Principal's Message

Good Afternoon Bethany Parents,

I hope this message finds you and your family well.  We have missed you terribly over these past nine weeks and applaud you for all you’ve done to manage work, family life, and school activities.  As our year comes to a close, we are preparing for the return of school materials and Chromebooks, as well as the distribution of items students had in classrooms.  Please carefully review the following information to ensure a safe and productive exchange. We need everyone’s support to make this work. 

Items that need to be returned include:

  1. Chromebook (K-8)
  2. Chromebook charger (K-8);

Logistics

Family members pull up to the front of the school using the drop off lane.  Staff members will be waiting to collect materials from families.  Family members will stay in the car to maintain social distancing.  You will provide the staff member with your child’s name and their teacher’s name, and a staff member will bring you a bag containing your child’s items and collect school property back from you in one of the following two ways:

  1. Hand materials through the car window.
  2. Allow Bethany staff access to the trunk area of the car to collect materials.

It is important that all materials are collected during the scheduled collection week.  Please contact the school office at (209) 836-7250 if you are not available at your scheduled time. 

Again, thank you for your support and for all you’ve done over the last weeks to support your child’s education. 

Warm regards,

Debbie Wingo
