  • Parent Requests For IN-DISTRICT Transfers

    Accepted March 1-31, 2023  *  Deadline is March 31, 2023

    The Gresham-Barlow School District will accept in-district transfer requests for the 2023-2024 school year during the month of March only. 

    If you live within the Gresham-Barlow district and want your child to attend a Gresham-Barlow school outside of your attendance area, you need to request an in-district transfer. If your student currently has an in-district transfer and is moving from elementary to middle or middle to high, please submit a new request.

    A digital transfer request form will be available on the Transfers section of the district website http://gresham.k12.or.us/Page/2249. The link to this form can also be emailed to you directly if you request it from any GBSD school or district office. Forms must be submitted by March 31, 2023.                                                                             

    You will be notified in writing after review of all requests. Please note: kindergarten and first grade requests may not be decided upon until late summer after more registrations have been received. For further information, contact the Gresham-Barlow School District Office at 503-261-4575.

  • School Immunization Rates Report

    The State of Oregon requires schools to notify parents of their immunization rates for each required vaccine.  These rates will be posted on our school’s website, in our school office, and sent home to parents.  The rates attached are the exemption rates as of the February exclusion date, which is always the third Wednesday of that month.  Schools are required to publish this information twice each school year.  These rates will be posted within thirty days of the February exclusion date.  The same information will be shared again during the first month of school next school year.  Again, these rates are collected and tallied each February.

    Informe de índice de vacunación escolar

     El estado de Oregón requiere que las escuelas notifiquen a los padres las tasas de vacunación para cada vacuna requerida. Estas tasas se publicarán en el sitio web de nuestra escuela, en la oficina de nuestra escuela y se enviarán a los padres. Las tasas adjuntas son las tasas de exención a partir de la fecha de exclusión de febrero, que es siempre el tercer miércoles de ese mes. Las escuelas deben publicar esta información dos veces cada año escolar. Estas tasas se publicarán dentro de los treinta días a partir de la fecha de exclusión de febrero. La misma información se compartirá nuevamente durante el primer mes de clases el próximo año escolar. Una vez más, estas tasas se obtienen y se contabilizan cada mes de febrero.

  • 2022-23 Meal Prices

    Dear Parent/Guardian,

    Kelly Creek Elementary qualifies for free breakfast and lunch for all students under the USDA Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).  If you only have children attending CEP schools, you should not apply for Free and Reduced-Price Meals (FARMS).  If you have at least one child at a school that is not CEP, please submit an application for FARMS.  See the  District webpage for more information. 

    AT ALL SCHOOLS, a la carte purchases have a cost to the family and must be pre-paid by account or in cash.  This account is accessed when getting a meal using the student ID number, which is also the child's PIN.  Money may be added to the account by sending cash or check with your student to the cafeteria in the morning.  Checks should be made out to Gresham-Barlow Nutrition Services.  You may also add money by credit card using mymealtime.com.  MealTime charges a small transaction fee for online payments.
