Dear BPS Families,

As we wrap up the second week of the school year, I wanted to communicate with our families to share how appreciative we are for your patience, excitement and overwhelming support. This year has been one of the smoothest starts to any school year that I can remember. The number of smiling faces that I see when visiting our buildings is a testament to the overall mood within the community. Each fall brings the start of many family events throughout our district. These events are one of the pillars of our tremendous sense of community and I look forward to seeing all of our families at each one.

As you have probably noticed while traveling around the community, BPS has continued to place a heavy focus on improving our physical buildings and associated facilities. The district cafeterias at each building have been redesigned with fresh new looks, including serving

equipment and tables and chairs for students. The Bedford Community Stadium Project has now concluded and we could not be happier with the amazing finished product. Finally, the district is almost finished with a major upgrade to the BHS Auditorium. These projects are possible through the continued support of community organizations and dedicated business partners. I implore you to get involved in any upcoming opportunities to help support these initiatives as we continue our incredible upgrades.

Besides the exciting events throughout the district, the next couple of months will most surely bring a change in the local weather. In the near future, I will be sending out a communication to families that describes our emergency weather options in detail. However, I do want to mention

that one of the hazards that can alter a school day is dense fog. On several occasion recently, I have noticed an increase in morning fog. In the event that there is a dense fog that blankets sections of our district, we may need to begin the school day with a 2-hour delayed start. If this

were to happen, you would receive an email and call from our district emergency alert system. I am hoping for the best but will make this call if it is deemed unsafe for our student buses, hundreds of student drivers and staff to be on the road.

Again, thank you for your support as we continue throughout another school year in the best district in the state. Go Mules!
