Bethel School District has proactively chosen to test the water in our schools, including Clear Lake, responding to concerns raised throughout the country about the possibility of lead in school drinking water.
The samples from all drinking water sources in all Bethel schools will be tested as soon as school is out for summer. This will allow an independent professional environmental service to access the water sources without interruption in order to ensure the most accurate testing.
The samples may take at least 10 business days to process but the results will be immediately shared with families and staff. While there are no federal or state requirements that schools test their water, the safety of the students in our care is our highest priority.
This is the time for all incoming kindergartners – and their parents – to make plans for school.
Clear Lake’s Kindergarten Orientations are next Thursday, February 12th at 3:15 and 6:30.
Clear Lake and all Bethel schools will offer FULL-DAY Kindergarten this fall as part of the District’s commitment to prepare every student to graduate ready for College or the Workplace.
We will have:
- All-day Kindergarten classes
- Academic & Social/Emotional development
- Even more creative, caring, effective teachers
- New textbooks & modern technology
- Safe & secure environment
Come see for yourself! Join us for Clear Lake’s Kindergarten Orientation next Thursday and take home a free book for your kindergartner-to-be. And spread the word if you know someone who might have a child that will be of Kindergarten age.
Clear Lake Elementary is powered-up again after an electrical outage forced school to be cancelled Friday.
EWEB crews spent hours dealing with the early morning failure and worked on nearby transformers to restore power.
Clear Lake was the only school impacted by the outage, and it took some time to re-check the school’s fire panel and security system, and restart the heating system.
School at Clear Lake will be back to normal Monday.
Student registration at Clear Lake has started and the countdown is on for the first day of school.
At registration families will receive important material about bus transportation, free and reduced lunch opportunities, school insurance, and the principal’s blog.
We’ll ask parents to fill out some simple forms to confirm contact information, student health, field trips, home language, and Special Services.
Mark your calendars for 4:30 on the 29th for the Clear Lake Open House.
And then comes the big day, the start of school, September 3rd.
Grade 4 & 5 volunteers will give up their lunch recess one week at a time as Green Team members. They will help collect leftovers from cafeteria trays for composting in our courtyard. They’ll also help collect the reusable metal spoons and forks that will eliminate the old plastic-ware going into the garbage each day. The students are part of the school’s effort to be an Oregon Green School.
