Bradley Strike Update

Posted 02/08/2019

Good Evening Bradley Families,

As you may have heard, the Governor announced this week that the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment will not intervene at this time in the contract negotiations with the Denver Classroom Teachers Association (DCTA) and Denver Public Schools. The hope is that a resolution can be reached prior to Monday. If that is not the case, our teachers will go on strike starting in the morning on Monday, February 11th. We have worked very hard over the past couple weeks to put together plans based on how many students arrive and how many adults we will have in the building to work with our kids. The fact is that things are uncertain at this time for us as administrators in regards to attendance of students and staff during the strike. What is certain is that if you choose to send your student to school during the strike, your student will be cared for, fed, educated, and safe.

We will do our best to provide a quality educational environment throughout the duration of the strike. Our hope is to run the school day as we would any other day to ensure consistency for our students. This means that each grade-level schedule should remain relatively the same including lunch and specials times. The school day will not change and school hours will continue to be from 9:00 am – 3:45 pm. Breakfast will continue to be served from 8:30 am – 9:00 am everyday as well.

Please note, if the teachers strike, there will be NO after-school enrichments or tutoring.
*** Discovery Link will operate as normal.

I truly appreciate your continued commitment to Denver Public Schools and specifically to Bradley International. These are truly difficult times and we will continue to do our best to have the strike have as minimal impact on your child’s well-being as possible. Thank you for your patience and flexibility. I will be sure to communicate any changes or updates to our plan as needed.

Sincerely,

Mr. Wera
