In the interest of student and staff safety, all Bethel schools will be closed Monday, January 9th.
While conditions on the main roads have improved overnight, the neighborhood streets and sidewalks – and school parking lots – remain covered with ice and slush.
An announcement about Monday’s evening activities will be made later today.
Attention Prairie Mountain 4th and 5th Grade Parents
We are excited to begin the 2nd year of partnership between the Bethel School District and Ophelia’s Place. Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based organization, dedicated to helping youth make healthy life choices through empowerment, education, and support.
Ophelia’s Place will be presenting their “Peers As Allies” class to all Bethel 5th graders as well to Prairie Mountain 4th graders this winter. Click here to read more about an informational parent meeting Tuesday, January 10th at 7:00pm at the Bethel District Office. For Prairie Mountain, the meeting will be available 4th and 5th grade parents.
All Bethel schools are on a 2-hour delay Friday, January 6th.
Buses will pick up Prairie Mountain students 2 hours later than the normal time.
With a 2-hour delay, classes for grades 6-8 will begin at 10:05 and grades K-5 at 10:10. A cold breakfast will be available beginning at 9:40. A hot lunch will also be served.
Dismissal will be at our regular time, 2:10.
Some side roads and sidewalks are slick, and caution is urged on the morning commute. Parents are encouraged to use their best judgement about their child’s school attendance.
In the interest of student and staff safety, Bethel School District schools will be closed Thursday, January 5th due to the ice and snow. All evening activities are also cancelled.
Today’s K-8 Parent-Teacher Conferences are also postponed and will be rescheduled at a later date.
Todas las escuelas están cerradas el jueves, 5 de enero, debido a la nieve y el hielo. Esperamos abrir las escuelas el viernes.
The City of Eugene has issued an ice-snow emergency, asking us to stay off the roads. And the forecast calls for frigid temperatures throughout the day Thursday, which means the slick driving conditions are not expected to significantly significantly improve.
This will be the 5th Snow Day in Bethel and winter has only just begun. We have also had one 2-hour delay.
As a result, days will need to be made-up during the week of June 19th. The number of make-up days has not yet been determined, but please make plans now for all Bethel schools to be in session that week.
