Distance Learning

  • The Gresham-Barlow School District will be providing instruction online only through at least mid-October. The first day of instruction for the 2020-2021 school year is September 14, 2020. The closure is an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and keep our community safe and healthy. The closure of our school buildings does not mean an end to learning. The school district will continue to serve families and provide meaningful learning experiences for students in an online environment.
