Car Rider Lane Update!

As the school year progresses, our car rider lanes drop off/pick up have seen improvement. Thank you so much for continuing to follow the direction of our staff members.

Another reminder is that students may only be dropped off/picked up at the blacktop at the back of the school. We do continue to have students being dropped off in the front lanes when cars and buses are present. This is a real safety issue. Also, please do not pass another car in the car rider lane as this is a safety issue too.

Finally, please do not drop off students prior to 8:15 am unless they are Biology students in Mr. O'Connor's class.

We appreciate your support!


On November 3, 2015, Gwinnett County voters will be asked to extend the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax for Education (E-SPLOST). Over the years, E-SPLOST has funded educational capital projects that have benefited all students in Gwinnett County. It is important for Gwinnett citizens to be aware of the E_SPLOST and the school district's plan for meetig the classroom and technology needs of Gwinnett's growing student enrollment.
