    Device Distribution

     

    Dear GBSD Families, 

     

    The Gresham-Barlow School District will begin the school year with online instruction only. Each Gresham-Barlow student will participate in eGBSD, the District’s comprehensive distance learning program taught by our GBSD teachers.

    To ensure that each student can participate in online instruction, as well as have access to online resources and assignments, the District will loan a device to each student. 

    We will distribute devices in early September. The devices must be returned by June 10, 2021 or upon leaving the district, whichever comes first. 

     Student ID numbers required to pick up Device(s)

    You will need the student ID number for each student in your family in order to check out a device. The student ID number is also your student’s lunch number and is listed on report cards. If you do not have the number, please log into ParentVUE or review your student’s last report card. 

     You can check out devices at one of four locations. For your convenience, each location will be open from 10 am to 5 pm each day.

     

    Pickup Dates:

     Note: These dates are for all students in all schools EXCEPT Dexter McCarty Middle School and Clear Creek Middle School. See below for more information.

     

    If your oldest student is in high school pickup device(s) on either Tuesday, September 1, or Wednesday, September 2.  

    If your oldest student is in middle school pickup device(s) on either Wednesday, September 2 or Thursday, September 3.

Your siblings who attend a different school will have to check out their device at another school.

    Note:

    Students new to the district need to be enrolled by August 26 in order to check out a device during the district-wide device distribution schedule. Any students enrolled after August 26 will need to make arrangements through their school to check out a device at a later date. 

    We encourage families to come throughout the day to help us maintain safe social distancing during check out. Our process will allow you to check out devices without leaving your car. We ask that you remain in your car.

    If you do not have a vehicle and need to walk to the site, we will provide a walk-up option that will require families maintain safe social distancing while waiting.

    We ask for your patience as we complete the device check out process with each family.

    Questions? Please call: 503-258-4733.

    Sincerely,
    Gresham-Barlow School District
