Dear Parents and Guardians,
It's that time of year again!
During the first week in May, please be on the look for a "Disposal of Medication Notification Letter". If your student has medication(s) in the clinic, please pick them up by the last day of school (Wednesday, May 26, 2021). If we do not receive instructions from you before the end of the school year, we will dispose of the medication. Thank you for your cooperation.
Have a great summer, stay safe and see you next year!
The Media Center remodel is well underway. We are excited to share our new space with you featuring new shelves, desks, and carpet. Currently, the Media Center is not available for visiting but holds may be requested beginning on May 5th. The last day to check out books for the school year is Wednesday, May 12th.
The Centerville Branch of Gwinnett County Public Library is now open with an excellent selection of books to choose from. Please visit them during our closure AND throughout the summer so your student always has a great book to read. For reading activities and suggested titles, visit https://www.gcpsk12.org/domain/7809
Chromebook Device Return
If your student has a school-owned Chromebook, laptop, hot spot, charger cord, mouse, or other device, please plan to return the device to Partee ES on one of the designated dates and times listed below.
Partee Dates/Times to Return Devices
Wednesday, May 26th 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Friday, May 28th 7:30 am - 12:00 pm
As we approach the end of the 2020-21 school year, we want to communicate our plan for device return to our school. All devices checked out to students must be checked back in to the local school at the end of the 2020-21 school year so that tech teams can begin preparing the devices for summer learning activities and the coming school year.
When returning your device;
- Bring all components, including chargers and mice
- Have the device fully charged and powered on in order to expedite the return process.
- Devices will be assessed for damage upon return and fines may be assigned based on the damage in order to cover the cost of replacement parts and repairs.
- Fines can be paid by credit/debit card or cash at the time of the return.
- If a device is returned in good condition, no fine will be assigned.
Device services will be turned off and fines for replacing the device will be assigned if a device is not returned.
Device Fine Amounts
Final report cards for the 2020 – 2021 school year will be mailed, from the district office, to the home address on file.
