Hi Shasta Families,
Bethel School District has completed the initial testing of drinking water at Shasta. This is in response to concerns raised around the country about the possibility of lead in school drinking water.

Initial results are in and elevated lead levels have been indicated in three locations out of 58 in our school. They are: Studio West, room 39, and a cafeteria fountain.

The three water sources will be retested to confirm that the lead source is in the fixture rather than the interior plumbing. In accordance with EPA guidelines, the follow-up tests (again conducted by an independent professional environmental service, PBS Engineering + Environmental) will consist of water samples taken immediately after a five minute flush of the pipes which feed the sites in question.

The most likely source of lead in drinking water is from the fittings in old fixtures, which will be replaced immediately. To address the cause and ensure safe drinking water for students and staff, we will:

  • Prevent immediate access to the water sources in question
  • Eliminate the source of the lead by replacing the fixtures
  • Notify Shasta families, students and staff of further results and any updates

The health and safety of our students and staff remain our #1 priority. Although there are currently no federal or state requirements that schools test their water, and the state has not offered to provide financial assistance to school districts conducting the water tests, Bethel School District has proactively conducted these tests to determine the safety of its drinking water.

The EPA has more information about lead in drinking water: www.epa.gov/lead/learn-about-lead.

Enjoy the rest of your summer and I look forward to seeing everyone again soon.
Brady Cottle
Shasta Principal

Middle-School-to-High-School-Making-the-Transition-334x500Dear 8th Grade Families,

Willamette High School is hosting a week-long summer camp—the Willamette Prep Academy (WPA)—to ease the transition from middle to high school. This is a great opportunity you won’t want to miss because we know that transitioning from middle to high school can be hard. There is more of everything: classes, sports, activities, freedoms, and decisions. The Willamette Prep Academy is an opportunity to meet other incoming 9th graders as well as upperclassmen, get to know Willamette teachers, learn sound decision making skills, and participate in fun team building activities while getting acquainted with Willamette’s campus. After attending camp for one week, as an incoming 9th grader you will feel confident and comfortable when you arrive at Willamette on your first day of school.

There are two Academy options:

  • August 8th-12th, or
  • August 22nd-26th

Please click here and complete the attached Google Form indicating your preferred date. Alternatively, you can call the school and let the office staff know (541.461.6401 extension 0).

A few reminders:

  • Space is limited
  • This year the Willamette Prep Academy is offered to you at no cost
  • Students will receive breakfast, lunch, and snacks, at no cost, each day
  • The Academy runs from 9:00am-3:00pm

Estimadas familias de 8.o grado:

Willamette High School está organizando un campamento de verano de una semana —la Academia de Preparación Willamette (WPA)— para facilitar la transición de la secundaria a la preparatoria. Esta es una gran oportunidad que no querrá perder, pues sabemos que hacer la transición de la secundaria a la preparatoria puede ser difícil. Hay más de todo: clases, deportes, actividades, libertades, y decisiones. La Academia de Preparación Willamette es una oportunidad para conocer a otros nuevos estudiantes de 9.o grado al igual que a estudiantes más avanzados, conocer a los maestros de Willamette, aprender destrezas sólidas de toma de decisiones, y participar en el equipo de diversión diseñando actividades mientras se conoce el campus de Willamette. Luego de asistir al campamento durante una semana, se sentirá cómodo y seguro como nuevo estudiante de 9.º grado cuando llegue a Willamette en su primer día de clases.

Existen dos opciones académicas:

  • 8-12 de agosto, o
  • 22-26 de agosto

Por favor haga clic aquí y complete el formulario adjunto de Google indicando su fecha de preferencia. De forma alternativa, usted puede llamar a escuela y avisarle al personal de la oficina (541.461.6401 extensión 0).
