The Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) school calendar includes two make‐up days to address school days missed due to inclement weather. In addition to these days, GCPS also has the option of making up days missed due to inclement weather using Digital Learning Days. Should a decision be made to cancel school, students, parents, and staff will be notified via SchoolMessenger of the closing and if the day is a Digital Learning Day.
Look for this icon on your teacher's eCLASS page to access Digital Learning Day assignments!
COVID-19 DLD details
As a reminder, our eCLASS provider D2L is used by K12 and higher education institutions across the country and throughout the world. We anticipate that we could experience some slowness in our tool as usage everywhere increases.
Teachers will have DLD activities posted by 9:00 am daily. They will also be checking email, eCLASS pages, Google Classroom and other avenues to support students.
Gwin Oaks will be open from 9:00-11:00 am for students to pick up needed materials. The media center will also be open during this time for checkout. Teachers will not be in the building. You must enter and exit through the front doors. Please be mindful of social distancing while you are in the building.
As part of Gwinnett County Public Schools' digital learning day schedule, several local schools will provide lunch for anyone 18 years of age or younger. These lunches will be provided at no cost to the individual through the federal School Nutrition Program. The student or child must be present to receive the meal. Again, these schools will have student lunches available for pick up between 11am and 1pm every day next week, March 16-20.
Options for Gwin Oaks ES students include:
Alford Elementary (2625 Lawrenceville Hwy)
Baggett Elementary (2136 Old Norcross Rd)
Knight Elementary (401 N River Rd)
** NOTE: Gwin Oaks is not a meal location**
Students will be completing activities for their homeroom teacher, Special Areas teachers, and support teachers.
If you have multiple students attending Head Elementary, each student is expected to participate.
This means each student will need to log into his or her Student Portal/My eCLASS page individually.
Any school closure will be communicated using SchoolMessenger, social media, the GCPS website, and local news outlets. In the event that a school closure is necessary, the district could opt to hold a Digital Learning Day rather than using a snow make-up day. If the decision is made to hold a Digital Learning Day, it will be communicated as noted above, and the school and district processes for online learning will go into effect. If a decision is made to use a standard make-up day, students and staff will not be expected to access assignments online.
On a Digital Learning Day, teachers will post assignments on their eCLASS pages.
- High school assignments will be posted by 8 AM.
- Elementary school assignments will be posted by 9 AM.
- Middle school assignments will be posted by 10 AM.
Gwin Oaks Elementary teachers will be monitoring their page throughout the day if students or parents have any questions. You are also welcome to email your child's teacher if you have any trouble.
