Back to School Information

August 2019

Dear Bradley Family:

We hope that this letter finds you and your family rested and refreshed after summer vacation. The beginning of the 2019-2020 school year is rapidly approaching, and the excitement about another year at Bradley High School continues to mount.
One responsibility that we will take very seriously at Bradley High School is our obligation to maintain ongoing and open communication with our parents and our community. It is our hope that this letter will serve as the first of many opportunities for you to stay informed about your student’s experience at Bradley. Stay tuned as the year progresses for additional communication vehicles that will help us make sure that our students, parents, and community members receive vital information quickly and reliably.
The excitement surrounding the coming school year is already evident, as the campus is filled with the sounds of supplies being delivered, athletes preparing for competition, band members practicing, and teachers preparing their rooms for students.
It is my sincere hope that you share in that excitement and will join us at any of the year’s upcoming kick-off activities.
We are excited to welcome the Class of 2023 to Bradley High School, your new home away from home. The faculty and staff at Bradley remind you that this is your school, and hope that you will take advantage of the opportunity to shape your own unique, rewarding and fulfilling high school experience.
