School Immunization Rates Report
The State of Oregon requires schools to notify parents of their immunization rates for each required vaccine. These rates will be posted on our school’s website, in our school office, and sent home to parents. The rates attached are the exemption rates as of the February exclusion date, which is always the third Wednesday of that month. Schools are required to publish this information twice each school year. These rates will be posted within thirty days of the February exclusion date. The same information will be shared again during the first month of school next school year. Again, these rates are collected and tallied each February.
Informe de índice de vacunación escolar
El estado de Oregón requiere que las escuelas notifiquen a los padres las tasas de vacunación para cada vacuna requerida. Estas tasas se publicarán en el sitio web de nuestra escuela, en la oficina de nuestra escuela y se enviarán a los padres. Las tasas adjuntas son las tasas de exención a partir de la fecha de exclusión de febrero, que es siempre el tercer miércoles de ese mes. Las escuelas deben publicar esta información dos veces cada año escolar. Estas tasas se publicarán dentro de los treinta días a partir de la fecha de exclusión de febrero. La misma información se compartirá nuevamente durante el primer mes de clases el próximo año escolar. Una vez más, estas tasas se obtienen y se contabilizan cada mes de febrero.

New for 2022-23
Kelly Creek Elementary School and the Gresham-Barlow School District uses ParentSquare for District and School communication. An account is automatically generated for each parent/guardian, using the contact information in Synergy, so you can get important, urgent, and emergency communications.
We encourage families to access their ParentSquare accounts so they can download the ParentSquare mobile app and update their preferences.
To learn more about what ParentSquare can do for you and to download the ParentSquare app, click here to visit the Parent Resources section of the District website.
2022-23 Meal Prices
Kelly Creek Elementary qualifies for free breakfast and lunch for all students under the USDA Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). If you only have children attending CEP schools, you should not apply for Free and Reduced-Price Meals (FARMS). If you have at least one child at a school that is not CEP, please submit an application for FARMS. See the District webpage for more information.
AT ALL SCHOOLS, a la carte purchases have a cost to the family and must be pre-paid by account or in cash. This account is accessed when getting a meal using the student ID number, which is also the child's PIN. Money may be added to the account by sending cash or check with your student to the cafeteria in the morning. Checks should be made out to Gresham-Barlow Nutrition Services. You may also add money by credit card using mymealtime.com. MealTime charges a small transaction fee for online payments.
