In the interest of student safety Bethel School District will be closed again Wednesday, December 11. All afternoon and evening activities are cancelled and will be rescheduled.
Most neighborhood streets are still packed with snow and ice. Bethel drivers took buses on the streets Tuesday and confirmed that buses could not operate safely on neighborhood roads, even at very slow speeds.
A little bit of melting has occurred, but refreezing overnight is likely to make the roads even slicker. Overall road conditions are not expected to improve much, if at all, by Wednesday morning and student safety remains the #1 concern, so school has been cancelled.
We will continue to monitor road conditions closely in the hope that we can resume school soon.
Many parents and students have asked if the snow days this week mean that we will need to add school days later in the year. Bethel has more than two days built into its school year schedule for this type of situation.
However, having not yet even reached the first day of winter we will need to wait to determine how many snow days are used before make-up days are scheduled. All families and students will be notified well in advance should days be added back to the calendar.
Thank you for your patience as we seek to make the best decisions for Bethel students.
