As with any summative standardized test, this is one snapshot of how our students perform. We use data generated by this test, in conjunction with other student assessment data gathered throughout the year, to look for ways to improve. Bedford's Balanced Assessment Team and school improvement efforts continuously focus on ways to improve the education for each of our students.

CHECK FOR YOUR BUS STOP

Bus routes are updated frequently in the last few weeks before school starts as new students are added. Check for the pick-up/drop-off locations for the stop closest to you!

Tip: Use the Where's the Bus? Fleet Viewer link on the left to check the route status of your bus. It is very helpful as everyone adjusts to the routine of the routes.

NOTES FROM OUR NURSES
Summer Edition

Bedford Public Schools has two nurses that serve our students in addition to the Health Aides in each school building. To promote health and wellness, they will be drafting articles to appear on our website each month. Information in this article, and other health related topics, can found on the Health & Safety page of our website by clicking on that page link on the right under District Departments.

THE IMPORTANCE OF SUN PROTECTION!
Sunshine and swimming seem to go hand in hand during the hot summer months. Protecting yourself and your family from the harmful effects of the sun can lower your risk of acquiring skin cancer, the most preventable type of cancer. Consistent use of sunscreen at an early age will become a healthy habit leading into adulthood. The CDC provides more information on skin cancer.

SWIM SAFE!
Swimming is a great way to cool off and get exercise during the upcoming summer months. Following a few safety tips will ensure a fun, healthy activity that the whole family can enjoy together. Whether swimming in a backyard pool, a lake or the ocean, there are ways to stay safe while making those special summer memories! https://www.safekids.org/tip/swimming-safety-tips
