School Health and Safety Metrics must be met for in-person instruction to resume
Wondering when in-person instruction will resume? The decision on when to resume in-person instruction is not up to the Gresham-Barlow School District or other school districts. We must follow mandates set forth by the Oregon Department of Education (ODE), the governor's office, and state and local health authorities. There is a set of school health and safety metrics that must be met before in-person instruction can resume. You can view the metrics on the District’s Schools Reopening Dashboard. Please know that the school district is diligently planning for the return of students to our buildings so that we are ready when metrics show it is safe to do so! Due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in our region, online instruction will continue through at least mid-January. For more details, view our November 20 Update for Families.

Information on Virtual Town Hall
Free meals for students: Available at specific school sites and delivered to neighborhoods!
Families in the Gresham-Barlow school District with children up to age 18 are once again eligible to receive FREE breakfast, lunch and dinner for each child daily. Youth are able to participate in this meal service once per weekday at a bus delivery stop or curbside pickup site in their local area. We also hand out meals on Fridays to cover the weekend meals for the students.

The school district, in continued partnership with Sodexo Nutrition Services and First Student Bus Company, are committed to providing food for the youth of GBSD. On average, 5,000 meals are served per day.

The breakfast, lunch and dinner service is being provided under new, short-term waivers issued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Curbside pickup meal sites operate at nine school sites: Gresham High, Clear Creek, Gordon Russell, East Gresham, North Gresham, Hall, Highland, Hollydale and Hogan Cedars from 11:30 am-1:00 pm Monday – Friday.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
