    • Due to the school closure, there will be no onsite work unless schools are open to the public at a later date.  Therefore students must have reliable access to the internet. Summer session teachers have been advised of this and will be working online regularly to check in with students.  The summer school course information is linked here.

  • Beginning Tuesday, March 24, you can meet a bus or other vehicle making lunch and breakfast deliveries to elementary bus stops in your area. Please be 10 minutes early to the stop. Route schedules with estimated times are posted on the BCPS webpage at bedford.sharpschool.net under Division News.  Meals are for children age 18 and younger, and remember that a child must be present to receive a meal.  Distribution sites and schedules may be modified in the future based on participation and other factors.
  • Governor Northam extended the school closure in all Virginia schools through the end of the 2019-20 school year in response to the COVID-19 global pandemic. I realize how upsetting this news is to our learners, their families, and our entire community, as we all attempt to process exactly what this may mean for public education and life in general in Bedford County for the foreseeable future. In the days ahead we expect to receive guidance from our state department of education about how this closure will impact us during the next several months, and we will make sure to share that information with you as it becomes available.  This state guidance should include how we should interpret the academic standing of our current students, especially for those who are expecting to graduate in May 2020. Please continue to look for updates on our BCPS website as we share new information and follow all health and safety guidelines published by government officials. - Dr. Schuch, BCPS Superintendent

Prevent Chronic Absences 

  • All students who request to leave the classroom should have a pass. They can have either a student agenda or a colored bathroom pass located in each classroom.  Teachers are encouraged to keep students in their class so valuable instructional time is not lost.  They are expected to use professional judgment in determining if the student’s request to leave is valid or if they can wait.  Students who wish to see an administrator or counselor in a non-emergency situation should complete the Counselor Request Form or the Administrator Request Form (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScNeJAANrG51eElEVYVNctq9K0HuMSd10eB2ux8xZS5UPDDLg/viewform?usp=sf_link).  They can drop it off in the main office or ask their teacher to give to the proper individual.
