Schoology logoINTRODUCING SCHOOLOGY FOR 4th & 5th GRADE STUDENTS & FAMILIES

New this year for 4th and 5th grade students and their families is Schoology. A link has been added in the Quick Links section on the left.

For the students, teachers use Schoology to post their classroom materials online; provide a safe forum for students to discuss their ideas and collaborate on projects; and to assign and collect homework electronically. It helps students stay organized and it keeps the class connected.

For the parents, the Schoology Parent Account gives you access to:
-- The classes your child is enrolled in.
-- Your child's upcoming assignments/events.
-- School and class announcements.
-- Grades and attendance information.

You will need a Parent Access Code that you can get from your child's teacher to create your account. You can choose to set up notifications to come to your email and opt to receive additional notifications when a child has an overdue assignment.

FOOD SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

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.
