The teachers will have the option of eating outside, in their classrooms, or in the cafeteria that day. If you do not want your child to eat a grilled hamburger or hot dog, please notify your child's teacher on or before May 8. We will have non-grilled hamburgers and hot dogs available.

Partee 2018-2019 Year Book

Yearbooks will be available in mid-May. A few extra copies have been ordered and will go on sale on a first come, first served basis. Look for more information in the weeks to come.

From the Clinic

For students with medicine in the school clinic, it is a GCPS policy that "Students are not allowed to transport medication." Therefore we need parents to stop by the clinic and pick up any unused medication by the last day of school. Medications will be disposed of by May 23, 2019.

Food Allergy in Children

When your child has a food allergy, his or her body thinks that those foods are trying to do harm. It fights back by setting off an allergic reaction. A mild reaction may include a few raised, red, itchy patches of skin (called hives). A severe reaction may cause hives all over, swelling in the throat, trouble breathing, nausea or vomiting, or fainting. This is called anaphylaxis (say "ANN-uh-fuh-LAK-suss"). It can be deadly.


A good way to prevent your child's allergic reaction is to avoid the foods that cause it. An allergy doctor or a dietitian may be able to help you understand which foods will be okay and what to avoid. Also, make sure to inform your child's teachers and caregivers about your child’s food allergies, and provide them with medication.

Lost and Found

May is the last month to check out the lost and found. The next time you're in the building, please stop by the cafeteria and look for any item your child may have left behind.

Have You Signed Up for the Parent Portal or Mypayments Plus

It's not too late and both accounts will be used next school year. It's easy! For the Parent Portal log on to https://gwinnett.k12.ga.us/parents/PPS/login. For MypaymentsPlus log on to at https://www.mypaymentsplus.com/welcome. You'll need your student's id number which can be found on his/her report card.
