The 2020 edition of the Talisman is making its way to Bedford High School. This is the biggest yearbook we've ever created, and includes a Year-In-Review along with coverage of the beginnings of our journey with Covid-19.

We do not order any extra copies but we are pleased to announce that the yearbook company is also sending us a limited number of their print overruns that may occur during the printing process. They are now available on yearbookforever.com on a first come/first served basis. (Tip: Make sure you specify the Bedford High School in Temperance, MI!)

Yearbooks will be passed out when students return their textbooks and chromebooks at the end of the year. (A schedule for this has not yet been set so stay tuned for more details on that.) We look forward to sharing the efforts of your dedicated yearbook staff with all of you. Be safe and GO MULES!

English Students Express Gratitude for Health Care Workers

It wasn't a part of the regular curriculum in Mrs. Heartz's English classes. The juniors were given an opportunity to write letters that she would share with the front line health care workers, as well as those toiling behind-the-scenes, at Toledo Hospital.

Mrs. Heartz said it "allowed students to use their writing to do something positive during this time, which I think they appreciated and understood the value of." Their notes filled 33 pages that she sent over today.

Posted: May 4, 2020


May 1st, 2020 (Updated May 11, 2020)
Dear Senior Students and Parents:

Like all of the students across the state of Michigan, you are likely feeling a great deal of loss right now, and that is perfectly understandable. You have lost many opportunities to interact with teachers, classmates, and friends, as well as numerous opportunities for sports, music, theater, and many other activities. We mourn these losses with you and are working to preserve as many traditions as possible. However, the safety of our students and community is our highest priority. Additionally, we must ensure we are in full compliance with any Executive Orders. The purpose of this letter is to update you on several events that still remain in question.

Please know that I have engaged in a variety of conversations with various stakeholders and I have extensively reviewed the survey that was given to seniors earlier this month. I am very appreciative of all of the input, thoughts, and compassion during this time. The decisions made represent a collective voice with the understanding that our current reality is far from ideal. Also, please know that I am sharing as much information with you as possible. I will continue to be honest, optimistic, hopeful, and transparent with you.


I would very much like to host a graduation ceremony for the class of 2020. To give us the best opportunity at having a large ceremony, we are postponing the June 7th graduation date for the July 28th date. Our top priority will be to have a large graduation on July 28th at 6:30pm at the University of Toledo. However, we know that this may not be able to safely happen. If Toledo is not able to happen, we will then move the ceremony to Bedford High School. It will be at either the football field or soccer field, depending on the status of the bond work. By mid June, we will know more information and be able to provide more information. If, by mid June, we are still looking at large gatherings being prohibited, we will keep our July 28th date and move forward with several smaller graduations, or a virtual graduation. If we move to a virtual graduation, which is the last resort, we will plan for a physical diploma distribution where students will get to walk across the stage and photographers will be present.

Please don’t read too far into the various scenarios for graduation. As we move into June, we will have a much clearer picture and I will provide you more information. To summarize the “Graduation” section, June 7th is postponed for July 28th. More communication on this will follow.


It is with a heavy heart that I write this to you. Prom for 2020 is cancelled. Consideration for other dates was given. However, we know that families and students plan and invest a lot of personal funds into prom and we don’t see a timeline for this to occur.


The last day for Seniors will be May 21st.

Senior Collection and Distribution has been moved to June 1st. This is to ensure compliance with the extension of the Stay Home Order.

We will have a schedule (by alphabet) for students to come to school to turn-in all books, chromebooks, chargers, and equipment. Students will also be able to go to their locker and gather any items. Additionally, we will be distributing caps and gowns, senior honors awards, and yearbooks.

While the structure will reduce the number of people present, we also want to ensure everyone takes the now standard precautions on June 1st. We ask that everyone:

-- Maintain six feet of distance
-- Wear a face covering
-- Don’t attend if you are ill or if you have had contact with someone suspected of having COVID-19.
-- Wash your hands before and after the event.
-- Cover your mouth/nose if coughing/sneezing with your elbow.

More directions regarding where to go and times for each student will be sent closer to the date.


The parents that have been diligently planning this event all year are still very committed to sending our seniors off. The event has changed to a Senior Farewell Event. Dates and details for this event will be communicated once a plan is in place. The planning group reviewed the student survey responses and is going to attempt to have a gathering once social restrictions permit. We know that seniors would love a chance to gather as a class at least one more time.

Additionally, this group is working on a senior yard sign distribution to take place in the near future.

This is not the conclusion to your high school career that you, or anyone, planned for. Let’s keep hoping for “normal” to return to our country and state. Hopefully, we will be able to come together again in some venue to celebrate the class of 2020.

Kevin Weber
Principal, Bedford High School


The Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer Program (P-EBT) provides temporary funding to address emergency food needs for families affected by the pandemic. P-EBT food assistance benefits will go to families with students ages 5-18 that are eligible for free or reduced-price school meals. This includes families currently receiving Food Assistance Program benefits as well as those not currently enrolled in the program.


Additional benefits will be issued directly to your Bridge Card and can be used in the same way to purchase food items. P-EBT benefits can also be used in the Double Up Food Bucks program.

March and April combines benefits: $193.80 per eligible student will be loaded on the family's Bridge Card by the end of April.

May and June combined benefits: $182.40 per eligible student will be loaded on the family's Bridge Card at a later date yet to be determined.


Q. We recently lost our job or took a significant loss in income. What should I do to receive the benefit?
A: Please reach out to your local school/district to learn how to complete an application for Free and Reduced Price School Meals. Your child’s school/district will have to report the change in Free and Reduced-Price Meal eligibility to the state of Michigan to make you eligible for P-EBT.

How to apply for Bedford Public Schools' Free and Reduced School Meals:

Applications for free/reduced meals for 2019-2020 are available online at: https://www.lunchapp.com/
Applications can be printed using this link: http://www.bedford.k12.mi.us/files/2019-20-Free_and_Reduced-price_application.pdf
Applications will also be available at the MRE and BHS "Drive Thru" pickups. Completed applications can also be returned at these locations as well.

Then register on MI Bridges to get the EBT process started: https://newmibridges.michigan.gov/

Eligible families not currently receiving food assistance benefits will receive a pre-loaded Electronic Benefits Transaction (EBT) card in the mail. It will be issued under the name of the oldest student in the household. Benefits for all eligible school-aged children in the home will be loaded onto this one EBT card. Families will also be getting a letter from MDHHS describing how to use their EBT card, how to set up their PIN, and other information about food assistance benefits. This EBT card can be used to purchase food items only, in-person, at any SNAP retailer. The P-EBT card may look different from the Bridge Card but can be used in the same way.

March and April combines benefits: Families will receive an EBT card in the mail pre-loaded with $193.80 per eligible student by the end of the first week in May. Please keep this card to use for ongoing benefits you may receive.

May and June combined benefits: $182.40 per eligible student will be loaded on the family's EBT card at a later date yet to be determined.

Brief review activities

Posted: April 14, 2020


Normally at the end of a school year, we put out a quick note about food service balances and what your options are, especially for families with a graduating senior. But since we are no longer holding classes in our buildings and kids are no longer eating lunches in our cafeterias, we are putting this notice out a bit earlier this year.

Do you owe money?
You can continue to use the Meal Magic Cloud's SendMoneyToSchool link: https://sendmoneytoschool.com/Dashboard/Login.aspx?ReturnUrl=/ to pay online (Note: Vendor service fee will apply to the amount paid.) or you can send a check to cover the balance owed to: Bedford Public Schools, 1623 W. Sterns Road, Temperance, MI 48182. Please include Food Service and student(s) names in the memo line of the check. If you need assistance to find out the balance owed, please email the Food Service Director, Meaghan Eckler at meaghan.eckler@mybedford.us.

Do you have a senior graduating but still have money in their account?
You have 3 options:
1) Request a refund.
2) Request a transfer of remaining balance into the account of a younger sibling.
3) Request remaining balance be transfered to a Food Service account set up to accept donations to ensure all students can enjoy healthy meals at school every day.
Please email the Food Service Director, Meaghan Eckler at meaghan.eckler@mybedford.us and let her know what option you would like.

Do you have returning student(s) next year with funds in their account but need the money now?
Generally balances are left in the student accounts to carry over until the next school year, but we realize that families may need those funds sooner rather than later. If you need a refund, please email the Food Service Director, Meaghan Eckler at meaghan.eckler@mybedford.us to request one.

All food service refund checks will be issued out of the district's administrative offices and will take longer to process than it normally would given the restrictions on building access right now. Refunds will not include any online vendor service fees paid. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

We also encourage families to apply for Free and Reduced School Meals that cover both breakfast and lunch meals on school days. It takes about 10-12 days to process the application. You can apply during the closure so benefits are available for students to use as soon as school resumes.

Applications for free/reduced meals for 2019-2020 are available online or
can be printed. Applications will also be available at the MRE and BHS "Drive Thru" pickups. Completed applications can also be returned at these locations as well.

Please call the Food Service Director, Meaghan Eckler, at 734-850-6127, with any questions.

April 3, 2020
Dear BPS Families,

As I shared with all of you yesterday in my brief email, Governor Whitmer’s signing of Michigan Executive Order 2020-35 immediately suspends face-to-face learning in all K-12 Schools for the remainder of the current school year. While this is an unprecedented event for our state, I believe that for the safety of our students and staff, it was needed for our district to be able to move forward. By signing this latest Executive Order, Governor Whitmer has also made it possible for Michigan Public Schools to transition from our traditional mode of in-classroom learning to a newly allowable and flexible “Learn at Home” instructional model. Bedford Public Schools will now have the opportunity to create and submit a continuity of education plan that will allow the district to continue providing educational services to our families for the remainder of the year. This plan, which must be approved by Monroe Intermediate School District (MISD) and the Michigan Department of Education (MDE), will outline our plan for at-home learning, continued food service programs, and the continuation of any additional services that we currently hope to offer. Once approved, BPS will be able to once again provide educational instruction for state-approved credit for all grade levels.

The submitted BPS Continuity of Education Plan will focus on engaging ALL students in their personalized learning and academic growth, providing families with consistent support and guidance, and offering flexibility for staff and students to overcome the inherent challenges of at-home learning. Student participation in the learn-at-home instructional program is mandatory for all students and failure to engage in the learning process can/will lead to a loss of academic credit toward graduation or grade-level progression. Myself, and the district leadership team fully understand that there will be an exorbitant amount of potential obstacles in seamlessly implementing any new plan. This means that timely communication to teaching staff and building administration will be key in helping our team to better understand your needs and challenges. BPS has been successfully engaged in utilizing state-of-the-art educational technology and digital learning resources for a number of years. Each grade-level will look different in our plan but there will be consistency and support to assist students and families along the way. The district began creating a version of our plan in the early stages of the current closure in case our state elected to move in this direction. We feel that based on initial feedback, our plan will be ready for initial submission based on the finalized Executive Order by the middle of next week. Once approved, our district goal would then be to begin plan implementation the following week (tentatively around April 16th). We will, of course, keep everyone up-to-date on our progress as we navigate through this approval process.

Finally, we are continuously working to keep our families informed throughout this process and have created a new FAQs based on the questions from last evening's District Zoom Update and Discussion as well as emails and other sources. If you do not see a topic that you are searching for answers on, please email building administration, department/program directors, or myself. As always, I am asking our families to rely on official district information channels to get accurate and timely answers to your questions.

Thank you and I wish all of you a safe and hopefully relaxing weekend.

group photo of BX with robot and 2 blue bannersIn addition to winning the event, Bedford Express was honored to receive the Chairman's Award. "The Chairman’s Award is the most prestigious award in FIRST® Robotics Competition. The award recognizes a team that reflects sustained excellence and impact within the FIRST community, in its own community, and beyond. They serve as role models and resources for other teams while educating the public in support of the FIRST mission. " The team was recognized for all of the community service projects they participate in, mentoring teams in and out of our school district, helping teams at competition, sharing our space with other teams that do not have a space to practice and spreading the word of FIRST.

"The coaches and the kids need to thank all of the parents for getting your students where they need to be and for working around the long practice schedule. We also cannot thank the 20+ adult mentors enough for the time that you donate to this program. The team cannot achieve any of these things without your continued support," said Head Coach Denny Costlow.

CamrynCongratulations to BHS student Camryn R., who has been selected as a Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Honored Hero, a leadership role in which she works to inspire others and raise funds for blood cancers. Team Mission Tackle Cancer is holding a fundraiser in conjunction with BHS to put together a special gift to honor and support Camryn while raising funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

When Cameron was 10 years old, she was diagnosed with ALL, or Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. She then underwent 2.5 years of treatment, consisting of chemotherapy, blood and platelet transfusions, which included prolonged inpatient stays. Camryn loves painting and playing basketball and is a sophomore. In remission now, she credits her dog with helping her through the tough parts of cancer treatment. Always with a positive outlook, Camryn says, “There will be tougher parts than normal when you have cancer, but if you have someone or something to distract you, it isn’t as bad.”

Students and staff, thank you for contributing to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for the fundraiser honoring our ALL hero, Camryn. Thanks to the leadership class for leading this fundraiser. Together, we raised $650 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Sylvia and Coach VogelSTATE CHAMP!

Congratulations to State Champion Sylvia P.! She is the first female Bedford wrestler to capture the Girls State Wrestling title. Last year as a sophomore, she took 5th place. This year she is a champion and next year she plans to "work even harder!'

She grew up watching her brother practice, started wrestling at age 5 and never looked back! She gets her inspiration from her mom, family, and world champion US female wrestler, Adeline Gray.

She is thankful for her coaches for pushing her to be the best and says she is proud of where I come from and the support she gets from Bedford.

Coach Vogel is impressed with her work ethic, "With the long history of Bedford Wrestling, it is pretty hard to set new records. Sylvia is doing just that. She is blazing new trails in one of high school's fastest growing sports. (Women's wrestling) Sylvia is one of the hardest workers on my team. She set a goal for herself and did the work to achieve it. I am so proud of her."

Her advice to any young ladies that want to follow in her footsteps on the mat? Never dwell on your losses. Every one is scared to lose. Her trick to get past that anxiety? She uses meditation to relax and get past that mental part of wrestling.

She hopes to compete in a national event in a couple of months and we have no doubt that she will do Bedford proud! Good Luck, Sylvia!

Bedford High School All-Girl Robotics Team Reaches Finals in All-Girl Competition

group photo of ladies' robotics team

Bedford High School's Bedford Express FRC Robotics Team sent a squad of ladies to the Goonettes Invitational, an all-girl FIRST Robotics Competition held in Woodhaven on Saturday, September 14th. Captains Layni R. and Alexis F. successfully drove through the qualifications matches with a 7-0-1 record, earning a second place ranking. Freshman Savannah F., Jessica S. and Sarah B. did an incredible job maintaining the robot in our pit in addition to filling roles of human player and technician. The team advanced through the quarter-finals and semi-finals before falling to the top ranked alliance in the finals. This is the first time Bedford Express has attended an all-girls event since 2015 and we are hopeful that a strong class with seven freshman girls will allow us to continue to compete in the future.

Bedford Express is preparing now for fall/winter classes and the start of build season in January. Students interested in joining the co-ed 2020 team (and mentors interested in helping) can register on the Bedford Express website.

More information about the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) can be found on the FIRST FRC website.

Free & Reduced Meal Applications for 2019-20 School Year

Applications for free/reduced meals for 2019-2020 are available online, on the Food Service webpage, in all the school offices, or can be printed here.

This form must be filled our annually as benefits will expire on October 11, 2019 if a new application is not submitted. Families can also apply for Free and Reduced School Meals at any time during the school year.

Participation is confidential and anonymous to use. 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.

Food Service Donations Accepted

In the past, Bedford Public Schools has been fortunate to have received donations to help pay off students' negative food service balances. Accounts have been set up at each school to receive donations from anyone else interested in ensuring that all of our students can enjoy a healthy meal every day at school. Stop by the school office if you wish to make a similar donation.
