Bethel Local Schools is committed to the safety and security of our students and staff. We are also committed to clearly communicating with parents about safety issues when they arise.
This morning (Friday, Oct 16, 2020), we received a call from the Miami County Sheriff's Department that required our campus to go into a soft lockdown until the individual was located and arrested. The Sheriff's Department currently has this individual in custody and all of our students and staff have resumed classes. For all the details regarding this morning's events, read the entire Letter from Mr Firks Here
Sometimes, lockdowns can frighten students. Feel free to discuss this situation with your children and let us know if follow-up is need at school. Bethel Local Schools has counselors available to offer support to our students.
