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.
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.
Alcova teachers will be monitoring their page throughout the day if students or parents have any questions. You are also welcome to email or dojo your child's teacher if you have any trouble.
If you have multiple students attending Alcova Elementary, each student is expected to participate. This means each student will need to log in to his or her Student Portal/My eCLASS page individually.
