Directions
Parent-Teacher Conferences
Parent Teacher Conferences will be taking place on the evening of Tuesday November 25th from 4:30-8:30 pm and the morning of Wednesday November 26th from 7:30-11:30 pm. This is a great opportunity to meet with your student's teachers to discuss their progress in class as well as getting to know the people who work with your student. Report cards will be located in our cafeteria, and teachers will be located in the main gym for conferences. Workshops on the use of ParentVue, which is an application you can user to monitor student progress "real time", will be offered on Tuesday evening.  For a schedule of events, please download the: Conference Schedule.

Inclement Weather
Official “school closure”, two-hour late opening, or “snow route” information will be available on local radio and television stations as early as 6:00 a.m. If weather conditions require alternative routing you will hear that “buses will run on snow routes." If weather conditions require an early dismissal, information will be available on local radio  and television stations and on our school and district web sites prior to the dismissal. If the Gresham-Barlow School District is not mentioned, then school will operate on the normal schedule.

School Report Cards
The Oregon Department of Education produces yearly report cards for schools and districts in this state.  These report cards provide parents an opportunity to see how their local schools and districts are performing. These report cards are available on the Gresham-Barlow School District Website, to access that information select School Report Cards. If you do not have access to the internet, please stop by your school office to pick up a copy. The report cards are available in English and Spanish.

Performing Arts
Each year Band and Choir students record music to send to Oregon Music Educators Association adjudicators in the hopes of being selected for an All-State Band or Choir group. Selection into one of these groups is a very prestigious placement and an honor as a young musician. This year, Sam Barlow High School qualified 15 students for Band ensemble groups and 3 students for choir groups.  To see the list of students, select OMEA State Qualifiers.

Supporting Your Student
High school can be a challenging time for students, especially for freshmen and sophomores. For freshmen, it is all about the transition. Moving from middle school to high school is a big academic and social jump for our newest Bruins. Please be sure to ask your student each night how school is going, ask to see their planner, and follow up by using ParentVue to help monitor grades and assignments. Sophomores struggle because their second year in high school is much more challenging academically, especially as they figure out how to balance that with their social life. Having consistent conversations at home about both academics and social situations is very helpful and lets your student know you really care and are willing to be involved. Students are ultimately successful because they know adults care, are involved, and are supportive of what they are doing in school.
