No School Friday, March 15th

A Reminder that Friday, March 15th is a No School Day for all K-8 students in Bethel. This is a grading day for teachers. Report cards will be sent home during the week of March 18-22 with your student. 

And then, there is no school March 25-29 for spring break.


Snow Day Make-Up Plan

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

Staff at Malabon will be meeting to determine  what – if any – adjustments need to be made to our end-of-the-year activities, such as our 5th grade completion ceremony.  I 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.

Bethel Transfers

Bethel Accepting Transfer Applications

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.

Update: Bethel Schools Closed Again Thursday

Freezing temperatures overnight and treacherous morning driving conditions have forced the closure of all Bethel schools again on Thursday, February 28th.

We had hoped that a 2-hour delay would allow the conditions to improve. However, the safety of our students and staff is our top priority and their ability get to school is still compromised.

All school-related evening activities are cancelled.

The City of Eugene’s ice/snow emergency remains in effect. Residents are encouraged to stay off the roads unless absolutely necessary.

Las bajas temperaturas de la noche a la mañana y las peligrosas condiciones de manejo por la mañana han forzado el cierre de todas las escuelas de Bethel el jueves 28 de febrero.

La emergencia de hielo / nieve de la ciudad de Eugene sigue vigente. Se anima a los residentes a mantenerse fuera de las carreteras a menos que sea absolutamente necesario.
