GCPS COVID-19 Guidelines


The following guidelines are currently in place across all Gwinnett Schools.


As of March 10, all student and staff attendance incentives are suspended for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.
 


Families attempting to enroll a student from areas with a Level 3 Travel Health Notice advisory for the coronavirus, as identified by the CDC, should contact by telephone and/or email their local school for instructions related to registration.

The District continues to implement all best practices and materials at our disposal to keep each facility as clean as possible. GCPS custodians have reviewed proper cleaning and disinfecting procedures and are paying particular attention to high-touch surfaces (like doorknobs, faucet handles, etc.). If there should be a suspected case at a local school, GCPS would follow the Health Department’s guidance regarding additional cleaning measures.
 


Families should inform the local school by telephone and/or email if their student or a member of their household has traveled to areas with a Level 3 Travel Health Notice advisory for the coronavirus, as identified by the CDC. The local school will work with the family to determine the appropriate action regarding the re-entry of the student into the school. Click here for the link to the CDC’s Information for Travel.

 


There are no changes to already approved work-related travel. Employees who may have concerns regarding travel already scheduled may work with the airline or hotel directly for refunds or credits, if applicable. New requests for non-essential overnight work-related travel are not encouraged. Any new requests for overnight work-related travel require approval from an assistant superintendent or division head.

Employees should inform their supervisor by telephone and/or email, prior to returning to work, if they have traveled to areas with a Level 3 or 4 Travel Health Notice advisory for the coronavirus, as identified by the CDC or the U.S. Department of State.

There are no changes to already approved student travel or extracurricular activities. Understanding students, parents, and staff may have concerns regarding travel already scheduled, schools may cancel scheduled travel and offer parents the opportunity to secure refunds if that is an option and is applicable. New requests for non-essential overnight student travel is not encouraged.
