Safety Week at Meadow View
MV will be having a safety week from October 16th to October 20th. Throughout the week we will practice drills that include earthquake/evacuation, lock down, and a fire drill. Teachers will lead students through the drills to ensure everyone knows what to do in the event of an emergency.
Our parking lot is a very busy place. School staff are stationed throughout the arrival and dismissal areas to make sure students are safe. Our front area marked with white lines in the roundabout is for pause-parking only, so please drive slowly and do not leave your vehicle unattended.
Please use extreme caution at the Barger Drive Crosswalk Light. Remember to stop and wait for the light to turn green before proceeding through the light.
We appreciate your cooperation and support to keep Meadow View students safe.
The annual fall celebration in the Bethel neighborhood is Sunday, October 15, 1:00-5:00 at the Bountiful Bethel garden next to the Bethel School District office on Barger Dr. There will be apple juicing, a free seed swap, presentations by local organizations, and more.
Walk+Roll to School Day
October 4th is International Walk to School Day. To celebrate, schools across Oregon are holding Walk+Roll events that challenge students, families and educators to walk, bike or scoot to school. Last year, 265 Oregon schools participated. Bethel has six schools participating this year and Meadow View is one of them.
These challenges are a great reminder of the benefits of active transportation. Walk or Roll to school on October 4th and celebrate your health, the environment, and school spirit. Live too far to bike or walk to school? Try parking the family car a few blocks from school and walking the rest of the way. You can even participate by walking to and from your school bus stop.
Meadow View Picture Day is Wednesday, October 11th: Click on the link below for important information about ordering pictures online with our Meadow View School code.
