Tentative Timeline Set for Hybrid Reopening

Here is the latest update from Superintendent Chris Parra.

A tentative schedule has now been set!
Bethel Students in all grades will be welcomed back into school with Hybrid Instruction:

  • Kindergarten students are to begin Hybrid in-person instruction on Monday, March 15
  • Grades 1 & 2 will return with Hybrid on March 29 (right after Spring Break)
  • Grades 3-12 will return with Hybrid on April 5
  • Grades 9-12 will return with Hybrid on April 5
  • Click here for a visual reopening timeline
  • The timeline remains tentative depending on a safe reintroduction to school for our youngest students and continued improvement in the number of COVID cases in our area.

The start of the high school Hybrid schedule also coincides with the beginning of Term 5 at Willamette High School.

Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL) will continue for those students who indicated a preference to remain completely online. However, there is a possibility that the staff teaching CDL may change as most classroom teachers will pivot to Hybrid in-person instruction. If you want to change your preference of Hybrid or CDL, please call us.

Thank you for your continued patience as we work toward this exciting time. It is our hope that by letting you know this schedule now, more than a month in advance, we all will have time to complete our preparations and make necessary plans.

Watch for continued communication from us as we move closer to bringing our students back into the classroom.

¡Se ha establecido un calendario tentativo! Los estudiantes de Bethel en todos los grados serán bienvenidos nuevamente a la escuela con instrucción híbrida.

  • Los estudiantes de kindergarten deben comenzar la instrucción híbrida en persona el lunes 15 de marzo
  • Los grados 1 y 2 regresarán con Hybrid el 29 de marzo (justo después de las vacaciones de primavera)
  • Los grados 3-12 regresarán con Hybrid el 5 de abril
  • Haga clic aquí para ver una línea de tiempo completa de reapertura
  • El cronograma sigue siendo tentativo dependiendo de una reintroducción segura a la escuela para nuestros estudiantes más jóvenes y una mejora continua en la cantidad de casos de COVID en nuestra área

El inicio del horario híbrido de la escuela secundaria también coincide con el inicio de un nuevo período en la escuela secundaria Willamette. Y, el horario tentativo para todos los grados (especialmente 9-12) es posible ahora que el condado de Lane se ha reducido a la zona de alto riesgo (desde la zona extrema).

El Aprendizaje Integral a Distancia (CDL) continuará para aquellos estudiantes que indicaron una preferencia por permanecer completamente en línea. Sin embargo, existe la posibilidad de que el personal que enseña CDL cambie, ya que la mayoría de los maestros de aula pasarán a la instrucción híbrida en persona. Si desea cambiar su preferencia de híbrido o CDL, comuníquese con nosotros en la escuela.

Gracias por su paciencia continua mientras trabajamos hacia este momento emocionante. Esperamos que al informarles este programa ahora, con más de un mes de anticipación, todos tengamos tiempo para completar nuestros preparativos y hacer los planes necesarios.

Esté atento a nuestra comunicación continua a medida que nos acercamos a traer a nuestros estudiantes de regreso al salón de clases.

Football

High School Sports Given The Go-Ahead 

The Bethel, Eugene and Springfield school districts have collaboratively agreed to permit high school football to begin next week. Volleyball teams also are expected to be able to play if local COVID rates continue to improve. Traditional spring sports are tentatively scheduled to begin in April and winter sports in May.

The Oregon Health Authority recently revised its guidance for outdoor sports, permitting high school teams to begin practice and competition providing that health and safety protocols are put in place. Because Lane County is in the COVID Extreme Risk category, the protocols include on-site COVID testing, developed plans for contact tracing, isolation and quarantining, a waiver identifying health and safety risks, and no spectators being allowed.

Willamette High School will join three schools from Eugene 4J and two from Springfield for an abbreviated football season, with varsity games tentatively scheduled to begin March 5. Teams have long been safely engaging in conditioning and training activities in preparation for high school sports.

School districts in extreme risk counties may participate in full-contact sports only if they are providing limited in-person instruction and are moving toward a return to on-site learning in a Hybrid model sometime this school year.

Willamette High School has already been providing limited in-person academic instruction, and the start of high school sports is one more way to keep students connected and engaged in school.

While the overall success of high school sports this year is dependent upon everyone doing their part to limit the transmission of COVID-19 in our community, starting a new athletic season supports students’ mental, emotional, and physical health.
