PRESENTATION FROM COMMUNITY FORUMS ON BOND PROPOSAL

thumbnail image of first slide of May Community Forum Presentation

You can view the May Community Forum Presentation here. Two slides (16 & 17) have been updated to reflect the desire of the board to pursue a 20 year bond versus a 25 year bond; and the receipt of new 2018 taxable property valuation data. The original presentation was based on the data available from 2017. The good news is that property values went up in Bedford Township in the last year which reduces the amount of mills needed and cost to the taxpayers.

NOTE FROM SUPERINTENDENT ABOUT TRAGIC LOSS

Dear Parents and Community Members,

It is with great sadness that I share the news of a tragic event that has taken the lives of two young students. On Wednesday, July 4, 2018, we received word that incoming Bedford High School 9th grader, Justin Haun, and his sister, Alyssa, were fatally injured when a vehicle hit the two young teenagers as they were walking along Sterns Road. Justin Haun attended Bedford Junior High School and was set to attend Bedford High School in the Fall. Alyssa Haun has not attended Bedford Public Schools and was visiting from her home near Cleveland, Ohio.

As an eighth grader, Justin was an incredible math student having earned the Junior High School's Math Student of the Year Award. He also played in 8th grade orchestra and was a member of the cross country team. This tragic news will no doubt leave everyone that has had contact with Justin and Alyssa grief stricken and at a loss for words. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Justin and Alyssa.

Bedford Public Schools will be setting up professional counseling support for anyone who is in need. If you or any member of your family is in need of immediate professional support in coping with this tragedy, I ask that you contact Gabby's Ladder at (734) 242-8773. Gabby's Ladder is a non-profit organization located in Monroe, Michigan that specializes in providing support for grieving children, adults and families at no cost. In addition, BPS will be adding information and resources on our website to assist students and families. Please reach out to the district administration office with any further assistance.

Sincerely,
Dr. Carl Shultz
Superintendent, Bedford Public Schools

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 will also be available in August at back to school meetings, 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.

Participation is confidential and anonymous to use; staff and fellow students are not aware of who is, or is not, a part of this program. This program provides the obvious benefit of providing nutricious 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!

Summer Meal Opportunities

As the school year is coming to a close, there are thousands of sites in Michigan where kids can gather for healthy, free summer meals. Find a local program near you by calling 2-1-1 or text "Food" to 877-877. The Summer Food Service Program helps to fill the gap so kids can receive nutritious meals when school isn't in session.

The site closest to Bedford is:
Luna Pier Library
Serving lunch daily Monday-Saturday from 12:45-2:15 beginning June 18

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.
