The Parsons Happenings
August 11, 2020
WE ARE PARSONS STRONG AND READY!
We are so excited for the First Day of School!
IF we encounter technical issues tomorrow, we ask for your continued patience as the district trouble shoots the issues. Your child's teacher will be communicating via email regarding any updates and further directions to access Zoom links. We ask that you communicate directly with your child's teacher using the contact information shared during Open House. For those students who are under the care of another adult during the day, please share any updates with the child care provider. Thank you again for your continued support during this time.
One of my favorite things is to begin the day together. Be sure to visit Parsons' eClass landing page at 8:50 am each day for the morning announcements.
Have a great first day! I am so proud to be your Principal!
Return to School Parent Preference Survey
Parents completed the Gwinnett County Public Schools' Return to School Parent Survey at the beginning of July. The district recently mailed out parent letters stating parent preference from the July survey. Well, circumstances change and we would like to get the most up to date parent preference for each student at Parsons. Please complete the Google Form attached for each of your children who attend Parsons by Wednesday, August 19th. We will use this updated information to support the recent phase in plan for returning in person.
Curbside pickup procedures SY20/21
Students and their parents or guardians may pick up breakfast and lunch meals at any school within their cluster. We will use ID cards with our scanners to charge student accounts. Meals are not free unless the student is participating in the Gwinnett County Public Schools Free and Reduced Priced Meal Plan. The application for free or reduced meals must be completed every school year. To access the application go to http://gwinnett.schoollunchstatus.com .
Students will not be able to charge meals at this time. Please use MyPaymentsPlus to add money to student accounts.
We will offer curbside pickup in front of the school from 11:15am to 1:15pm, Monday through Thursday. Thursday students will have the option to take breakfast and/or lunch meals for Friday. Breakfast and lunch will be offered at the same time.
We have a two-week rotating menu. We will offer two vegetables and one fruit with each entrée.
Menu for the Week of August 10:
Monday: Asian Chicken bites
Wednesday: Chicken nuggets
Menu for the Week of August 17:
Monday: Corn dogs
Tuesday: Chicken Dill bites
Wednesday: Chicken sandwich
August 24th we will return to the Week 1 menu and will continue to rotate the menu there after.
