At the request of Eugene Police, Clear Lake was put on lockout at 2:28 this afternoon. All of our exterior doors remained secure while law enforcement officers looked for a suspect in the area.
At dismissal time students who walk or ride bikes to school were kept at the school, while bus riders and those who were picked up by parents were allowed to leave.
At 3:15 all students were allowed to leave after the school got the OK from police.
Thank you for your patience as we implemented our emergency procedures at a particularly challenging time of day.
Clear Lake Principal
In the interest of student and staff safety, all Bethel schools will be closed Monday, January 9th.
While conditions on the main roads have improved overnight, the neighborhood streets and sidewalks – and school parking lots – remain covered with ice and slush.
An announcement about Monday’s evening activities will be made later today.
All Bethel schools are on a 2-hour delay Friday, January 6th.
Buses will pick up students 2 hours later than the normal time.
With a 2-hour delay, start time for classes at Clear Lake will be 10:55.
A cold breakfast- starting at 10:30- will be available and lunch will be served at the regular times.
Dismissal will be at our regular time, 2:55.
Some side roads and sidewalks are slick, and caution is urged on the morning commute. Parents are encouraged to use their best judgement about their child’s school attendance.
In the interest of student and staff safety, Bethel School District schools will be closed Thursday, January 5th due to the ice and snow. All evening activities are also cancelled.
Today’s K-8 Parent-Teacher Conferences are also postponed and will be rescheduled at a later date.
The City of Eugene has issued an ice-snow emergency, asking us to stay off the roads. And the forecast calls for frigid temperatures throughout the day Thursday, which means the slick driving conditions are not expected to significantly improve.
This will be the 5th Snow Day in Bethel and winter has only just begun. We have also had one 2-hour delay.
As a result, days will need to be made-up during the week of June 19th. The number of make-up days has not yet been determined, but please make plans now for all Bethel schools to be in session that week.
All Bethel schools will be closed Wednesday, January 4th, due to snow.
In the interest of student and staff safety, all of Wednesday’s evening activities are also cancelled.
The District hopes to resume classes on Thursday, January 5th, which will be a half-day due to parent-teacher conferences.
