In GCPS, schools administer the national Iowa Assessment to 2nd grade students to measure achievement in Reading, Language, and Mathematics. Testing will take approximately 100 minutes each day. The test measures both basic skills and advanced skills so that teachers can learn more about each student’s academic strengths and potential learning gaps that may have occurred due to COVID-19. The district also uses achievement scores on the Iowa Assessment as a part of the process for identification for the Gifted Education program. While this assessment is not mandatory for Digital Learning students, the results help teachers improve instruction and provide support for your student.

A breakfast/lunch combination will be available for families to pick up from 10:30 -12:30 pm Monday-Thursday. Buses will not deliver meals. Families will be given a barcode with the student's ID number to bring each day they are picking up lunch. Please place a sign on your window with the student's name, grade, and teacher.
GCPS to provide meals free of charge to students and to children 18 and younger
Last week, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) granted additional waiver extensions that allow school districts to offer meals at no charge through December 31 through the Seamless Summer Option (SSO). This extension, paired with guidance received from the Georgia Department of Education, will allow Gwinnett County Public Schools to offer meals at no charge at school sites to all students. These meals are provided at no cost to the individual through the federal School Nutrition Program.
Students Attending School In-Person
Those attending school in-person will receive meals free-of-charge during their school’s scheduled meal times.
Curbside Pick-up for Digital Learners
Digital learners may pick up meals through the curbside pick-up programs at each school, Monday through Thursday, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Each day’s pick-up includes both breakfast and lunch with Thursday’s pick-up including meals for Friday. Families should check with their local school for specific curbside pick-up times and the location of the pick-up program. Individuals will not be allowed to enter the school to pick up or eat meals.
