Gresham-Barlow School District cancels school week of September 14-18


Schools closed due to air quality, regional wildfires


Due to hazardous air quality and the threat of looming wildfires in the area, there will be no school in the Gresham-Barlow School District the week of September 14-18.

The first day of school will now take place on Monday, September 21.


Device Distribution
Device distribution was delayed this past week due to the air quality. It will be rescheduled for next week to allow devices to be picked up prior to the start of school.

Students who attend Dexter McCarty Middle School or Clear Creek Middle School should pick up a device from their school on either September 17 or September 18. Device distribution takes place from 11 am to 6 pm each day.

Families of students who still need a device and attend one of the district’s other schools are asked to call their child's school beginning September 17 to make arrangements to pick up a device.  The school secretaries will work with families to set a pick-up time.


Meals Program begins September 14
