LETTER FROM SUPERINTENDENT ON
ELECTRONIC DELIVERY DEVICES FOR NICOTINE...

Dear Bedford Public Schools Parents,

In recent years there has been an emerging trend in the use of various nicotine and cannabis/THC based products and electronic delivery devices among school age children. As a parent and educator, I have witnessed countless incidents that have resulted in ill students or law enforcement intervention related to these types of products. Bedford Public Schools, like every other district in the country, is affected by this epidemic and we continue to search for better ways to keep our students safe both while in school and out in the community. The first step in ensuring our students safety is to educate and inform our community on the existence and dangers of nicotine and cannabis/THC related products and devices. National and regional authorities are also working to intensify the education and prevention programs associated with electronic nicotine devices by addressing the root source. Recently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sent out warnings to producers and retailers regarding the penalties for targeting minors through advertising and retail displays. One of the true dangers with these products is the packaging and design which are made to resemble everyday objects, such as USB flash drives, credit cards, and writing pens. Device designs can make it very difficult for school leaders and parents to easily identify prohibited devices.

As a district, we have addressed the possession, use, and distribution of these types of products in our Board of Education Bylaws and Polices (5512) and our student handbook. The consequences for violating the policy can be severe and include up to, and including, expulsion from school. In accordance with State of Michigan Law, BPS follows restorative practices when determining student consequences and works to ensure that students have an opportunity to participate in county-wide assistance programs to help families better understand the dangers of recreational and additive use. We have been able to accomplish this goal, while maintaining the necessary privacy for students and their families as required by state law, and, more importantly, do the right thing to ensure assistance programs are followed.

The best way for Bedford Public Schools to combat this rising epidemic is to partner with our parents and community resource providers to ensure a well-rounded prevention model. BPS will continue to present information regarding trends and available resources. Informed parents know what to look for and can be prepared to take appropriate action if the need arises. Parents can be the eyes and ears when our students are outside of our buildings. Together, we can keep our students safe. Please, take the time to speak to your children about the dangers of electronic nicotine and cannabis/THC use. Share the available resources with them and keep an eye out for possession of the types of devices that are becoming increasingly popular. Below are some links to available resources that parents can use to become better educated on this topic: including facts on JUUL, the most popular product currently being sold in the country; and images of some examples of electronic nicotine/THC devices.

SEPTEMBER UPDATE LETTER FROM SUPERINTENDENT DR. CARL SHULTZ

Dear Bedford Public Schools Parents,

As we wrap up our fourth week of the new school year, I wanted to reach out and share some information and upcoming events. I would like to first report that the start of the school year has been a success. Our staff and students have endured some warm weather which always makes the teaching and learning environment more challenging. However, the weather has appeared to break and now we can all enjoy the comforting Michigan Fall temperatures.

Sticking with the topic of weather, I would like to remind everyone that you can review your parent contact information for your child(ren) by logging into the Home Access Center (HAC) under Quick Links on the district website. (If you cannot remember your personalized login information, or have trouble, you can
contact the HelpDesk at 734-850-6095.) Any needed revisions can be made by contacting the individual school buildings directly. This is an important step to insure that you receive our district alerts regarding emergencies and inclement weather. The topic of weather delays and cancellations is always a popular
debate across all school districts. The only promises that I can make as your superintendent is to make decisions as early as possible using the information that I receive and to always place student and staff safety first in the process.

I hope that a sense of strong communication is being felt across the district by our central and building administrative offices. It is always my goal to keep our community informed regarding highlights and any concerns that we are facing. The incorporation of academic and social media programs within the district has
increased our ability to keep in touch with our parents and community. There seems to be no shortage of potential outlets for our communication goals. I myself have relied on the use of parents letters, my district twitter account (@BedfordSupt), and my newly created Superintendent Carl Shultz Facebook account. As a reminder, in a time when communication is so quick to spread through various forums, the most important messages are those that come directly from the primary source. Myself, and our district team, will continue
to do our best to answer specific questions regarding topics of interest. Also, there are many times that I would like to inform, discuss, or share particular pieces of information to help dispel rumors but simply cannot due to privacy protection laws. This does not mean that the district is not working on the concern or that we will not work diligently to stay ahead of any community concerns regarding our students.

Last but not least, I would like to remind all parents that Bedford Public Schools has a bond proposal on the November 6th Election Ballot. This bond preserves our existing school buildings by addressing critical exterior and interior needs to ensure appropriate learning environments for all current and future students.
On average, BPS school buildings are over fifty years in age and systems are in desperate need of updating. In addition, the bond includes state-of-the-art security upgrades that would make Bedford Public Schools one of the safest districts in the nation. Please take the time to review the detailed information on our district website or to contact myself, or someone from our administrative team, for further information.

Sincerely,

Dr. Carl Shultz

FOOD SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

Free & Reduced Meal Applications Now Available for 2018-19 School Year

Applications for free/reduced meals for 2018-2019 are available online, on the Food Service webpage, and in all the school offices.

This form must be filled our annually as benefits will expire on October 12, 2018 if a new application is not submitted. Families can also apply for Free and Reduced School Meals at any time during the school year.

Participation is confidential and anonymous to use. All student transactions at the cafeteria cash register appear identical regardless of whether students are paying full price, receiving reduced prices, or free meals, to protect the confidentiality of program participation.

This program provides the obvious benefit of providing nutritious meals as well as qualifying the school for additional benefits and access to additional resources based upon the level of participation. We encourage all eligible families to fill out the application regardless of whether or not you intend to use them. A win-win all the way around!

Food Service Donations Accepted

In the past, Bedford Public Schools has been fortunate to have received donations to help pay off students' negative food service balances. Accounts have been set up at each school to receive donations from anyone else interested in ensuring that all of our students can enjoy a healthy meal every day at school. Stop by the school office if you wish to make a similar donation.

Families can also apply for Free and Reduced School Meals at any time during the school year. Online applications can be completed through MyMealtime, and paper forms are available in each school office, or can be printed here. All student transactions at the cafeteria cash register appear identical regardless of whether students are paying full price, receiving reduced prices, or free meals, to protect the confidentiality of program participation. It's a win-win situation: the students benefit from the healthy food at breakfast and lunch with families keeping more of their hard earned money, and schools can benefit from federal funding and programs that become available based on family participation in the school meal program.
