Senior Attendance During Spring Testing

The State of Michigan requires all public school districts to schedule and hold a minimum of 180 Days of Instruction each school year. The state provides each district with a total of six "emergency days" which can be used to replace days missed to extreme weather or building issues. As of today, Bedford Public Schools has used seven emergency days which has caused our 12th grade class to be short one total day toward our mandatory 180 days.

As a result, the district has filed an appeal with the State of Michigan to forgive our one missing day for 12th grade students.

If the state does not approve our appeal, we will add one additional day of instruction for the 12th grade class to be held on Wednesday, April 11, 2018.

Due to the state assessment calendar, 12th grade students are not currently scheduled to be in school on both April 10th and April 11th which is the cause for the shortage.

It is our hope to be able to inform parents and students of this decision as soon as possible for planning purposes.

Bedford High School sent the Varsity and Jr. Varsity Robotics teams to the Lincoln District FIRST Robotics Competition.

The varsity team entered the championship matches as the captains of the third seeded alliance. The JV squad did very well individually, and was picked to join the 7th seeded alliance which meant that the JV and Varsity teams ended up matched against each other in quarterfinal bracket. The Varsity squad won the first 2 matches and advanced to semi-finals, and, unfortunately, eliminating the JV squad in that quarterfinal round.

In the semifinal round, the varisty team's alliance was not able to overtake the number 2 alliance before being eliminated.

The Varsity team was present with the tournament's Gracious Professionalism Award. The JV team was presented with the Rookie Inspiration Award as well.

Both teams will compete at Forest Hills in Grand Rapids on April 5-7.

Food Service News

Bedford Public Schools has been fortunate to have a donor pay off all students' negative food service balances through January 22, 2018. Inspired by this person's generosity, accounts have been set up at each school to receive donations from anyone else interested in ensuring that our students can enjoy a healthy meal every day at school. Stop by the school office if you wish to make a similar donation.

Please be sure to check your student's account via My MealTime (use the link on the left) on a weekly basis so we can prevent further excessive charging. (Tip: Set a low balance alert in your profile!) 

Families can also apply for Free and Reduced School Meals at any time during the school year. Online applications can be completed through MyMealtime, and paper forms are available in each school office, or can be printed here. All student transactions at the cafeteria cash register appear identical regardless of whether students are paying full price, receiving reduced prices, or free meals, to protect the confidentiality of program participation. It's a win-win situation: the students benefit from the healthy food at breakfast and lunch with families keeping more of their hard earned money, and schools can benefit from federal funding and programs that become available based on family participation in the school meal program.
