Bracher Elementary School Home




  • If your child is staying home from school, please telephone the school at 423-1200 IN THE MORNING ON THE DAY OF THE ABSENCE. For your convenience, there is a 24-hour voicemail on which messages can be left. Any absences that are not reported by a parent or guardian will be recorded as an unexcused absence in the student’s permanent record.




Monday, Oct 31 at 10:30 am.

Students who wish to participate may wear costumes to school. Please plan for a safe non-threatening costume. Costumes depicting gore, violence, or weapons are not permitted. Absolutely no clown costumes allowed!

Students should bring regular clothes so they can change after the parade and be comfortable at school for the rest of the day.


The Bracher Bop is back!

Important Safety Message: Clown-related Social Media Threats

Santa Clara Unified is monitoring local and national social media activity and news reports warning that clowns will show up at schools and do harm. While we are not aware of any credible threats directed at our schools, students, or staff, we have notified law enforcement so that authorities and our school resource officers can also be on alert for any suspicious activity. 

We recognize that many families are on high alert and that it is frightening to receive messages from your children regarding any potential safety matters. The District and your schools will always alert and inform you of potential threats as quickly as possible, and please don't hesitate to call your school when you have questions or need to verify information you've heard third-hand. 

We will take seriously any such activity and will work with law enforcement to respond swiftly to any threats directed at the safety of our school communities. 

If you witness suspicious activity in or around a school, please call your school or the District Office (408) 423-2000 or, for a more immediate threat, call 911 or your local police department non-emergency number:

·  Santa Clara Police Department at (408) 615-5580

·  Sunnyvale Police Department at (408) 730-7100

·  San Jose Police Department at (408) 277-8900

·  Cupertino Police Department at (408) 299-2311

Thank you for your continued partnership to ensure the safety of our students and schools.
