Announcements:   
  • CVCC will hold an informational meeting for students and parents on  February 16, 2015 on the dual enrolled CTE programs offered on the Lynchburg CVCC campus for the 2015-2016 academic year.  These programs include Machine Tool; Welding; Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning; Pre-Nursing and Emergency Medical Technician-Basic. The meeting will start at 6:30 pm and will be held in Rooms 5122-5125 (Multi-Purpose Room) in Merritt Hall. 
  • On Wednesday, January 21st, a lockdown was initiated in conjunction with local law enforcement and staff from Bedford County Public Schools. The campus was locked down for approximately 20 minutes while the Safety and Security Manager for Bedford County Public Schools and deputies conducted the drill. During this time students were under the supervision of a teacher or other staff members. Students were never in danger nor were any students removed from campus for any reason.  This was a routine activity held in cooperation with the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office. We appreciate the cooperation we received from our staff and students today. 
  • NHS will be visiting homerooms and lunches to collect donations to support the Bedford Domestic Violence Services. Members will be giving out small tokens such as pens, pencils, stickers, bracelets, and key rings to those who donate. We are trying to raise $300.00.  Additionally, the BDV would appreciate any of the following donations: old cell phones, women's clothing and tennis shoes, and/or children's clothing and tennis shoes.  You can bring your clothing and shoe donations to my room, and I'll be sure they get to the BDV.  Thanks so much for helping make this a successful endeavor for NHS. 
  • soapCold and Flu season is in full swing! Through the week of January 26th through January 30th Liberty High School will be holding a soap and hand sanitizer drive to donate to the VA Medical Center.  Each homeroom is asked to bring one item per student or more!  Students may also donate money towards the purchase of these items which will count towards their classes total for each dollar donated. The homeroom with the highest amount collected on January 30th will win a Krispy Kreme Breakfast the following week of school! Items will be collected on Friday to total. For questions please see Mrs. McCoy in room 314.

  • 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.
