Prepare for a Productive Parent/Teacher ConferenceWhether you meet online or in person, having a conference with the teacher is an important way to help your child learn. Before your conference, talk with your child about subjects he/she likes best and least and why. Ask if he has any concerns. To make sure you and the teacher discuss these and other things that matter most, make a list. Include changes at home and questions about your child's progress and how you can help.
AKS at Home
As part of Gwinnett County Public Schools’ family engagement initiative, the school district seeks to empower parents with tools that allow them to help their children at home. Our AKS at Home project provides math and language arts resources, for grades K-5, to support families so that they truly are partners in their children’s learning. This support is available for families to access in the format that fits them and their schedule best. They can attend live virtual meetings (new future dates coming soon), view recorded information at a time that best fits their schedule, or gain tips and suggestions on how to best help their students through tip sheets on a wide variety of topics.
We invite our families to click on the link below to gain access to the recorded sessions and to the parent tip sheets. If you have any questions, please contact Vicki Diaz (Shiloh ES Parent Outreach Liaison) @ 770-736-2129

School Nutrition Information
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) granted additional waiver extensions that allow school districts to offer meals at no charge through December 31 through the Seamless Summer Option (SSO). This extension, paired with guidance received from the Georgia Department of Education, will allow Gwinnett County Public Schools to offer meals at no charge at school sites to all students. These meals are provided at no cost to the individual through the federal School Nutrition Program.
Students Attending School In-Person
Those attending school in-person will receive meals free-of-charge during their school’s scheduled meal times.
Curbside Pick-up for Digital Learners
Digital learners may pick up meals, Monday through Friday, between 11 a.m. and 12 p.m in the drive-through line going through the front of the school. Each day’s pick-up includes both breakfast and lunch. Individuals will not be allowed to enter the school to pick up or eat meals.
Gwinnett County Public Schools encourages families who are eligible for the Free & Reduced Meal Program to complete the annual application to ensure meal benefits continue when this waiver expires on 12/31/20. Free & Reduced meal application
