The 2018-2019 school year has begun and the first week of school is complete. Kindergarten SMART start had our K students here only one day last week. Those class rosters are set and ALL K students will begin on Monday 9/10 for the year. Students have been learning school and class rules and expectations. We will have an all-school assembly this Friday the 14th at 2:20- and parents are always welcome to come and watch. Don’t forget to sign in at the office and get a name badge whenever coming to school to visit.
Please consider coming to our first PTO meeting of the year on Thursday, 9/20, 6:30 – 7:30 pm. FREE childcare is provided. We will discuss the planned events and fundraisers for the year. We welcome new members- you attend when you can and get involved as much as your time schedule allows. We hope to see you there.
Hello Clear Lake Families,
To save you time and streamline the school registration process, Bethel School District is about to launch an online student registration system for the coming school year.
This is a secure system that allows you to verify all student demographic, emergency and medical information for your child.
The online system replaces nearly all the hard copy student registration and permission forms that parents/guardians used to complete at Clear Lake in mid-August.
You will soon receive an email or letter from our school with instructions on how to access the online student registration system. You will receive instructions and a secure “snapcode” to create your child’s account. To make the process easier for families with multiple children, you will have the option to copy all generic family information to all other students in your family.
We would appreciate you completing these online forms as soon as possible after receiving the email or letter.
Your child’s registration will not be complete until the forms have been submitted.
And, please make plans to come to Clear Lake on either August 14 from 7:00-4:00 or August 15 from 10:00-7:00 to finalize registration. If you do not have access to the Internet, you can use a computer at our school to complete the process.
If you have any further questions, please reply to this message or contact the school office after August 6th at 541-689-0511.
Este es un sistema seguro que le permite verificar toda la información demográfica, de emergencia y médica del estudiante para su hijo sin tener que ir a la oficina de la escuela.
El sistema en línea reemplaza todas las formas de registro y permiso de los estudiantes que los padres / tutores usaron para completar en la escuela a mediados de agosto.
Pronto recibirá un correo electrónico o una carta de nuestra escuela con instrucciones sobre cómo acceder al sistema de registro de estudiantes en línea. Recibirá instrucciones y un “snapcode” seguro que enlaza directamente con la información de su hijo. Para facilitar el proceso a las familias con varios hijos, usted tendrá la opción de copiar toda la información genérica de la familia a todos los demás estudiantes de su familia.
Le agradeceríamos que completara estos formularios en línea tan pronto como sea posible después de recibir el correo electrónico o la carta.
El registro de su hijo no estará completo hasta que se hayan enviado los formularios.
Y, por favor haga planes para venir a Clear Lake el 14 de agosto de 7: 00-4: 00 o el 15 de agosto de 10: 00-7: 00 para finalizar la inscripción. Si no tiene acceso a Internet, puede usar una computadora en nuestra escuela para completar el proceso.
Si tiene más preguntas, responda este mensaje o comuníquese con la oficina de la escuela después del 6 de agosto al 541-689-0511.
It’s been another fun week at Clear Lake as we head into Spring Break. Family Fun Night was a blast! Thanks again to our dedicated PTO for making that happen. There were well over 250 people here enjoying the Bingo, Ice Cream (once we got it thawed and CUT up- thanks to Mr. Gingery!), and the carnival games- all FREE.
Kids love our all-school assemblies and we had another one today-Friday- to recognize academic achievement, perfect attendance, self-managers and students of the month- and to kickoff our Read-a-Thon. Students have packets so they may begin reading over Spring break and log those reading minutes- AND raise pledge money to buy more books for our school library. There are some VERY popular books that are often all checked out from the school library- with these funds we can buy more!
On Saturday, March 31 at 12:00 NOON- Rain OR Shine- will Be Anita K’s 37th annual Easter Egg Hunt. She is a local Bethel resident who does the egg hunt all on her own on the field behind Clear Lake/Shasta. Childern 12 and under are welcome to come for the hunt. She will run groups 3 & under, 4-6, 7-9, and 10-12. She asks that parents give their children a strong plastic bag or pillow case. Paper may fall apart if it gets damp. And, Anita asks parents not to help their children unless they have a disability that requires support. She wants children to do this on their own as much as possible.
I’m also attaching questions and answers HERE about how we celebrate with children at school, in response to some parent questions last month. If you have questions that aren’t answered or if you have ideas on how to help us create inclusive celebrations at school, feel free to contact me.
Thanks for reading, have a good break!

Dear Clear Lake families,
Please talk to your child about this. It is most likely to take place at the high school level, but there may be some students at the middle and elementary levels who also plan to participate in or recognize this event.
A much-publicized nationwide effort to raise awareness about school safety has called for a student walkout of schools across the country next Wednesday, March 14th, at 10:00 a.m. (Click here for information). The proposed walkout is intended to last for 17 minutes in memory of the 17 victims of the Florida school shooting last month. We want to encourage Clear Lake parents and guardians to talk to your children about this day, and if they have been asked by other students to consider leaving school, particularly at the upper grades. We also understand that some parents may be taking their children out of school to participate.
The walkout is a student-led effort and is not organized, supported, or encouraged by the school. If it takes place, we want to ensure it is conducted in a peaceful, respectful, and safe manner.
The issue of school safety is one with which we are all concerned. We respect our students’ right to express their personal views and their interest in being informed and engaged community members. However, our school and district cannot encourage walkouts or other demonstrations that affect the learning environment. During school hours, students should be in school—safe, supervised, and learning.
Your child’s safety and education are our primary focus. The safest place for students during school hours is in the school building. Should a walkout occur, we will have staff on hand to help keep students safe, but staff cannot join the demonstration as participants.
Any students who leave school to participate in a walkout demonstration will receive an Unexcused Absence, or will be marked Tardy for the class time they miss.
Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. 541 689-0511 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Principal, Clear Lake
