  • 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.
