Dear Prairie Mountain Families,

If you need to pick up items, please call the following number:  541.607.9849 (leave a message if no one picks up).

All pickups will operate through appointments as we have a skeleton crew working, and the office is not always staffed.

Distance Learning Help Is On The Way

Hello Prairie Mountain Students and Families,
We miss you all so much. You all are the first thing I think about when I wake up, and the last thing I think about before I close my eyes for bed. We (teachers and administrators) have worked hard to create meaningful supplemental learning materials for all Bethel students.

Today our teams worked just as hard stuffing envelopes filled with the 5 days of supplemental instruction for families who stated they needed theirs mailed/delivered. We have put those in the mail, and they will be delivered to homes very soon. Bethel’s Supplemental Resources are found here.

Today we met with our teacher teams and began our conversations around distance learning as directed by the Oregon Department of Education. I promise to send you more information about distance learning and what it will look like for our K-8 students in the next day or so.

Also this week, our teachers will call families to check in on how you are all doing, and asking you some questions about internet service and technology. Our Elementary Teachers will be calling each family to ask about current devices that they have that can be used for distance learning, and they will talk to about internet options and how we can help. For more information about free internet access click here.

Middle School Teachers will also need to confirm your child’s access to the internet for distance learning needs. If you have not already received a phone call from MS teachers, you can complete this short survey to tell us the status of your computer and internet needs. THIS IS ONLY FOR OUR 6-8 FAMILIES ONLY.

We have a limited number of Chromebooks available in the district and will be loaning them to students in need starting at the middle level. Once we confirm with families that there will be a Chromebook reserved in your middle school child’s name, the checkout schedule for identified PM middle school students to pick the Chromebook up is:
Thursday, 4/9, Willamette High School North Parking Lot
7:30am-9:30am Students with last name A-E
9:30am-11:30am Students with last name F-L
12:30pm-2:00pm Students with last name M-R
2:00pm-4:00pm Students with last name S-Z

Please Note: guardians MUST be present to sign the acceptable use policy before their child can get a device.

Remember that we are all in this together. Thank you for being the most amazing community and thank you for all of your love and support through all of this. Give your kids big hugs from all of us here on the Mountain.

Changing To Distance Learning

Hi Prairie Mountain 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
