Hi Meadow View 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

Dear Amazing Meadow View Students and Families,
We miss your smiles, your energy, your laughter and your presence! Our incredible MV staff missed you so much that they’ve all taken a moment to send you a message of encouragement and hope. Check out the video below–odds are you’ll spy an MV staff member or two (or three or ten or twenty) that will bring a smile to your face. Know that you are in our thoughts and we can’t wait to be back together at school again. Until then, stay healthy, stay connected and stay strong.
A Video Message From Mrs. Case and Mrs. Adler
We want you to know that we created a Facebook page for Meadow View (just search Meadow View School and it should pop up)! You may have already found it. Yay! Creating an active Facebook page has been on our to do list for a long time. In these unprecedented times, it seems more important than ever to create a space for us to stay connected as a community. This will be a place of hope, information, encouragement and celebration of our amazing MV kids—isn’t that why we’re all here?!
We hope that you are all staying healthy and finding moments throughout your day to enjoy one another. Please tell our amazing MV students that we miss them and that we are thinking of them every day. Stay healthy and well. Practice kindness daily. Check on your neighbors. Help when and where you can. We miss you, Meadow View! We will get through this together—it’s the Bethel way. #webelieveinMV
