Announcements:    
  • This morning, September 26, 2014, our fire alarm went off before the regular day started.  An all clear was given and students returned to class and continued with their day.  Please read this letter from Dr. Dills for more information.  A copy of this letter was sent home with students today during 4th period.

  • SENIORS!  Don't miss out on important information regarding the Class of 2015.  Check out our Senior Page by following the Quick Links on the right or clicking HERE.   
  • ALL students must be registered with Infosnap. This is the registration service we began using this school year to keep electronic records for student information. Family Snapcodes [access codes] were given out at the beginning of the year. If you have misplaced your Snapcode (which is needed for online registration) please contact the school registrar. One of the great things about Infosnap is you only need to fill out information once for all of your children. Another positive benefit of Infosnap is that for future years, you will only have to update information. It is very important that you register with Infosnap as this replaces the emergency card system we previously used. We appreciation your attention to this matter!  Please follow the links provided on the homepage of BCPS:  http://bedford.sharpschool.net/ under General Notifications on the home page.  
  • Please click here to  access the Virginia Department of Education State Report Card for schools or divisions around the state.  Liberty's report card can be found here, or in the quick links to the right.
  • Important NoticeStudents and their families are encouraged to use a variety of information sources to select a college and major. The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) has created an institutional profile for each Virginia public college and university, and for each independent college or university participating in the Virginia Tuition Assistance Grant Program; click here to access that link.

  • EOMCongratulation to Liberty High School's Employee of the Month for September, Technology Education Teacher Thomas Fox. A graduate of Virginia Tech, this is Mr. Fox's 28th year of teaching. He has been an integral member of the staff at LHS for 12 years. In his first two years at Liberty High School, Mr. Fox converted an unused classroom into a drafting room, including building and painting the drafting stations, purchasing the latest equipment and supplies, and improving the overall functionality of the space. Mr. Fox has also strengthened the curriculum of the technology education department by establishing drafting, technical drawing, and engineering courses. Over the years, Mr. Fox and his students have participated and assisted in a number of projects around the school, including building and designing props for the drama department and the prom committee, building tables, desks, shelves, and craft paper dispensers for office personnel and staff members, and participating in the school’s beautification project. T Fox is the go-to person when someone needs something cut, hung, repaired, or constructed, and he is always willing to help; all you have to do is ask. This month, Mr. Fox's class spent two full weeks designing and creating the template for the Minuteman logo that is now painted on football field. He designed and, with the assistance of his students, created the mosaic "L" that is now hanging in the main office. He also spent a Sunday afternoon painting the parking spaces for A building staff. In 2013, Mr. Fox was named STEM Educator of the Year by Virginia's Region 2000 Technology Council. He has worked with local businesses to encourage prospective students, who are highly talented in various areas of technology, to fill future positions within our community to keep it growing.  As Liberty High School's Employee of the Month, Mr. Fox will receive flowers from Frederic’s of Bedford, a 6” sub from Subway, a combo meal from Wendy’s, one free meal a week for a month at McDonald’s, lunch at Liberty Station, and a free oil change from Berglund of Bedford.
