Dear GHS Families,

Last night several students from Gresham High School contacted administration about a planned walk-out to take place today at 1:40 p.m.  Today, administrators, campus security, and our school resource officer met with some of those students to discuss their plans, and ensure that they would be safe, while also sharing their message in a responsible manner.  
Gresham High School and the Gresham-Barlow School District did not condone, nor sponsor this event. We worked with the Gresham Police Department, and school officials monitored the students when they walked out of class at approximately 1:40 p.m. The students walked over to Gresham city hall, and after a brief rally, returned to school.
Gresham High School continues to emphasize that the rights, opinions, and viewpoints of all students and staff are valued, and we are committed to those core beliefs.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call us on Monday. We can be reached at 503-674-5500.
Thank you, 
M. Schaefer
Principal, Gresham High School

Estimadas Familias de GHS,

Ayer por la noche, varios estudiantes de la Escuela Preparatoria Gresham contactaron a la administración acerca de una caminata planeada que se llevo a cabo hoy a la 1:40 pm Hoy, los administradores, la seguridad del campus y nuestro oficial de recursos escolares se reunieron con algunos de esos estudiantes para discutir sus planes y asegurar que estarían a salvo, mientras que también comparten su mensaje de una manera responsable.
La Preparatoria de Gresham y el Distrito Escolar Gresham-Barlow no aprobaron ni patrocinaron este evento. Trabajamos con el Departamento de Policía de Gresham y los funcionarios de la escuela supervisaron a los estudiantes cuando salieron de la clase aproximadamente a la 1:40 pm, los estudiantes se acercaron a la ciudad de Gresham y después de una breve reunión regresaron a la escuela.
La Preparatoria de Gresham continúa enfatizando que los derechos, las opiniones y los puntos de vista de todos los estudiantes y el personal son valorados, y estamos comprometidos con esas creencias básicas.
Si tiene alguna pregunta o inquietud, no dude en llamarnos el lunes. Se puede comunicar con nosotros al 503-674-5500.

Gresham High School Principal
