The first day of school at Malabon will go on as scheduled Tuesday, but smoke in the air from Oregon wildfires may keep all Bethel students indoors.
The school district will follow these guidelines shared by the Lane Regional Air Protection Agency (LRAPA):
- When the amount of smoke in the air limits visibility to 1-3 miles, the air is unhealthy and we consider keeping all students indoors or allowing only light outdoor activity. All activities for students sensitive to air pollution will be moved indoors.
- When visibility is one mile or less, we will definitely keep all students indoors.
LRAPA monitors the current air quality on an hourly basis on this web page, and Bethel School District will be checking the current air quality index regularly.
In addition, Bethel district nurses have a list of those students with pre-existing conditions who might be especially impacted by poor air quality, so even if the conditions improve slightly those students may be kept indoors for their own protection.
We have a great air handling system, but as always, in any weather-related situation parents should make the final decision on whether to send their children to school.
We are looking forward to our first day of school this Tuesday, September 5th! If you haven’t registered your child yet, please stop into our office anytime after 7:45am.
Please click here to see the changes to our dismissal procedures at Malabon. There are a few changes in our routine so take a minute to familiarize yourself with these changes if you are picking your child up in a vehicle. Our goal is to keep all safe during this busy transition. Thank you for your support and patience.
Have a great weekend!
Hi Malabon Families,
Here’s great news before the school year starts: our district is restoring two days to the end of the school calendar that had been designated as Budget Reduction Days.
The District was able to restore those days next June thanks to slight underspending at the end of the last school year, and slight increases in expected revenue.
This leaves 3 Budget Reduction Days remaining:
• October 13 (a Teacher Inservice Day when students wouldn’t attend anyway)
• November 22 (day before Thanksgiving holiday)
• June 18
I’ll send you a revised school year calendar in two weeks after it is officially approved by the School Board. Meanwhile, this news is a real boost for everyone and the excitement is building for the start of the school year at Malabon.
Hello Malabon Families,
Here are some important dates for your calendars:
Families of returning and new students, including pre-registered kindergartners, are asked to stop by Malabon sometime during our open registration hours:

Parents of returning students will need to update and review information already on file. New parents should bring child’s immunization records and any information about previous schools attended.
If you know that your child will not be returning to Malabon this fall, please give us a call at your earliest convenience at 541-461-6421 so that we have this information.
