It has been an exciting couple of weeks watching the Atlanta Braves play in the World Series! I hope it has brought some excitement to your family as it has to mine!
We are still looking for parent volunteers to assist with classroom activities as well as cafeteria supervision. If you are interested, please contact Billy Gibson in the Parent Center at 678-226-7996.
Thank you and enjoy your weekend!
Gwinnett Schools Closed on Friday, November 5th
Gwinnett County Public Schools joins the rest of Atlanta and Georgia in congratulating the Atlanta Braves on winning this year’s World Series. In celebration of our hometown team, Gwinnett County Public Schools is joining surrounding school districts in closing schools on Friday, November 5. We know that many of our students, families, and staff are planning to take part in this historic celebration and we foresee that special events on Friday could have a major impact on school district operations and attendance. Again, Friday will be a student holiday in Gwinnett County Public Schools. This will not be a digital learning day and there are no plans to make up this school day. In addition, all staff-- with the exception of 12-month employees-- will not report to work on Friday.
While we know this unplanned day off will be an inconvenience for some of our families, this decision was necessary to address the anticipated high absenteeism rates among students and staff.
This is an exciting time for Atlanta. We know that none of our students (and some of our staff) were not alive the last time the Atlanta Braves won a World Series. Enjoy this historic moment! Go Braves!
