Here’s one way we can donate and help our neighbors during COVID-19. The Bethel Education Foundation is teaming with the Bethel School District and the Kendall Automotive Group to stage a Stuff the Truck Essentials Drive this Friday, 10:00-2:00 at Willamette High School.
Your donations of laundry detergent, cleaning supplies, gift cards, diapers, non-perishable food, toilet paper, paper towels, feminine hygiene products, toiletries, etc., will be collected and later distributed to Bethel families.
In order to maintain social distancing guidelines, volunteers will be accepting donations in the Willamette parking lot without the need for drivers to get out of their cars.
For more information, contact the Bethel Education Foundation at 541-517-3303.
Hi Kalapuya Families,
There is a very real potential that our students, like those in many other states, may not return to school this academic year. According to Colt Gill, Director of the Oregon Department of Education, we are in the midst of a “historic transformation of our education system.”
ODE is asking all districts to shift to Distance Learning, potentially through the rest of the school year, rather than providing weekly supplemental education for students.
This is a huge shift for most school districts, including Bethel. In the next two weeks, we will:
– Connect with each family to determine their access to the internet, digital devices and the most practical way for families and students to receive learning materials
– Assess our district’s technological capacity to provide Distance Learning online
– Develop lessons that can be shared online and on paper that meet the needs of all students at all levels
– Accelerate the training for our teachers to provide students lessons in different formats
– Communicate regularly with parents/guardians, who will play an important role in the effectiveness of Distance Learning
