bedford county schools logoBeginning Monday, Bedford County Public Schools will add 10 minutes to the end of each school day because of class time missed for inclement weather. Families of students have been contacted by letter this week and transportation schedules have been adjusted accordingly. Officials say the adjustment to the school day is necessary, otherwise the division would fall 11 hours short of the state requirement of instructional time. Media outlets report, the school board’s other options included adding school days during spring break, extending the school year and holding classes on Saturday.
