Thank you,
Mr. Wera
