Omar Bradley Elementary school opened its doors in 1981. The
school was named after General Omar N. Bradley because of the large
military population in northeast El Paso. Of course we would be called
the Generals. It serves approximately 400 - 430 students each year in
grades Pre-K through 5th.
We have the Connections program which serves gifted and
talented students in grades four and five. The students spend two and a
half hours with a certified gifted and talented teacher for reading,
language arts, and social studies.
We also have a Pre-Kinder and a Kinder Collaborative. These
classes combine both special education and general education students
together with two teachers in the classroom.
Orchestra classes are offered to 5th grade students and we
have a part-time music teacher to provide music classes to students in
grades K - 5. Students also have 45 minutes of P.E. daily.
Many of our faculty have attended the "No Excuses University"
training which focuses on providing a learning environment in which all
students are prepared to go on to middle school, high school, and
college. We use the Character Counts program as the basis for behavior
and character development with our students.
- School should be a safe place for everyone; physically, emotionally, and academically.
- Learning is an on-going process and is achieved in different ways.
- Parents and teachers are partners in the educational process.
- Students need critical thinking skills and technology skills to function in the 21st century.
- All students can achieve academically.
- No one has the right to "bully" anyone else.
- Our children are our future.
- All students deserve to be educated in a way that prepares them for college.
- We are innovative and explore new ways to get results for our students.
- Character Counts!
We, the teachers, staff, parents, and students of Bradley Elementary
School, as a community of learners, will work together to reach our full
potential and become well-rounded, healthy citizens able to take our
rightful place in our ever-changing world.

Breakfast is available to all students from 7:30 until 8:00 AM. If a

We encourage all students to attend school every day, however when
your child is absent from school, please call the office (849-2840) by
9:00 AM on the day of the absence.
It is the responsibility of the student or parent to ask for make-up
work following an absence. Requests for assignments should be made on
the day the student returns to school. The number of days the child was
absent is the number of days he/she has to make up the work.
When a student's absence for personal illness exceeds three days, the
student must present a statement from a physician, health clinic, or
hospital verifying the illness or other condition requiring the
student's extended absence from school.
An unexcused absence is one which may or may not be approved by the
parent, and which cannot be classified as excused or requested.
Unexcused absences will include, but are not limited to, the following:
- testing or instruction by outside agencies
- activities of non-school clubs, athletic events, and organizations
- babysitting not related to a family emergency
- family vacations
Excessive tardiness will be handled as a discipline issue by the
principal. Students must be in the classroom before 8:15 or they will be
considered tardy. After three tardies, students will be given after
school detention. Continued excessive tardies will result in the student
being counted absent, rather than tardy, at 8:15.
Bradley Elementary has a plan in place to address bullying types of
behaviors. It includes counseling students on how to stop someone from
bullying them, consequences for students who engage in bullying
behaviors, and methods for reporting bullying. If your child is
subjected to bullying behaviors from one or more students, please
contact the school administration right away. Encourage your child to
tell an adult if he/she is being bullied. If your child is the one
engaging in bullying behavior, please support us as we work with him/her
to change the behavior.
It is best not to bring cell phones to school. However, if a child
brings one, it must be turned off at all times. If a student's cell
phone rings or if he/she is caught speaking on the phone or texting, the
phone will be taken away and parents will pay $15 to get it back.
Change of Address/Phone Number
Please make sure to notify us if you have a change of address or phone number. It is imperative that we be able to contact you.
Code of Conduct
The El Paso Independent School District has a Code of Conduct that
must be followed by all students. In addition, our behavior management
plans are based on the principles of "Character Counts." Students are
taught the meaning of being trustworthy, responsible, respectful, fair,
caring, and a good citizen. They are expected to follow these tenets
and be children of good character.
CALM Anger Management
Getting along with others and personal anger management are skills
necessary to succeed in life. The CALM approach is a four-part process
designed to help students practice effective ways of handling anger,
communicating, and cooperating with peers.
- C: Cool down and count to ten.
- A: Accept responsibility for your feelings and actions.
- L: Listen to the other side. Talk it over.
- M: Make friends, or move on to something else.
In order to ensure the safety of our students, all visitors,
including parents, must sign in at the front office before entering any
other part of the school. After signing in, leave your I.D. with the
clerk and pick it up when you are ready to leave. In the mornings,
students can be dropped off at the front of the school or taken to the
cafeteria. Parents and students may not be in the hallways before,
during, or after school. If you wish to visit a classroom to observe,
you must get permission from the teacher AND the principal. Parents may
volunteer to assist in the cafeteria, the playground, and classrooms,
but must fill out a volunteer application first. In order to stay and
eat breakfast or lunch with your child, you must have a volunteer
application on file.
Please be careful in the parking lot and follow all rules as they are
stated in our handbook. There are many cars at the end of the day. Do
not be in a hurry--be cautious so that no one gets hurt.
