School has been cancelled in Bethel School District Thursday, December 8th.
An accumulation of ice has made the morning commute risky for many Bethel families and Bethel’s school buses, and the forecast of freezing rain has not improved. Student safety remains the district’s top priority.
Unfortunately, all K-8 Parent-Teacher conferences scheduled for today and tonight are also cancelled, along with all school-related extracurricular activities.

Thanks again, Bethel voters! With the passage of the Bethel bond measure in 2012, some of the funds were used to replace the old rubber safety tiles that surrounded our play structure with a new solid rubber surface.
The material is designed to protect children from the trips and falls they might have when playing on the structure on our playground. The protective fencing will be coming down very soon as the blue & black surface is fully cured and ready for use.
If you haven’t visited our playground after school hours or on weekends, feel free to come bring your children for play; we do not close off the area, but welcome our community to come be active and enjoy the play structure.
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.
