Family Input on Student Success Act

Please Take This Brief Bethel Survey

It’s time to reinvest in our schools. New funding is coming to Bethel School District and we want your ideas about improvements that will benefit all students.

The Student Success Act will provide an additional $4.6 million per year to Bethel schools, beginning this fall. This new money has two purposes: to increase academic achievement while reducing disparities among student groups, and to meet students’ behavioral and mental health needs.

Throughout January, the district held multiple meetings with the community and school staff asking for thoughts on how to best invest these new funds.

In order to include still more voices, the district has created a short online survey to capture your vision for our schools, and in particular how to support our historically underserved students. Please take this brief Student Success Act survey. Your voice matters! The survey will be open through Friday, February 14.

Por Favor, Tome Esta Breve Encuesta de Bethel

Es hora de reinvertir en nuestras escuelas. Nuevos fondos están llegando al Distrito Escolar de Bethel y queremos sus ideas sobre mejoras que beneficiarán a todos los estudiantes.

La Ley de Éxito Estudiantil proporcionará $ 4.6 millones adicionales por año a las escuelas de Bethel, a partir de este otoño. Este nuevo dinero tiene dos propósitos: aumentar el rendimiento académico al tiempo que se reducen las disparidades entre los grupos de estudiantes y satisfacer las necesidades de salud mental y conducta de los estudiantes.

A lo largo de Enero, el distrito mantuvo múltiples reuniones con la comunidad y el personal de la escuela para reflexionar sobre cómo invertir mejor estos nuevos fondos.

Para incluir aún más voces, el distrito ha creado una breve encuesta en línea para capturar su visión de nuestras escuelas y, en particular, cómo apoyar a nuestros estudiantes históricamente desatendidos. Por favor realice esta breve encuesta de la Ley de Éxito Estudiantil. ¡Tu voz importa! La encuesta estará abierta hasta el Viernes, 14 de Febrero.

The playground is days away from opening! Today, Meadow View teachers had a chance to test out the playground for themselves and PLAY! We worked together as a staff to create some new playground safety expectations for students based on the design of the new structure. Tomorrow and Thursday, K-3 classes will be previewing the playground with their teachers to learn the ins and outs of the new equipment, safety and new expectations. The builders are coming tomorrow to complete an inspection and we are working to schedule the removal of the fence. Yay! Stay tuned, Meadow View!

Gaga Ball is a Hit!

Two weeks ago, a group of fabulous MV parents worked together to build a gaga ball pit for Meadow View! With playground demolition and construction happening, this gaga ball pit has been a wonderful place for students to play and will continue to be a student favorite for years to come!

A BIG thank you to these parents for volunteering their time and also to Jerry’s Home Improvement Center and SELCO Community Credit Union for their generous donations! We may need to replicate this idea for the 4th-8th playground, too!

The Flu in Bethel

Throughout the community, we are seeing an increase in student illnesses and the flu. There have been confirmed cases of the flu in Bethel schools. All flu viruses can be easily spread from person to person. That’s why we are trying to teach students about proper hygiene in order to reduce the spread of flu. We want to keep our schools open to students and functioning in a normal manner during this flu season, but we need your help:

  • Teach your children to wash their hands often with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Show your children how to cover their cough or sneeze with a tissue, or cough into their elbow. This will go a long way toward preventing the spread of colds and the flu.
  • Know the signs and symptoms of the flu. Symptoms include fever (100 degrees Fahrenheit or higher), cough, sore throat, a runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, and feeling very tired. Some people may also vomit or have diarrhea.
  • Do not send children to school if they are sick. Any children who are determined to have a fever of 100 degrees or greater, or are otherwise sick while at school, will be brought to the school health room until a parent or guardian arrives to take them home.
  • Keep sick children at home for at least 24 hours after they no longer have a fever or do not have signs of a fever, without using fever-reducing drugs.  Keeping children with a fever at home will reduce the number of people who may get infected.

We will work closely with Lane County Public Health to monitor flu conditions and make decisions about the best steps to take during this flu season. Here is a Flu Fact Sheet with more information about the flu.See the source image

 

La Gripe en Bethel

En toda la comunidad, estamos viendo un aumento en las enfermedades de los estudiantes y la gripe. Se had confirmado casos de gripe en las escuelas de Bethel. Todos los virus de la gripe se pueden transmitir fácilmente de persona a persona. Es por eso que estamos tratando de enseñar a los estudiantes sobre la higiene adecuada para reducir la propagación de la gripe. Queremos mantener nuestras escuelas abiertas a los estudiantes y que funcionen de manera normal durante esta temporada de gripe, pero necesitamos su ayuda:

  • Enseñe a sus hijos a lavarse las manos con frecuencia con agua y jabón o un desinfectante para manos a base de alcohol.
  • Muestre a sus hijos cómo cubrirse la tos o estornudar con un pañuelo desechable, o toser por el codo. Esto contribuirá en gran medida a prevenir la propagación de los resfriados y la gripe.
  • Conozca los signos y síntomas de la gripe. Los síntomas incluyen fiebre (100 grados Fahrenheit o más), tos, dolor de garganta, secreción nasal o congestión nasal, dolor de cuerpo, dolor de cabeza y sentirse muy cansado. Algunas personas también pueden vomitar o tener diarrea.
  • No envíe niños a la escuela si están enfermos. Los niños que tengan una fiebre de 100 grados o más, o que estén enfermos mientras estén en la escuela, serán llevados a la sala de salud de la escuela hasta que llegue un padre o tutor para llevarlos a casa.
  • Mantenga a los niños enfermos en casa durante al menos 24 horas después de que ya no tengan fiebre o no tengan signos de fiebre, sin usar medicamentos para reducir la fiebre. Mantener a los niños con fiebre en casa reducirá la cantidad de personas que pueden infectarse.

Trabajaremos en estrecha colaboración con Lane County Public Health para controlar las condiciones de la gripe y tomar decisiones sobre los mejores pasos a seguir durante esta temporada de gripe. Aqui hay una hoja informativa con más información sobre la gripe.
