It has been a great start to the year and I would like to say thank you for welcoming both Paul and I to the Bedford community. The year is in full swing with students working diligently at their studies and getting involved in extra curricular activities. A priority is your child’s safety – and to that end rules about visitors, or parking, exist to keep our students safe. We appreciate parents abiding by the rules to check in at the office when they enter and avoid parking in the no stopping zones at arrival and dismissal times. Our safety patrols begin their duties this week, as they have now been fully trained, and we appreciate any help you can give them in keeping the crosswalk area safe. We appreciate your understanding. As always, if you have a concern or question, feel free to call, email or drop in to the office.
