Dear GBSD Community,
At the March 4 school board meeting, the school district provided an update on the COVID-19 case rates in our region. Those case rates allow the school district to resume in-person instruction through a Hybrid Model.
At the meeting, district staff presented a school calendar that would allow the district to implement a hybrid model at all grade levels. The school board approved the calendar.
Here is the implementation timeline for the hybrid learning model:
- Kg - 1st grade students: April 1-Cohort B, April 5-Cohort A
- 2nd - 5th grade students: April 8-Cohort B, April 12-Cohort A
- 6 - 12th grade students: April 19-Cohort A, April 22 Cohort B
Schools will share more details with families about the hybrid model schedule at each level including times and cohort details as well as the protocols that will be in place to maintain a safe and healthy learning environment for our students and families.
The Gresham-Barlow School District is looking forward to welcoming students back to our school buildings. We also will continue to provide a quality education in an online setting for those families who choose to remain in comprehensive distance learning.
Thank you for your continued patience, understanding, and support as we navigate these challenging and complex times.
Gresham-Barlow School District
