Welcome to 103.5 WDBF-lpFM Brave Nation. Broadcasting from the Hoosier Pattern Studios, we are the Voice of Bellmont High School. We play non-stop music 24/7 and are completely student-operated (well, there is an adult GM but he just brings us food and candy but he is a nice man). We are a low-powered (LP) FM station operating with 100 watts of power, we cover all of Adams County, and—if it’s really cloudy—we reach Allen, Wells, and Jay counties.

MONDAY MARCH 16TH UPDATE:
Parents and Guaridans,
For families that do not have access to Internet at home, North Adams has relocated access points near the exterior of our building so you may access our WIFI from outside of the building.
At this point in time, we have 2 locations available:

If you wish to access our WIFI, we invite you to come to our campus, access our WIFI from one of these locations, download your assignments and then you will be able to go back to your home to complete the assignments.
We are working on an additional access point and when it is made available, we will update you with that information.
We have also created a website that is designated for all information and resources related to Coronavirus and our extended closure period.

The Frequently Asked Questions document can be found by visiting our website at www.nadams.k12.in.us.
As new questions emerge, we will update our FAQ document for your reference. We encourage you to continue to check back to our website and or social media for the latest information during this time.
SATURDAY MARCH 14TH UPDATE
Parents and Guardians,
As you know, the health and safety of our staff and students is the first priority of our district. Evaluating the latest information that we have received this morning, Saturday, March 14, 2020, regarding Coronavirus, and in speaking with local health officials, our School Board and Administration team, effective immediately, North Adams Community Schools will be closed, in an abundance of precaution to reduce or prevent the spread of illness in our community.
Beginning Monday, March 16 through Sunday, April 12, North Adams Community Schools will be closed.
At this time, we wish to share our plans for this week, March 16-March 20, (we will be sharing what the weeks to follow look like soon):
Monday, March 16th: Waiver Day (no eLearning)
Tuesday, March 17th: eLearning
Wednesday, March 18th: eLearning

Friday, March 20th: Waiver Day (no eLearning)
We are dedicated to transparency and planning. We trust you have many questions about the next few days. Our staff is working diligently on preparing a list of answers to many frequently asked questions and, as our past few days have shown, we will be informing you of important updates and information as it is available. Additional information will be shared via our website, social media and SchoolMessenger notifications later this weekend; please be watching for updates.
We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work together for the safety of our school community. While we understand that some of changes to our school schedule are uncomfortable and uncertain times, in the end, what we believe is most important is the assurance that we are being proactive and hopefully doing what we can to provide a safer and healthier community for all of our residents.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Administration Office at 260-724-7146. Our administration office will be operating during regular working hours, Monday through Friday 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM.
