  • 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.

  • Nov EOmCongratulations to Liberty High School employee of Month for November, Leslie Bowyer. Mrs. Bowyer is a native to Bedford County. She is married to Allen Bowyer and has two children Kat and Grafton. Mrs.Bowyer has been teaching art at Liberty High School for eleven years and is dedicated teacher and mentor for many students at LHS. She takes time out of her day to coach and guide students toward graduation, even when it is not her art class holding them back. Not only does Mrs. Bowyer go over and above for individual students, she also is committed to making LHS and the Bedford county community a more beautiful place through art and community service. The murals and bulletin boards seen throughout the LHS campus are largely the work of Mrs. Bowyer and her students. They created the works display at the Bedford Welcome Center the “Salute to Veterans”. The students also designed the art work displayed at the Hebrew Coffee House.  During the month of November Mrs. Boyer has partnered with the Family and Consumer Sciences students at LHS on the Empty Bowls Project. The Empty Bowl Project has not only given her students and opportunity to work with pottery, but also gives back to the community through the Bedford Backpack Program. LHS would also recognizes Mrs. Jessica Brown for her part in the Empty Bowls Project, which ultimately generated several hundreds of dollars in donations for the Bedford Backpack Program and put the artwork and culinary work of LHS students in the hands and bellies of lots of people in the Bedford community. A special thanks for the business who donated the gifts for employee of the month, Wendy's of Western Virginia (a single combo), Frederic's Florist (lovely bouquet),McDonald's (a free meal each week for a month), Berglund of Bedford (a free oil change), Liberty Station (free lunch) and Subway in Bedford (free 6 inch sandwich).
