     Cold Weather Information - Warning

    With the potential for cold weather these coming days, we want to remind you of the risks of frostbite and hypothermia. Hypothermia occurs when your body loses heat faster than it can be produced. Frostbite is an injury to the body caused by freezing.  Please remember to keep exposed skin covered while outside. Wear a hat, gloves, and scarf. Dressing in layers will help protect you from hypothermia without causing you to become overheated.  If you feel you or someone else may be suffering from frostbite or hypothermia, please seek medical attention immediately. Taking preventative action will be your best defense.

      Wearing seat belts is not only the law, but it saves lives! Did you know that the National Safety Council reports that more than 75,000 lives were saved over four years by simply clicking a seat belt?

    For the remainder of the year, seat belt checks will be conducted by state and local police officers near our school.

    Take a moment to “Click it!” It may save you a ticket, and, more importantly, it may save your life!

      Policy JCD - School Zone Transfers                                                      

    Bedford County School Board Policy JDC School Zone Transfers establishes guidelines for students to attend schools outside of their attendance zones.  The window is from March 1 until July 1 immediately preceding the school year for which the zone transfer is requested.  Based on past board directive, SRHS is closed to zone transfers for 2013-2014

    Parents, who reside in Bedford County and are not BCPS employees can request zone transfers by completing the request form located on BCPS website at http://tinyurl.com/acrcgex and submitting the form electronically, by mail or by fax.  If approved for a school zone transfer, the student is allowed to complete the sequence of grades at your school.  They do not have to re-apply annually.                

    The policy was revised on February 7,  2012.  To view the entire policy, please go to: http://www.boarddocs.com/vsba/bcsbva/Board.nsf/Public#  Click on the Policy tab and search for JCD in the search box.                            

    BCPS employees requesting school zone transfers for their children use the form for employees that is located on the BCPS  website at http://tinyurl.com/cvsk3xt.   All employee zone transfer requests are sent to the Assessment and Planning office by the employee (see bottom of form for instructions).  If approved for a school zone transfer, the student is allowed to complete the sequence of grades at your school.  They do not have to re-apply annually.
