Snow Day Make-Up Plan

Irving Families,

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

Irving staff still needs to meet to determine what – if any – adjustments need to be made to our end-of-the-year activities, such as field trips.  I will keep you up to date with any changes.  

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.

Bethel Accepting Transfer Application

Bethel School District is now accepting Transfer requests for the coming school year.

Click here to submit a Transfer request.

Transfer applications will be accepted through March 31, and must be renewed every year.

  • Students who were admitted to their current school through the Open Enrollment process that was used the last several years are permanent and no further action is needed.
  • Students who transferred after this school year started – and all future transfers – will need to submit a transfer request.

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.
