Welcome to Liberty High School

Home of the Minuteman!  Liberty High School is part of Bedford County Public Schools serving the town of Bedford and surrounding areas.  Find useful links for teacher webpages under Our Staff or look for important forms and links under Parents and Students.  Learn more about what is happening at Liberty via the Calendar or Our School link.  Below you can find important announcements and Minutemen Good News!

Announcements:    
  • We want to offer a big congratulations to Dr. Kathy Dills, the new lead principal at Liberty High School, as well as to Mr. Tim Overstreet who is now the Director of Instruction for Bedford County Public Schools! 
  • 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.  
  • We are excited to announce that, for the first time, all three high school graduations will be broadcast live on the internet. This is being made possible through a recently-formed partnership with Liberty University, which is donating its network to make the streaming possible.  We want as many people as possible to watch our talented students reach such an important milestone in their lives.  A page has been created on the BCPS web site www.bedford.k12.va.us where the ceremonies can be watched. You can either click on a banner near the top of the home page to access the site, or you may go directly there by clicking the following link: http://bedford.sharpschool.net/cms/One.aspx?portalId=1057261&pageId=19384662
  • Behind the wheel Driver Education groups are full for the summer. See Mrs. Turpin in the fall for information about 2014-15 groups. Have a great summer! Be safe!
  • Click here to be enrolled in the Bedford County Emergency Notification System.   
  • 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 below.

  • To celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday and Read Across America Month, students and staff at Liberty High School collected new and gently used books to donate to an organization that helps with domestic abuse victims in Lynchburg. Over 400 books were collected including picture books, chapter books for children, classics, and contemporary novels for adults. The contribution was intended to help spread the love of reading and support families already living without many things. Shelters routinely provide food, shelter, and counseling, but even the simple entertainment of reading is a luxury for those living in a shelter.  A contest was held to see which homeroom could donate the most books over the course of the month. Students were also encouraged to vote, with their spare change, for which administrator they wanted to see dress up like Cat in the Hat. The winning homerooms who collected the most books received a breakfast of donuts delivered by principal, Tim Overstreet, proudly sporting the tall, striped hat. Money collected from that contest was donated to Liberty High School PTSA to support further activities at the school.

  • EOMLiberty High School is proud to announce Mr. Seth Williams as the May Employee of the Month. Mr. Williams teaches College English and English 12 at LHS and has just finished his tenth year of teaching.  Mr. Williams was an integral part of making sure that graduation ran smoothly.  As class sponsor and senior English teacher, Mr. Williams is very involved with the senior class and has a great rapport with his students.  His laid-back demeanor and jovial attitude are appreciated by the students and staff.  When Mr. Williams is not at school he enjoys fishing, sitting on the porch with his wife and making saw dust in the shop.  LHS would like to thank the local sponsors that generously provided congratulatory gifts to celebrate Mr. Williams’ recognition:  Applebee’s, Frederick’s Flowers, Ivy Bridge Café, Liberty Station, Shirt Shack, and Subway.  Community Support is always welcome and appreciated at Liberty High School.
