Cough Drop Parent Letter

January 3, 2018

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Effective Monday, January 8, 2018, it will be necessary to complete a "Medication Administration Form" (including physician's signature) in order to dispense cough drops or lozenges to students during the school day.

In accordance with the Michigan Department of Education, all over the counter medications, as well as prescription medications must have a physician's signature in order to be given to students at school. Due to the fact that there is a "Drug Label" on the packaging of most cough drops, they are considered an over the counter medication. The risk of choking from a cough drop is greater than the benefit they provide.

Please remember that if you wish to have cough drops or lozenges dispensed to your child while at school, they must be brought into the Health Room by a parent, along with the completed "Medication Administration Form", which is available on the BPS website under the Health & Safety Department. Please DO NOT allow your student to carry cough drops or keep them in their possession during the school day.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

Sincerely,
Karen Weis and Mindy Klawonn
District Nurses, Bedford Public Schools
734-850-6034

WHERE'S THE BUS?

Fleet viewer screen shot and phone display

Fleet Viewer Now Available for All BPS Buses!

Bedford's Transportation Department has installed Samsara GPS units on each of the buses in the fleet. Use the Fleet Viewer to watch as the bus nears the stop! No more standing in the rain or cold waiting for the bus to get there! Families can stay warm and dry while tracking the real-time location of their bus. They will know that once the bus passes a certain street, or enters their neighborhood, that it is time to head out to the stop so they are ready when it arrives!

HOW TO ACCESS:
1. Go to the Samsara Fleet Viewer Link--Use the link on the left.
2. You will see a map displayed. In the upper left hand corner is says, "Search 48 vehicles." Click your cursor there to enter the route number of your bus. For example: "rt 23." You can also use the name of the route the elementary kids use, for example, "Star" if you child rides the Star Bus. A dark gray circle means it is parked. A green arrow means it is travelling and will be moving along the road in the direction of travel. In both scenarios, the bus is identified by the route information associated with it.
3. Save site as a bookmark on your phone for even more convenience!


NOW ACCEPTING ONLINE PAYMENTS

MySchoolBucks

Online payments are now being accepted for the 2017-18 school year. Chromebook insurance ($30) payments for Bedford students in grades 4-12, including all of the associated technology permissions, can be done completely online through My School Bucks Link. Insurance payments for families with 3 or more students are capped at $90.

Optional messenger style bags are also available for purchase ($25) for those students that don't want to carry their Chromebook in their book bag.

Please note: You must use the MySchoolBucks WEBSITE to conduct your transactions for Chromebooks and other items we are currently accepting payment for (for example, high school parking passes and Latchkey payments). The MySchoolBucks mobile app you might see on your phone ONLY contains the company's meal program which Bedford Public Schools does not use (we use MyMealtime at www.mymealtime.com for deposits into food service accounts).
Athletic Forms & Payment

FinalForms will be used to complete all of the required online
athletic forms and as the online payment system for all levels of
Bedford Public Schools athletics. Please use the Final Forms link on the left. A step-by-step Parent Playbook on how to use FinalForms is available to download.


ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR ONLINE FOR FREE & REDUCED SCHOOL MEALS

Free and Reduced meal applications can now be completed online! You can go directly to My Mealtime (use the link on the left) to set up an account (if you don't already have one). Paper applications are also available in all school offices.

Create an Online Application for Free & Reduced Meals: Click the "Free & Reduced Applications" button at My Mealtime and follow the wizard to create your application. You will need your Student's First Name and Bedford School ID number. You will receive notification regarding the determination of the application within 10 business days. Last year's participants will continue to receive program benefits until Oct. 13th. There is no deadline for application. Families can apply at any point during the school year. All information provided is confidential. Further instructions can be found on the Food Service department page using the link on the left.

Please call the Food Service Director, Meaghan Eckler, at 734-850-6127 or Food Service Secretary, Tammy Newton, at 734-850-6126 if you have any questions about this process.

We encourage you to complete an application, even if you choose not to use the benefits yourself, since the number of students eligible for benefits also is used to determine other services and funding, such as the funding our schools receive through Title programs.
