Community Conference for Parents, Students, Educators

Our African American and Black students are experiencing an achievement gap in every indicator of academic success. Now is a time to strategize solutions to address the issues facing our children today. All community members are encouraged to attend a conference at LCC to engage and build community between students, parents and educators. Click here for more information (PDF)about the free April 27th conference.

Improvements Coming To Bethel

Bethel will see some changes to improve safety for pedestrians, bikers and drivers. This summer the City is planning a paving project on Barger Drive from Primrose (just west of Beltline) to Altamont (just east of Beltline.) The City is also adding a crosswalk at Avalon and Haviture Way, as well as speed calming measures on Avalon.

At a later date, Safe Routes to School will be funding a crosswalk on North Terry Street near Kalapuya High School; school speed zone flashers and speed readers on Barger in front of Meadow View School; a crosswalk and curb extensions at Marshall Ave and Taney St., along with traffic calming devices on Marshall; and a new crosswalk, pedestrian island, and pedestrian flashers on Barger at Altamont.

Snow Day Make-Up

Thanks for your patience while it was determined how we could make up the school days lost to the snow.

We will be restoring three days to the calendar in June.

  • The last day for students was supposed to be Thursday, June 13, a half day.  Now students’ last day will be Tuesday, June 18th and it will also be a half day.
  • FYI, Willamette’s graduation will remain June 7th

If there are any changes to year-end activities due to the addition of school days, we will let you know as soon as those decisions are finalized.

The three additional school days may conflict with summer vacation plans. In some cases that is unavoidable. But, it is important to provide as much learning time as we can for our students, so we want as many children in school as possible.

Finally, the plan for additional days isn’t yet official. It will go to the School Board for final approval on April 8th, but we do not anticipate any changes by the Board.

Welcome Ms. Mollinary

Please join me in welcoming Ms. Wendy Mollinary as Danebo’s School Counselor. She will work with our students through the remainder of our school year and we are VERY excited to have her join us!

Beginning this fall, transfers will be necessary for students seeking to attend a school other than their “neighborhood school” or for new out-of-district students to enroll in Bethel on a space-available basis.

Families will be notified in early April about whether their transfer requests for the coming school year have been approved.
