Winter Weather is Here

February 01, 2009

Emergencies such as snow, ice, thawing roads, power outages and other weather problems can alter school schedules and affect bus transportation for students, whether the situation involves a late-morning or an early dismissal.  Early dismissals due to power outages, snow, etc, will occur only if a delay in dismissal significantly increases hazards.  In the event an early dismissal is required, it is important that you have a plan for your child(ren). Radio and TV stations will broadcast information regarding the operation of Bethel Schools during inclement weather.  Since conditions vary from one school district to another, it is very important that you listen for information that is specifically about the Bethel School District #403. This information will also be available on the district website and on our district’s emergency hotline, 253-683-6001.  The following is a list of TV and radio stations which plan to broadcast school closures and delays: TV Stations KOMO 4 - KING 5 - KONG 6/16 - KIRO 7 - KCPQ 13 AM Stations KCIS 630 - KIRO 710 - KIXI 880 - KOMO 1000 - KYCW 1090 - KLAY 1180 - KITZ 1400 FM Stations KPLU 88.5 - KVTI 90.9 - KLSY 92.5 - KUBE 93.3 - KMPS 94.1 - KIRO 97.3 - KAYO 99.3 - KMTT 103.7 - KCMS 105.3 - KRWM 106.9 If Bethel is not announced during a newscast, it means schools are open and running on regular schedules. If Bethel is announced during the newscast, then one of the following situations exists: Schools Closed:  All schools will be closed for one day only.
