The Gresham-Barlow School District sent a message to families warning of possible shifts to distance learning due to staff requesting leave because of illness.

The district said officials are in constant conversation with principals and supervisors to determine what staffing adjustments need to be made to maintain in-person learning.

However, the district also urges families to have a contingency plan for their students in case their school or class moves to distance learning.

The district will attempt to notify families the night before if a classroom or school transitions to online learning.

This message comes as five campuses in the Portland Public Schools district closed in-person learning, while the entire Parkrose School District closed Monday, Jan. 10, because of staffing shortages.
