Schedules for ALL Students Now Available on HAC

Schedules for Bedford Junior High Students are now available on HAC. 

You may notice that the schedule no longer lists Lunch or Homeroom. We have changed our bell schedules (both at the high school and junior high) for this school year to more closely align with the Michigan Department of Education's rules that say only 15 minutes of homeroom time can count towards instructional time. This change also gives us one extra day's worth of time we can count to offset excessive snow days! We didn't want to extend the school day or add additional days to the school calendar to fulfill our requirements. Our solution was to combined the homeroom time with a class period.

So 4th hour is twice as long as it used to be. And it will be broken down into 4A, 4B, 4C, and 4D sections. (This replaces the old 4A/B and 5A/B sections) The entire 4th hour will be spent with the teacher you are assigned to for that hour with the exception of the chunk of time that teacher's class has been assigned for lunch. BJHS students with a teacher with 4A lunch:, students will still report to that classroom and be dismissed from there to go to lunch. BHS students with 4A lunch will go directly to the cafeteria. The remaining time will be devoted to some homeroom time and classroom instruction in that 4th hour subject.

How do the BJHS students find out whether they have 4A, B, C, or D lunch?

The following 4th hour BJHS teachers have 4A lunch time:
10:30 - 10:55; (Students should go to class first and then be dismissed by their teacher for lunch.)
Ewing, Dager, Allison, Hennessey, Vergiels, Robinson, Science Class Staff, Kaufman, Pridgeon.
The following 4th hour BJHS teachers have 4B lunch time:
11:00 - 11:25; Benisatto, Currie, Wood, Kay, Carnicom, Dukate, Tillman, Mahoney, Stalker, Steffen, Tilly
The following 4th hour BJHS teachers have 4C lunch time:
11:30 - 11:55; Burgermeister, Farnell, Brown, Davis, Melnyk, Vogel, Scheffer, Tully, Sullivan, Quinlan
The following 4th hour BJHS teachers have 4D lunch time:
12:00 - 12:25; Meggit, Jakubowski, Salenbien, Lambrix, Lopinski, Manore, Masters, Sansom, Spurlin, Sanecki

 

High School students can find out on the High School home page. Click on the Lunch Schedule link. Your lunch period will be A, B, C, or D based on your 4th hour teacher. BHS students with the "A" lunch period should go straight to lunch after 3rd hour.
