Student Enrichment Resources

Hi again, Clear Lake Families,

I am checking in with some updated resources for you. We miss your child’s presence at Clear Lake and we look forward to when we will all be back together.

This week was scheduled to be Spring Break before our school calendar was interrupted. We are still attempting to get a clearer picture of what to expect for the next several months.

In the meantime, our Bethel staff have been working to plan materials and activities for students in all grade levels. We intend to offer continued supplemental enrichment for your child while schools are closed.

Supplemental Materials: Materials will be available to you on April 6th in two formats: online and hard-copy paper packets. These will be made available each week throughout the closure. We are working hard to ensure that all supplemental materials are accessible to all of our students. 

Enrichment: In the meantime, we have vetted and collected resources to support the enrichment of your student. Click here to access these enrichment resources. 

Check-In: Your child’s teachers will be contacting you after Spring Break to share more information about the supplemental materials, and simply because they miss their students! 

High School Students: All families have questions about what is happening with high school students. The Oregon Department of Education is currently working on a plan to address the unique needs of high school students during this closure. We know that high school students and their families are concerned about credits, as well as various tests such as SAT, IB and AP. We will communicate details once guidance from ODE is provided.

These are unprecedented times which result in many questions. We will share more information with you as soon as we get it. In the meantime, take good care of yourself and those around you.


Hola Familias,

Esperamos que este mensaje le encuentre bien. Extrañamos la presencia de sus hijos en la escuela y esperamos con ansias cuando volveremos a estar juntos.

Esta semana estaba programada para las vacaciones de primavera, cuando teníamos un calendario escolar oficial. Todavía estamos intentando tener una idea más clara de qué esperar para los próximos meses.

Mientras tanto, nuestro personal de Bethel ha estado trabajando para planificar materiales Continue reading

A message from Clear Lake

Dear Clear Lake Families,
I know this time is bringing uncertainty and lots of questions. I want you to know we are thinking of our students and miss them terribly. We are in uncertain times and doing the best we can to provide community supports. Bethel is working very hard to meet the immediate needs of students and families. They have opened 10 sites to provide meals and have provided 683 meals today!   We have also shared community resources for health access, mental health supports, and housing assistance. (Check the blog for locations and additional resources)
 I can’t tell you exactly what is next. As a district, we are rapidly responding to the constant, changing updates while trying to plan further ahead without a clear idea of what the future will look like. Yesterday the Governor issued an executive order to close schools until April 28th. In addition, schools are to provide supplemental education. In the next day or so, ODE will offer guidance on what “supplemental education” entails. This morning our district leaders and admin team met via ZOOM (virtual meeting) to begin planning and figure out what the next steps will be. 
Next week is spring break and our staff will not be working. After spring break, teachers will continuing their planning for supplemental instruction (with ODE guidance). This will likely include a combination of online and paper pencil learning opportunities. Soon, schools will be reaching out to families to survey technology access. This work is happening district-wide and we continue to prepare to meet the varying needs and levels of learners across all grades. This is combined with our need to provide equitable access to resources for ALL students. I understand that this information may create more questions than answers. Hang in there, deep breaths and be patient. We will continue to communicate as we know more.
Rest up and stay healthy! We miss our Clear Lake family and the amazing energy of our school. We are in unusual times and need to come together as a community. It is important for us to reach out to those in need, continue to check in with family and friends and practice kindness daily. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to support your family. We will get through this together. We appreciate all of you. Our hearts are with you even if we cannot physically be with you. Keep practicing adequate social distancing… 🙂
Stay Healthy,


UPDATE: Schools Closed Through April 28

Through Executive Order 20-08, Governor Kate Brown has ordered all public schools to remain closed for another six weeks, through April 28. That period may be extended or terminated earlier by the Governor.

Supplemental education and learning supports to students will be developed and delivered through independent study and other appropriate options.

School meals will continue. Bethel provided 683 meals to students Tuesday; 300 more than Monday.

All School employees will continue to receive their regular pay. They may be required to assist with the provision of supplemental services and emergency management activities.

More details will be provided as they become available from the Governor’s office, the Oregon Department of Education (ODE), the Oregon Health Authority (OHA), the Department of Human Services (DHS), and other agency partners.
