Seniors, Class of 2018

Announcements:
  • Students and parents of the Class of 2018 should have received information from Prestige Portraits (Lifetouch) about senior class portraits for the 2017-2018 yearbook.  Senior pictures will be taken on August 7 and August 8 at LHS and all rising seniors should have received an appointment time to have their picture made.  There is a sitting fee that is due at the time of the sitting  if your senior is taking both informal and formal pictures.  There is no sitting fee if your senior is taking formal pictures only for the yearbook.  This information was included in the mailing.  If the time of the scheduled appointment is not convenient or if you did not receive this information, please plan to come at a time that is convenient for you and your student during these two days and we will work you in.  If you are unable to have portraits made on either of these days, we will have make up dates on September 11 and 12.

  • Students 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. 

  • Affordable Colleges Foundation, an organization dedicated to providing free higher education tools for current and future college students and their families, recently published research on all the Not-For-Profit universities and colleges in Virginia that offer online college programs. Historically, online programs have only been offered by for-profit institutions. Today, many of the most established not-for-profit state colleges and national universities have launched programs that provide flexibility and lower tuition prices for students. This dataset is unique to our site and is even ahead of the curve compared to other government education data sources such as NCES and IPEDS. A few of the key features on the page:
    - Unique list of accredited not-for-profit institutions offering online programs, sorted by affordability
    - Spotlight interviews provided by many college deans with the institution's philosophy on online learning
    - Direct links to the specific online departments, or e-campus, of each institution

  • The Bedford County School Board approved a revision to regulation IK-R at its December 2013 meeting. The high school graduation recognition section was altered based on the timeline for determining honors based on our current and future calendars:
    • Graduation Recognition:The graduation distinction of honors or high honors status is determined by numerically calculating cumulative grade point averages of students classified as seniors. Students are recognized as achieving high honors status when their grade point average is 4.0 or above. Students are recognized as achieving honors status when their grade point average is 3.75-3.99. Grade point averages will be figured at the end of the first semester for this purpose. Final transcripts will reflect the ending grades and class rank of all students.
