Parents and children posed for pictures as the new school year began in Bethel School District.

Students are back in school for the 72nd year in Bethel School District history.

There were pictures taken, students welcomed, friendships renewed, and routines established.

Road construction on Barger Drive created long delays and added to the anxiety of some students and their parents. The road work will continue for a few more weeks, so drivers should plan accordingly.

10th, 11th and 12th graders start at Willamette High School Wednesday, and Kalapuya High School welcomed students last Thursday.
