Resuming In-Person Instruction: GBSD continues to prepare and monitor the school health safety metrics
The Gresham-Barlow School District continues to prepare for resuming in-person instruction and monitoring the school health safety metrics. The latest school health safety metrics show that case and positivity rates are rising in our region.
While Governor Brown announced on December 23 that beginning January 1, school health safety metrics for returning to in-person instruction would become advisory rather than mandatory, she also directed districts to work in close consultation with their local public health authority in understanding and considering the metrics. The Gresham-Barlow School District is consulting with the Multnomah County Health Department as we work through this process.
On January 19 the Oregon Department of Education intends to release updated guidelines for schools. Once those guidelines have been released, we will inform the school board on how the changes will affect our work to resume in-person instruction. It is our goal to provide another update to staff and families after the January 21 school board work session.
Questions? We encourage you to submit them to our online listening system “Let’s Talk” for a prompt response.
Reminder for parents of secondary students
The semester is coming to a close. It’s important that students who have fallen behind or have struggled to achieve passing grades contact a counselor, principal, or teachers to work on a plan for earning that credit. GBSD school staff members are here to support our students!
