Birthday Celebrations

We love to celebrate our Texans' birthdays!

Students will be recognized each morning on announcements. Classroom teachers will recognize students in class. If you would like to recognize your child above and beyond morning announcements and the teacher celebration, please see Shelly Sartin in the front office about having your child's name on the front marquee on the day of his or her birthday or half birthday. Thank you for not bringing outside goodies or treats to school for birthday celebrations.



Bransford Traffic Congestion PlanColleyville Police Department and Colleyville Justice Center 
5201 Riverwalk Drive
Colleyville, Texas 76034

This is being sent out as a reminder that the Colleyville Police Department needs your continued assistance with the following traffic flow issues in the area of Bransford Elementary. The first is north bound traffic (coming from Colleyville Blvd) turning into Bransford Elementary. ALL traffic must turn into the school from the right lane. The roadway is marked for two north bound traffic lanes, turning right from the left lane is a violation of State law and violators will be cited.

The second issue is traffic backing up in this same direction all the way to Colleyville Blvd. At the intersection of Colleyville Blvd and Bransford Rd there is a center median with just one north bound lane. Once traffic backs up to this point, although it is rare, it creates total gridlock. Parents are asked to not block the roadway in this area. If you happen to find yourself last in line and notice the vehicle behind you cannot get through, you are asked to drive around the block to avoid blocking the roadway and receiving a citation.

 The third issue is for south bound Bransford traffic (coming from Glade Road) turning left into the school parking lot. This is a similar problem as mentioned above where once traffic backs up in the left turn lane to the center median through south bound traffic can no longer flow. Parents are again asked to not block the roadway in this area. If you happen to find yourself last in line and notice the vehicle behind you cannot get through, please drive around the block to avoid blocking the roadway and receiving a citation.

Parents may want to consider a few recommendations when dropping off or picking up their

  • Carpool
  • Leave a few minutes EARLIER in the morning. Traffic gets much more congested later in the morning.
