Student Enrichment Resources

Malabon families, this is a check-in and a chance to share some good news. First of all, we truly hope you are all remaining healthy. We look forward to the day when we can reopen Malabon again.

This week was scheduled to be Spring Break before our school calendar was interrupted. We are still attempting to get a clearer picture of what to expect for the next several months.

In the meantime, our Bethel staff have been working to plan materials and activities for students in all grade levels. We intend to offer continued supplemental enrichment for your child while schools are closed.

Supplemental Materials: Materials will be available to you on April 6th in two formats: online and hard-copy paper packets. These will be made available each week throughout the closure. We are working hard to ensure that all supplemental materials are accessible to all of our students. 

Enrichment: In the meantime, we have vetted and collected resources to support the enrichment of your student. Click here to access these enrichment resources. 

Check-In: Your child’s teachers will be contacting you after Spring Break to share more information about the supplemental materials, and simply because they miss their students! 

High School Students: All families have questions about what is happening with high school students. The Oregon Department of Education is currently working on a plan to address the unique needs of high school students during this closure. We know that high school students and their families are concerned about credits, as well as various tests such as SAT, IB and AP. We will communicate details once guidance from ODE is provided.

These are unprecedented times which result in many questions. We will share more information with you as soon as we get it. In the meantime, take good care of yourself and those around you.

 

Hola Familias, esperamos que este mensaje le encuentre bien. Extrañamos la presencia de sus hijos en la escuela y esperamos con ansias cuando volveremos a estar juntos.

Esta semana estaba programada para las vacaciones de primavera, cuando teníamos un calendario escolar oficial. Todavía estamos intentando tener una idea más clara de qué esperar para los próximos meses.

Mientras tanto, nuestro personal de Bethel ha estado trabajando para planificar materiales Continue reading

Coronavirus Update: 3.9.20

Hi Malabon Families,

Here’s the latest information from the Oregon Health Authority about response to COVID-19, the coronavirus.

Note that all Bethel schools were already doing most of what the OHA is recommending. Now, our staff will be even more vigilant and will refer students to the school health room for a quick check if they witness a student with an unusual amount of coughing, sneezing, etc. This is in an abundance of caution.

The OHA also recommends “social distancing”, trying to reduce interactions between people by staggering lunches and recesses or dividing into smaller groups. We’re still trying to figure out how we might be able to do that.

Meanwhile, keep reinforcing the healthy habits of hand washing, avoiding touching the face, covering a cough and staying home when ill, and when more information about COVID-19 is available, I’ll share it with you.

 

Aquí está la información más reciente de la Autoridad de Salud de Oregón sobre la respuesta al COVID-19, el coronavirus.

Tenga en cuenta que todas las escuelas de Bethel ya están haciendo la mayor parte de lo que recomienda la OHA. Ahora, nuestro personal estará aún más atento y remitirá a los estudiantes a la sala de salud de la escuela para una revisión rápida si presencian a un estudiante con una cantidad inusual de tos, estornudos, etc. Esto es muy precavido.

La OHA también recomienda el “distanciamiento social”, tratando de reducir las interacciones entre las personas escalonando almuerzos y recesos o dividiéndolos en grupos más pequeños. Todavía estamos tratando de descubrir cómo podríamos hacer eso.

Mientras tanto, siga reforzando los hábitos saludables de lavarse las manos, evitar tocarse la cara, cubrirse la tos y quedarse en casa cuando esté enfermo, y cuando haya más información disponible sobre COVID-19, la compartiré con usted.

Student Health Update

Malabon Families,

Questions have been asked about the coronavirus and our school’s preparation and response to a potential outbreak. Below is the latest information available, but be aware it will likely change because the circumstances around the virus are very fluid.

Communication: Expect regular and possibly changing information from us. Bethel School District remains in close contact with Lane County Public Health (LCPH) and the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) on how to best prepare for the possibility of the virus spreading and impacting our schools in some way. The coronavirus, also called COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) is a respiratory disease that has been confirmed in Oregon. We are asking many questions of ODE on school operations. Here is a Q&A from ODE and the Oregon Health Authority. We are also seeking input from LCPH on prevention. This is a new experience for everyone, but we will continue giving you updated, factual information as soon as it is available.

Immediate Response: As of today, Malabon and all Bethel schools will be disinfected on a daily basis. This means all flat surfaces like desks and table tops, as well as door knobs, heavily trafficked areas, etc., will be wiped down. This is a proactive step to help prevent the spread of this virus.

All of our teachers will be re-teaching healthy habits with their students, referring to this flyer provided by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) which has emphasized that simple washing of hands is important to limiting the spread of COVID-19. Please reaffirm these common steps with your children at home so their healthy habits become second nature.

Masks: The CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a face mask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19. There is no state ban against your child wearing a medical mask at school. However, face masks do not filter or block very small particles in the air that may be transmitted by coughs and sneezes. If your child is sick, please do not send them to school. The same message is being shared with staff.

Long-Term Preparation: The District is working to determine what education and meals might be able to take place and how that would work if, in a worst-case scenario, schools were asked to close for weeks at a time. We are in the midst of determining the options and there are many factors to consider. As we settle on more concrete ideas, those will be shared with you.

In that same vein, please begin making your own arrangements for childcare should our schools be closed for an extended period. Again, we do not anticipate the worst-case scenario.

More Resources: Accurate and fact-based information is always helpful. So, here are some reliable sites for those who want to learn more.

Personally, I want to encourage everyone to remain connected during this time of uncertainty. The most vulnerable populations to COVID-19 are older adults and persons with already compromised immune systems. In the meantime, our teaching and learning is continuing, and with the increased awareness and proactive measures we remain hopeful that COVID-19 will not be as impactful as some people fear.

Actualización de salud estudiantil

Familias de la escuela Malabon

Se han hecho preguntas sobre el coronavirus y la preparación y respuesta de nuestra escuela ante un posible brote. A continuación se muestra la última información disponible, pero tenga en cuenta que probablemente cambiará porque las circunstancias en torno al virus son muy fluidas.

 

Comunicación: Espere de nosotros información regular y posiblemente cambiante. El Distrito Escolar de Bethel se mantiene en estrecho contacto con la Salud Pública del Condado de Lane (LCPH) y el Departamento de Educación de Oregón (ODE) sobre cómo prepararse mejor para la posibilidad de que el virus se propague e impacte en nuestras escuelas de alguna manera. El coronavirus, también llamado COVID-19 (enfermedad por coronavirus 2019) es una enfermedad respiratoria que se ha confirmado en Oregón. Estamos haciendo muchas preguntas de ODE sobre las operaciones escolares. Aquí hay un Q&A de ODE y la Autoridad de Salud de Oregon. También estamos buscando aportes de LCPH sobre prevención. Esta es una experiencia nueva para todos, pero continuaremos brindándole información actualizada y objetiva tan pronto como sea posible.

 

Respuesta inmediata: A partir de hoy, Malabon y todas las escuelas de Bethel serán desinfectadas diariamente. Esto significa que todas las superficies planas, como escritorios y mesas, así como las perillas de las puertas, áreas con mucho tráfico, etc., serán limpiadas. Este es un paso proactivo para ayudar a prevenir la propagación de este virus.Todos nuestros maestros volverán a enseñar hábitos saludables con sus estudiantes, refiriéndose a este volante proporcionado por los Centros para el Control de Enfermedades (CDC) que ha enfatizado que el simple lavado de manos es importante para limitar la propagación de COVID-19. Reafirme estos pasos comunes con sus hijos en casa para que sus hábitos saludables se conviertan en una segunda naturaleza. Máscaras: los CDC no recomiendan que las personas que están bien usan una máscara facial para protegerse de las enfermedades respiratorias, incluido COVID-19. No hay prohibición estatal contra que su hijo use una máscara médica en la escuela. Sin embargo, las mascarillas no filtran ni bloquean partículas muy pequeñas en el aire que pueden transmitirse al toser o estornudar. Si su hijo está enfermo, no lo envíe a la escuela. El mismo mensaje será compartido con el personal.

 

Preparación a largo plazo: El Distrito está trabajando para determinar qué educación y comidas podrían llevarse a cabo y cómo funcionaría si, en el peor de los casos, se pidiera a las escuelas que cerraran por semanas. Estamos en medio de determinar las opciones y hay muchos factores a considerar. A medida que nos conformamos con ideas más concreadas, se compartirán con usted.En el mismo sentido, comience a hacer sus propios arreglos para el cuidado de los niños si nuestras escuelas permanecen cerradas por un período prolongado. Nuevamente, no anticipamos el peor de los casos.

 

Más recursos: la información precisa y basada en hechos siempre es útil. Entonces, aquí hay algunos sitios confiables para aquellos que desean aprender más:Centros para el Control de Enfermedades Autoridad de Salud de Oregon Salud del Condado de Lane  Personalmente, quiero alentar a todos a permanecer conectados y racionales durante este tiempo de incertidumbre. Las poblaciones más vulnerables a COVID-19 son adultos mayores y personas con sistemas inmunes ya comprometidos. Mientras tanto, nuestra enseñanza y aprendizaje continúan, y con el aumento de la conciencia y las medidas proactivas, tenemos la esperanza de que COVID-19 no sea tan impactante y algunas personas temen.
