Week #1 in Wolverine Nation!

The Senior Class of 2022 celebrated the end of the first full week of school with an amazing Senior Sunrise event.  Students gathered in Wolverine Stadium for a sunrise celebration filled with music, donuts, and prizes. It was the perfect way to launch their senior year in style!

There has been much to celebrate all around our campus this week! Willamette High School had classrooms full of learning and laughter, opportunities to meet new friends, and welcoming staff who were so excited to have students back in the building. It is indeed great to be a Wolverine!

Student Devices – Students are expected to bring a laptop, Chromebook, or comparable personal device to classes, and many were distributed during Welcome Back Day. Cell phones are not used during class time and should be away and silent. Willamette has a Chromebook available for every student, so please contact the Media Center or Front Office if your student still needs a device.

Health and Safety information was recently emailed to all (English and Spanish), and Bethel has added a district Q&A to help with common questions. Here are a few key notes. 

  • Vaccination and proper mask use are the top preventative measures against COVID, and their use will allow more students to safely and fully attend school.
  • Masks are required to attend in-person school at all indoor locations, regardless of vaccination status.
  • Outdoor activities will not require students to use masks, so long as physical distancing can be maintained.
  • Keep students home who exhibit any COVID symptoms until further screening can be completed. Consult Bethel or Lane County’s COVID Resources for help.
  • Communication may happen through both phone and email, so please ensure we have current contact information to ensure timely message delivery.
  • Please review the documents above for more details.

Review the Bus Update if using school-provided transportation. 

We will continue to provide updates through this site, emails, and phone calls as the first few weeks are sure to include updates.

Thank you for being a part of Willamette and Bethel! We are excited to continue serving our community and, most importantly, our students. Go Wolverines!

Free, weekly at-home COVID-19 testing for Bethel students

We are excited to announce free COVID-19 Screening Testing for Bethel students for the 2021-22 school year! This program is completely voluntary, and made possible through our partnership with The University of Oregon (UO) and Oregon Health Authority (OHA).

Why Participate?

Routine screening testing (testing of people who do not have COVID symptoms) is a way to identify people who are infected with COVID-19 and may pass the virus to others, even though they don’t feel sick. Weekly screening tests can quickly identify people who are positive and allow them to quarantine/isolate. This helps reduce the spread of the virus and can slow down an outbreak.

How does the program work?

  • To opt in, parents/guardians need to register using the UO’s testing portal and complete the consent form (see links below).
  • Participating students receive a welcome packet, including information on how to use the simple at-home saliva test, tube labels and other supplies.
  • Weekly, students will pick up a test collection kit from their school and return it on pre-set days.
  • Samples are picked up from the school and shipped to the UO’s clinical lab in Eugene where they are processed using a highly accurate PCR test.
  • Results will be available in the secure results portal 1-2 business days after they are received by the lab. Families will get an email/text notification letting them know when to check the portal.
  • Results will also be sent to local public health officials but are not released directly to schools.
  • More FAQ’s can be found here.

Opting In Is Easy!

Sign up in 2 easy steps:

  1. Please fill out the registration survey at https://tinyurl.com/k12covidtesting
  2. Complete the electronic consent form below. 

Please note: you will receive an email from the U of O instructing you to fill out a consent form, print it off and give it to your school. Please do not do this. We converted the paper form to an electronic version form below to make it easier for families. Please only use the links below:

Prueba de COVID-19 semanal y gratuita para el hogar

¡Estamos muy contentos de anunciar la prueba de detección de COVID-19 gratis para los estudiantes de Bethel para el año escolar 2021-22! Este programa es completamente voluntario, y es posible gracias a nuestra asociación con la Universidad de Oregón (UO) y la Autoridad de Salud de Oregón (OHA).

¿Por qué participar?

Las pruebas de detección de rutina (pruebas de personas que no tienen síntomas de COVID) son una forma de identificar a las personas que están infectadas con COVID-19 y pueden transmitir el virus a otras personas, aunque no se sientan enfermas. Las pruebas de detección semanales pueden identificar rápidamente a las personas que son positivas y permitirles ponerlas en cuarentena o aislarlas. Esto ayuda a reducir la propagación del virus y puede ralentizar un brote.

¿De qué manera funciona este programa?

  • Los padres o tutores completan la exención de OHA y se registran utilizando el portal de pruebas de la UO (ver enlace a continuación).
  • Los estudiantes participantes reciben un paquete de bienvenida, que incluye información sobre cómo usar la prueba de saliva en casa, etiquetas de tubos y otros artículos.
  • Semanalmente, los estudiantes recogerán un equipo de recolección de pruebas de su escuela y lo devolverán en los días preestablecidos.
  • Las muestras se recogen de la escuela y se envían al laboratorio clínico de la UO en Eugene, donde se procesan mediante una prueba de PCR de alta precisión.
  • Los resultados estarán disponibles en el portal de resultados seguro entre 1 y 2 días hábiles después de que el laboratorio los reciba. Las familias recibirán una notificación por correo electrónico o mensaje de texto que les informará cuándo deben consultar el portal. Los resultados también se enviarán a los funcionarios de salud pública locales, pero no se entregarán directamente a las escuelas.
  • Puede encontrar más preguntas frecuentes aquí.
