School doors are kept locked at all times. Please use the buzzer to request access. Report directly to the office to sign in and obtain a badge. Bradford uses the SchoolMessenger communication system to notify parents about safety-related issues and other types of information via email, text and sometimes phone. 

Emergency Drills

Bradford conducts emergency drills and other security measures each year with students. 

  • Fire drills are conducted each month of the school year.
  • Emergency drills using the Standard Response Protocol are conducted a minimum of two times each school year.


The Safe2Tell program is designed to help students anonymously report any threatening behavior that endangers them, their friends, family or the community. Students are encouraged to report concerns about potentially unsafe situations. 

  • Call 877-542-7233 to get help.

Watch D.O.G.S.

Watch D.O.G.S.Ⓡ is a program for elementary and secondary schools. It invites fathers, grandfathers, uncles and other father figures to volunteer at their student’s school for one full day during the school year. The program is overseen by a “Top Dog” volunteer who partners with the school administrator to coordinate scheduling and identify opportunities for Watch D.O.G.S. to assist at the school.

Volunteers perform a variety of assistance, including:

  • Monitoring the school entrance and lunchroom
  • Unloading and loading buses and cars
  • Helping in classrooms by working with small groups of students on homework, flashcards or spelling

To volunteer or ask questions about the program, contact the committee chair listed on the Bradford K-8 Parent-Teacher website.

The Department of School Safety & Security takes pride in providing the safest environment for all students. All staff, students and school communities deserve an environment that is welcoming and without threats, bullying, intimidation and harassment.

All Jeffco high schools and many middle schools have a successful School Resource Officer (SRO) program thanks to strong partnerships with every first responder and Law Enforcement agency in Jefferson County.

Watch the "Jeffco School Safety: Five Departments Devoted to a Duty to Protect” video to learn more about Jeffco’s nationally recognized School Safety program.

Emergency Communication

The fastest way to get information in an emergency situation is to follow Jeffco on X and Facebook (@JeffcoSchoolsCO) and check Jeffco’s homepage on the website for alerts. 

The SchoolMessenger system uses what families enter into the Infinite Campus Online Registration system for contact information. Families must ensure this information is always updated.

Your Role: What Families Should Do in an Emergency 

  • Stay away. Do not go to the school. This may interfere with procedures. Only public safety personnel will be allowed in or near a school during an emergency situation. 
  • Do not call. Do not call the school or security staff. We understand you may want to communicate with your student during an emergency, but calling may prevent them from hearing important instructions.
  • Be informed. Monitor your phone, email, district social media channels, local law enforcement or fire social media channels and local news. Jeffco provides fast and accurate information to its community. In some situations, accurate information can take a long time to verify and share. Please be patient.
  • Be ready. When you are asked to pick up your student, come quickly and bring your identification to the reunification location communicated to you. Jeffco will only release students to adults listed on that student’s Infinite Campus page. Make sure anyone who could pick up your student in an emergency is listed. This can include neighbors, friends or other family members.
