Don’t forget that President’s Day, Monday February 20 is indeed a school day. The district brought back this previous day off in order to support make-up days from the winter weather. We look forward to seeing our students tomorrow.

Seeking Out Parent Support

Families, we are looking for folks interested in volunteering to read with students, shoot baskets with kids in the morning, or provide some pull-out fact practice. If you are interested in providing some specific support, please connect with me. Also, we have a team of teachers that will meet once per month to go over our school-wide goals. We would love to have some parent input on this team. Our first meeting is this Thursday at 3:00 p.m. If you might be interested in attending, please contact me.

Snow Day Make-Up Schedule Posted

FF Snow

Hi Fairfield Families,

We are excited to share the District’s finalized plans to make up lost classroom time due to the six Snow Days and two Delayed Starts we’ve already experienced. These changes will allow our students to recover meaningful instructional time without putting a big dent in family summer plans.

Here are the new changes. Please make sure to mark them on your calendar.

  • February 13 (previously a high school no-school day) will become a school day for all district students
  • February 20 (Presidents Day) will become a school day for all students
  • March 3 (previously a no-school day for K-8 students) will become a school day for all students
  • Monday June 19th, and Tuesday June 20thwill be full school days for K-11 students (seniors will have graduated)
  • June 20thwill now be the last day of school for students (it will be a full-day, not an early release)
  • If we have additional Snow Days this winter they may be added to the calendar after June 20th

Please mark these changes on your calendar and plan to have your child in school on these days.  All Bethel students will now be in the classroom for more hours than is required by the state, and we want to provide as much meaningful instructional time as possible. The cancelled school days have shown that each day of instruction is important for our children.

Thanks for your patience as the schedule was being reworked, and let me know if you have any questions.

Jenny

Familias de Fairfield,

Estamos muy contentos de compartir los planes finalizados del Distrito para reemplazar el tiempo perdido en el aula debido a los seis Días de Nieve y dos Retrasos que ya hemos experimentado. Estos cambios permitirán que los estudiantes de Fairfield recuperen tiempo de instrucción significativo sin afectar demasiado los planes de verano de la familia.

El nuevo horario se adjunta, y aquí están los cambios:

  • El 13 de febrero (anteriormente un día sin clases para la escuela secundaria) se convertirá en un día escolar para todos los estudiantes en los grados K-12.
  • El 20 de febrero (Día de los Presidentes) se convertirá en un día escolar para todos los estudiantes
  • El 3 de marzo (anteriormente un día sin clases para los estudiantes de K-8) se convertirá en un día escolar para todos los estudiantes.
  • Lunes 19 de junio y martes 20 de junio serán días escolares completos para estudiantes de K-11 (los estudiantes mayores se habrán graduado)
  • El 20 de junio será el último día de clases para los estudiantes (será un día completo; los estudiantes no saldrán temprano)
  • Si tenemos días adicionales de nieve este invierno, pueden ser agregados al calendario después del 20 de junio

Por favor marque estos cambios en su calendario y planee que su hijo/a asista a la escuela en estos días. Todos los estudiantes de Bethel ahora estarán en el salón de clases por más horas que las requeridas por el estado, y queremos proveer tanto tiempo instructivo significativo como sea posible. Los días escolares cancelados han demostrado que cada día de instrucción es importante para nuestros hijos.

Gracias por su paciencia mientras el horario estaba siendo reelaborado, y esperamos que nos llamen al si tiene alguna pregunta. 541-689-3751.

Atentamente,

Jenny
