Bethel Suspends Large and Non-Essential Gatherings

 

At the direction of Oregon Governor Kate Brown and the recommendation of public health experts, Bethel School District will begin postponing events which are intended to bring together large groups of students, parents and staff. This is intended to encourage social distancing as a method to prevent the spread of COVID-19, although at this time no cases of the coronavirus have been confirmed in Lane County.

Large non-essential school and district-based gatherings and group activities such as Oregon Battle of the Books, music concerts, school assemblies, field trips, PTO meetings, KIDSPORTS practices and games, and family nights will be suspended. This action will remain in effect for approximately 4 weeks, with the possibility that the time frame could be adjusted. This means our Family Fun Night (tonight, March 12th) is postponed and the field trip to the Hult Center on March 17th are cancelled. We will work on rescheduling our Family Fun Night and information will be sent out later.

Bethel School District fully realizes that this change will impact a number of highly anticipated events for which students, parents, and staff have worked long and hard to prepare. We are not alone in experiencing these unanticipated changes; school districts throughout the state are now making similar plans to postpone events.

These actions are intended to slow the spread of the coronavirus and help keep our students and community safe and our schools open. Bethel staff are disinfecting each school daily and reinforcing healthy habits with students, such as washing hands, covering coughs correctly, avoiding touching the face, and not coming to school with a fever or cough.

Updated information will be shared as this social distancing is implemented and further guidance to schools is recommended.
