Emergency Closure: Week of September 14-18


    Dear GBSD Families,


    Due to hazardous air quality and the threat of looming wildfires in the area, there will be no school in the Gresham-Barlow School District the week of September 14-18. 

    The first day of school will now take place on Monday, September 21.


    Device Distribution

    Device distribution was delayed last week due to the air quality. It will be rescheduled for next week to allow devices to be picked up prior to the start of school.

    Students who attend Dexter McCarty Middle School or Clear Creek Middle School should pick up a device from their school on either September 17 or September 18. Device distribution takes place from 11 am to 6 pm each day. 

    If your student attends one of the district’s other schools, and you were not able to pick up a device, please call your student’s school beginning on September 17 to make arrangements to pick up a device.  The school secretaries will work with you to set a pick-up time.


    Meals Program begins September 14

    The District’s Meals Program will be operating during next week’s school closure. You can learn about the sites where you can pick up meals, as well as the routes buses will take to deliver meals to neighborhoods by visiting this webpage.


    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Gresham-Barlow School District through our Let’s Talk Online Listening System for a prompt response.


    Our thoughts are with the families in our community impacted by the devastating wildfires in our region.
