The Bedford County Public School Calendar is initially developed around 180 instructional days.  Extra instructional time beyond the 990 hour state minimum, however, can be used for early dismissals, late openings, and make-ups. Due to time scheduled beyond state requirements, the first 5 missed days will not be made up. Dates marked by an asterisk (*) above will be used to make up days or hours missed due to inclement weather beyond the first 5. Only in extreme circumstances will days during Thanksgiving, Winter, or Spring Breaks be used for make-up. Every effort will be made to communicate any calendar change to the school community as early as possible as decisions are made.

Teachers may be required to report on snow days.
