    Dear Liberty Families,

    As the 2019-2020 school year comes to a close, we wanted to communicate our plan for extension and remediation opportunities.   If your child has not completed the work needed to either pass a currently enrolled course or to improve their current grade as of May 29, 2020, BCPS will have an extended learning opportunities summer session from Tuesday, July 7, 2020 through Friday, July 24, 2020.  Applicable students will receive more details on how to take advantage of the extended learning opportunities in the near future.  If Chromebooks were collected and are needed for the extended learning opportunities in July, they will be redistributed as needed.  

    If you have any questions concerning these extended learning opportunities, please call Liberty High School at 540-586-2541 Monday- Friday between the hours of 8:00 am and 3:00 pm.  

    Sincerely,

    Shawn Trosper

    Dear Liberty Seniors and Families,


    Our virtual recognition and diploma pickups are coming soon!  Please see below for details.


    • The Class of 2020 virtual recognition will take place on Saturday, May 30, 2020. At 7:00 pm, a link will be posted on the BCPS Facebook page, the BCPS webpage, and the Liberty High School webpage. The link will also be sent to all senior families embedded in an email.

    • Diploma distribution will take place on Monday, June 1, 2020, from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm.  All seniors are invited to Liberty High School to pick up their diplomas during these times.  Please remember that this is not a drive-through graduation ceremony, but rather an opportunity for graduates to pick up their diplomas.  

    • When you arrive to pick up your diploma, please remain in your vehicle. A staff member will hand you an envelope containing your diploma.  Graduates will receive their diploma cover at the in-person ceremony.  Based on the phasing plan established by the Governor, our division is hopeful to secure a date, time, and venue in mid to late summer.  


    I look forward to seeing everyone then. Have a great weekend!


    Sincerely, 


    Shawn Trosper

    Principal

4.3.2020 - Parent Letter regarding Special Education Students

3.23.2020 - Earlier today 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

Bedford County Public Schools is working to carefully monitor the health status of our school and community in relation to COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Our school division maintains regular communication with the regional offices of the Virginia Department of Health, which serves as the conduit of information for the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Our School Nursing Team has received frequent updates for monitoring potential symptoms and risk for COVID-19 through school clinics. 

Our School Nurse Team continues to provide appropriate preventative health instruction for students and families in regard to any communicable conditions, especially those of a respiratory or viral nature. 

  • Stay home when you are sick. If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes. Use a tissue to cover coughs and sneezes, then dispose of the tissue. When a tissue is not available, cough or sneeze into your elbow.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces or objects. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially in areas where someone is known to be ill. 
  • Wash hands for 20 seconds. Washing hands often under clean, running water can help prevent the spread of germs. If you cannot wash your hands, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60-95% alcohol.

The National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) has developed a parent resource on how to talk about this important health topic with your child. The CDC provides daily updates and health-related guidance in regards to COVID-19 if further information is needed for your family.
