Willamette High School
The names are always kept confidential, but more than half of Bethel students receive free school lunches. Your child may qualify for free lunches at school.
The Bethel lunch program is recognized for using fresh, locally grown, nutritious, and tasty food. We strongly encourage you to turn in a completed form to the school office to see if you qualify for this benefit which we are happy to provide. Breakfast is free for all students.
Parents and students,
The best thing you can do to prepare for the PSAT tomorrow is to get a good night’s sleep, eat a good breakfast, and arrive a little early tomorrow to take the test. Students need to be in their assigned room for the PSAT. Room assignments are posted in many locations around the school.
Remember to bring: a calculator (you cannot use your cell phone as a calculator) and two #2 pencils
Don’t bring: cell phone/electronics, mechanical pencils, food/drink, books and homework
For students not taking the PSAT, you will have a regular “B” schedule of classes for the day.
The protection and safe-keeping of all students is our #1 priority. That is why all Willamette staff will take part in school safety training on October 10th, a no-school day for educator training.
This workshop will make sure our staff members have a shared understanding of how to respond in emergency situations, especially a worst-case scenario of an armed intruder on campus. It is sad that there is a need to adequately prepare our staff for such a remote possibility, but we believe it is better to train for a worst-case scenario and never use that training than to sit back and just hope a life-threatening event never happens.
Every school in our district already practices fire drills, lockdowns, and earthquake drills. This training will add to our staff’s abilities to respond in extreme emergencies in order to keep students safe. Contact me at email@example.com or 541-689-0731 if you have any questions.
The new construction has limited our parking and traffic flow options. We acknowledge this is a huge inconvenience that is likely to get worse before it gets better.
Driving in the bus lane is both a safety issue and it causes the buses to be late for their next student pick ups.
Parents please do not drive in the bus lane before or after school for pick up and drop off.
Thank you for your patience as we bear with this temporary inconvenience.
On October 15 ALL sophomores will be taking the PSAT from 8:00- 11:30.
Juniors are advised to take the PSAT as well. Juniors need to sign up to take the PSAT on October 15. Juniors will sign up at the bookkeeper’s office by Monday, October 13.
Juniors should take the PSAT for two reasons- it is great practice for the SAT and how one qualifies for the National Merit Scholarship nomination.
Here are resources to help your student prepare for the PSAT. Qualifying scores on the PSAT meet the essential skills requirements for graduation.
There are many good reasons to prepare and take the PSAT!
