Americans with Disabilities Act Compliance
The Bethel School District fully supports the ADA and its requirement to make Websites ADA compliant. We are actively working to meet and maintain those requirements.
At the request of Eugene Police a Lockdown was called at Willamette High School Wednesday morning. It ended at 10:48.
Students at WHS remained in their classrooms while police searched the campus. There was a report of a person, possibly a student, who might have had a handgun on campus. Police searched throughout the school, interviewed several students, and did not find any evidence of a threat.
In an abundance of caution, Lockouts where in place at Cascade Middle School, Malabon Elementary and Fairfield Elementary. Just the exterior doors at those schools were locked and students were not allowed outside their buildings.
Eugene police plan to maintain a presence at Willamette for the remainder of the day.

Greeted with hugs, smiles and familiar faces, students returned to Cascade Middle School Monday.
Teachers had met on Sunday to prepare the proper welcome for their students. A shared message was read to students in each homeroom class and kids were given the opportunity to share their thoughts or ask questions.
A Care Room was set up with counselors on hand to talk with students who needed support. Volunteers brought in dogs from Fetch Therapy Dogs which soothed anxiety for some kids and adults. And a number of district-level staff were on hand to provide whatever assistance was needed.
Teaching and learning went on as usual throughout the school, providing students the familiarity of their routines as they work to get back to a normal school atmosphere.
