Parents, Staff and Community Members,Now that spring has really arrived, our students are spending more time outside - both at home and at school. Mostly that is a great thing. At the same time, we need to be thinking about safety.
In particular, I am writing to you about tick management. Here are a few items I want to share with the community on the subject.
- The most effective measure for limiting ticks on our property is keeping grass cut short and removing leaf litter since that is where they prefer to live.
- We are also providing selective tick treatments on district properties based on recommendations from our pest services contractor. This is the same approach the town of Bedford is using for sports fields.
- Families can find additional recommendations for tick bite prevention and treatment in this excellent New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Resources notice.
Of course no approach will eliminate every potential risk. That is why we ask families to help. Please remind your children to avoid tick-infested areas such as overgrown grass, brush, and leaf litter, to use an insect repellent when spending time outdoors, and to do daily tick checks after being outdoors.
As always, thank you for trusting us with the care of your children.

The whole community has been very supportive of the Bedford School District, which is greatly appreciated. We value these relationships and want to be sure you are aware of a scam occurring with regards to BHS athletics. Several local businesses have been contacted by a company out of Texas and asked to contribute to support the Bedford School District and school athletic programs. This company, Sports Media Advertising, has also gone by Boost Sports, Touchdown Sports or TD Sports. This company presents a false image that they are working directly with the athletic department and through your sponsorship they will create banners, t-shirts and other promotional items that will be shipped to the High School to be used as promotional items. Rarely do they actually make or distribute anything to the District. The Bedford School District has not authorized Sports Media Advertising to use the Bedford Bulldog logo nor has the District authorized Sports Media Advertising to conduct any fundraising campaign on its behalf. In fact, the School District has sent cease and desist letters demanding that the company stop such solicitations and production of these materials.
If you have any questions please contact Corey Parker via email at email@example.com. If you have already been improperly solicited and/or provided funds to Sports Media Advertising (or one of the other names listed above) on false premises, please contact Audrey Blodgett at the New Hampshire Department of Justice, Charitable Trusts Division, at 271-3591 or via email at Audrey.Blodgett@doj.nh.gov.
