Mark your calendar... the first day of school is Monday, August 5, 2019!
Don’t wait... Summer is the best time to get ready, get set, and get registered if you are new to Gwinnett or changing schools due to a move!
Gwinnett County Public Schools will hold NEW student registration at all local schools on the following Tuesdays and Thursdays in July: July 9, 11, 16, 18, 23, and 25 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
If your child is new to Gwinnett County Public Schools, please register online before coming to the school.
As we approach the end of the school year I wanted to remind you that students will no longer be able to charge their meals after April 30th. If a student does not have sufficient funds on their account after April 30th they will receive an alternate meal until sufficient funds are applied to their account. In order to avoid this situation we strongly encourage you to insure that your child has enough funds on their account thru the last day of school, which is May 22.
Additionally, if your child has a negative balance we kindly ask that all negative balances are paid no later than May 22.
If you have any questions please contact your local school cafeteria manager.

Under a state law passed by the Georgia State Legislature in 2007, parents of students who receive special education services may request to transfer their child to another public or private school in Georgia provided that their child has an IEP and has been enrolled for a full academic year in a Georgia public school...Read more here.
As a means of improving results for children with disabilities, the Georgia Department of Education is required to survey parents of students receiving special education services. You are receiving this notice as the Parent/Guardian of a student receiving services in Gwinnett County and therefore, you are able to participate in this year's survey process. This is an opportunity for your voice to be heard. The feedback you share will help guide local schools' efforts to improve Special Education services and results for children and families. The survey is available on-line and can be accessed on the Georgia Department of Education website.
#RecessForAll's mission is to create an inclusive playground that reflects our classrooms. We want an area that is shaded for the kids who cannot handle being in the sun for long. We want a playground that has no boundaries for kids who have vision challenges or for those who use walkers or wheelchairs. We want there to be play equipment that all kids can use no matter their size or mobility. We want equipment that will help our peers with their sensory needs, their anxiety needs, their language needs, and their social challenges. #RecessForAll wants to create a place where everyone feels like they are a part of our awesome school.
We invite our students in the Arcado family to all join in to make #RecessForAll a reality! To make a donation, please visit: https://www.gcps-foundation.org/donation/des/recessforall
