Title I Friday Parent Newsletter - 1/22/21
On Monday, January 25, Gwinnett County Public Schools will resume in-person instruction for students whose families selected that option.
Families should note that Tuesday, January 26, is a scheduled Digital Learning Day (DLD) for all students. This is the first of four at-home asynchronous learning days this semester that will provide additional planning time for teachers. (Note that students will access lessons in eCLASS but will not have virtual class time with their teachers on these scheduled DLDs.) On Tuesday, meals will be available for curbside pick-up at schools, and, the district will deliver meals along all bus routes countywide. Families should expect buses to run their routes from approximately 10:45 a.m. to noon, beginning at the first stops on the route.
Again, in-person instruction will start again on Monday, January 25, and will be followed by a scheduled digital learning day on Tuesday, January 26. Following this districtwide digital learning day, students will return to their selected instructional preference (in-person or digital) for the remainder of the week.
AKS at Home
The AKS at Home webpage has been updated with the dates and times of the Zoom sessions. All Zoom sessions will have a Spanish Interpreter. To enhance a secure online environment for our families, each session will require registration using the Zoom meeting link. Last semester we had more than 4,000 users logged into the live Zoom sessions.
As part of Gwinnett County Public Schools’ family engagement initiative, our AKS at Home project provides Math and Literacy support, for grades K-5, to families so that they truly are partners in their children’s learning. Scheduled Zoom Meetings are available for you to attend so you may quickly learn how you can help your child in Math and Literacy. All meetings are recorded and tools are posted in case you can't make the live session. This support is available for families to access in the format that fits them and their schedule best.
We invite our families to take advantage of AKS at Home to gain access to scheduled virtual meetings or recorded sessions to best fit your schedule, and to the parent tip sheets (in English y en Español).
