A Message from Superintendent Dr. Calvin J. Watts: December 6, 2022 has been designated as a Digital Learning Day.

Dear GCPS Students, Families, Staff and Community,

As I am sure you are aware, there is a runoff election for Georgia’s Senator to US Congress between Senator Raphael Warnock and Herschel Walker. This race will be the single issue on a special ballot for Georgia voters on December 6, 2022.

Gwinnett County Public Schools has 52 schools that will be used for voting on December 6. To provide the highest levels of safety for all schools and students and to allow GCPS principals, election board officials, and district support staff to provide the conditions for an efficient election, December 6 has been designated as a Digital Learning Day.

I want to thank our Board of Education for prioritizing the safety of students and staff while also allowing GCPS to continue to support citizens in our county and be a good partner in the democratic process.  

On this specially scheduled Digital Learning Day, students will access lessons in eCLASS but do not have virtual class time with their teachers.

To ensure that students have a nutritious breakfast and lunch to fuel their learning, our bus drivers will be on the road and at every bus stop to deliver meals prepared by the School Nutrition Program staff. 

Families should expect buses to run their routes from approximately 10:45 a.m. to noon, beginning at the first stops on the route. These delivered meals are provided at no cost to families and are available to anyone 18 years old and under.

I appreciate your patience and thank you in advance for participating in the special election.


In partnership and service,

Dr. Calvin J. Watts
