BIOLOGY POND AREA CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Please be advised that we are asking that all students and community members avoid the pond that is located on the SHS/JHS campus. This pond, often referred to as the Biology Pond, is used by both our Junior/Senior High School Classes for academic study. Earlier today, a teacher reported to administration that there appeared to be an alligator type reptile swimming in the pond. Building administration, along with our school liaison officer, have contacted the proper agencies and experts to assist with its removal. Local animal experts have identified our new visitor as a caiman that appears to be approximately three feet in length. Caiman's while not indigenous to Michigan are often kept as pets throughout the nation. Caiman's share many similar characteristics to alligators and crocodiles but are often smaller in size. We are asking that all students and families remain clear of this area until the caiman can be safely relocated to a proper home over the next couple of days. Please speak with your students to relay this message as soon as possible.

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.
