Winter Break December 19-January 2.  Students return Tuesday, January 3.
Schools closed Thursday, December 8 due to inclement weather.
Afternoon and evening activities canceled.

Typically the Gresham-Barlow School District decides whether to close school early in the morning. We are making this decision the night before because of the predicted timing of the storm.
 
Forecasts for December 8, 2016, show that significant snow should arrive by 10 a.m. and the snow will be followed by freezing rain and sleet.
 
While the roads may seem fine early in the morning tomorrow, we took into account that if an unusually strong storm hits later in the morning (as forecasted) it would be extremely challenging to get students and staff home in potentially dangerous conditions.
 
We hope that making this decision now will provide families with more time to make childcare arrangements.
 
While this decision will not be universally popular, we believe it is best to err on the side of caution. We made this decision tonight in the interest of keeping our students and staff safe.
