Meetings planned to discuss Bethel school building projects

      EUGENE, Ore. - Voters approved a $49.5 million construction bond for the Bethel School District in November 2012.

      The district is putting that money into action this year.

      This spring break, work is set to begin on $10 million construction of new offices and science classrooms at Willamette High School.

      A $26 million project to replace Fairfield and Malabon elementary schools starts in June.

      Meetings are planned this week to discuss the projects.

      The district is offering free ice cream and child care to encourage parents to come see the plans for yourself, meet the architects, learn about the security and sustainability features, and ask questions.

      The meetings are:

      • Fairfield Elementary: Tuesday, January 14, 7 p.m.
      • Malabon Elementary: Wednesday, January 15, 7 p.m.
      • Willamette High School: Thursday, January 16, 7 p.m.
