  • Attendance Policy
    Learning hours are from 8:15 to 2:45 pm daily. Children arriving after 8:15 am are considered tardy. Frequent tardiness and early checkouts negatively impact a students’ academic performance.

    State law requires that students attend school 180 days per year. Since most subjects are taught in sequence, regular attendance is essential to a student’s success in school.

    Students are excused for the following absences:
    1) personal illness
    2) a death or serious illness in the immediate family;
    3) religious holidays;
    4) court orders and
    5) Conditions which render school attendance impossible or hazardous to health and safety.

    For each absentee, a written excuse explaining the absence must be brought to school on the first day following the absence. By law, parents will be notified if their child misses more than 5 days of school. The state of Georgia considers 10 absences or tardies to be excessive. Parents of children with excessive absences or tardies can be reported to local and state agencies, which will result in meeting with the Student Attendance Review Committee (SARC).

  • In response to the latest guidance for K-12 schools issued on Tuesday, July 27, 2021, by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Gwinnett County Public Schools has updated its back-to-school plans to require masks. As of July 28, 2021, masks will be required for students, staff, and visitors to all Gwinnett County Public Schools’ facilities and on school buses, regardless of vaccination status. This decision takes into account current conditions, the rise in COVID-19 case rates in Gwinnett County, and the ineligibility of children age 12 and younger for the vaccine.

    21-22 Masks REQUIRED
