Early morning winds, gusting up to 40 miles an hour, sent Bethel’s Maintenance staff to all district schools for a safety check.
While power was lost in some parts of Eugene, Bethel schools escaped with just some downed limbs and plenty of debris from trees.
Many of the larger trees around our schools received some of Mother Nature’s thinning via the winter ice storms. Tree trimming services also were hired to cut back a few other potentially dangerous limbs during the winter, so this morning’s wind did not result in a significant amount of limbs or downed trees.
Thanks go out to our reliable Maintenance staff for their quick work to check on our schools before students arrived.
