    COVID LOA Information  

    Dear TeamGBSD Staff,

    I hope all is well with you as we continue to navigate through these unprecedented times.  As always, we appreciate your dedication and hard work that we know it takes to educate our students in the current comprehensive distance learning model.  We have been receiving a number of questions regarding available leaves and we do realize that the rules may seem confusing.  We thought it might be helpful to send you a quick summary of the two most common types of leave requests we are receiving and when/how you would qualify for them.  Please feel free to reach out to Noelle Thelen, thelen@gresham.k12.or.us, should you have questions and she will be happy to assist you.
    We continually monitor the orders from Governor Brown and know that she continues to analyze the metrics for students returning to in-person instruction. Next week, the district will be sending out an updated version of the survey you previously filled out in the spring regarding your availability to return to work when students do return to in-building instruction in some fashion.  Please be sure to complete it as the information will be important for us to have as we continue to plan for our eventual return to buildings.  You will be given time during the day to complete the survey.  Take care and be well!
    James Hiu
