Dear Bedford Primary School Parents and Guardians,

I am excited to begin another year at Bedford Primary School and look forward to working with each student and family.  I also look forward to working with the excellent staff and supportive community as we to continue to assist our students.  We continue to be proud of the social, behavioral, and academic progress that our students continue to make with the support of their teachers, family, and the community as a whole.  Our theme for the upcoming year is “Oh the places you will go when you read!”  As a part of this theme, you will see methods of travel, travel destinations and travel activities displayed throughout the building.  Please join us in supporting and celebrating the learning of all of our students.

The school schedule for the 2018-2019 school year remains the same as last year’s schedule.  Our instructional day begins promptly at 7:55 a.m. and ends at 2:25 p.m.  To ensure student safety, students will be allowed to enter the building no earlier than 7:25 am when staff are available to provide supervision.  If you bring your child to school after 7:55 a.m., he/she will be tardy and you will need to sign them into school on the office computer.  Breakfast is available in the cafeteria from 7:25-7:55 a.m.  If your child is a car rider, please ensure that they arrive early enough to allow them time to eat breakfast and not miss important instructional time. 

Please remember that car riders should be dropped off and picked up at the side entrance to the cafeteria, and only bus riders will be dropped off in the front circle.  This enables us to closely monitor the safety of all students.   Should you choose to park and walk your child into the building, please be sure to use the sidewalks and crosswalks as opposed to walking across the front drive between buses to ensure safe arrival and dismissal.  Dismissal will begin at 2:25 p.m. each day and will be completed by 2:55 p.m.  All car riders should be picked up no later than 2:55 p.m.  If your child needs to go to a different location on any afternoon, please remember to send a note to the teacher or call the school prior to dismissal and by 2:00 p.m. to allow time for the change to be communicated to your child’s teacher. 

Visitors are welcome at Bedford Primary School and are encouraged to visit students and teachers before school, during lunch, and after school.  To assist students in maintaining focus on the teacher’s instruction, visits to the classroom during instruction is discouraged.  If you need to visit during instruction, please schedule this visit in advance through your child’s teacher and the principal.  Visitors are required to sign in and out at the office utilizing a driver’s license or state issued identification card for each visit. 

I look forward to working with each and every child and parent as we celebrate learning.   I know that this will be another great school year!

Sincerely,

Lisa L. Dellis, M. Ed.
