The City of Lawrenceville will be partnering with the Lawrenceville Police Department for this year’s event beneficiary. A portion of the proceeds from Rock’n Ribville will benefit the Lawrenceville Police Benevolent Fund. This is to support the Fund’s initiatives and objectives related to fallen officers in the line-of-duty, as well as educational preparation resources for training new law enforcement recruits to serve the community.

Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) students and teachers will return from their summer break for the first day of classes on Monday, Aug. 7.
On August 21, 2017, Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) will delay dismissal by one hour to help ensure the safe viewing of the eclipse and a safe dismissal of students. On this day, all of North America will experience an eclipse of the sun. This means that Earth, the sun, and the moon, which all orbit in space in predictable paths, will align. The moon will move between the sun and Earth blocking the light of the sun. Thus, the moon will cast a shadow on Earth. Here in Gwinnett, we will experience a near total eclipse between 2:35 and 2:40 p.m. that will last approximately two minutes. This alignment of the sun, the moon, and Earth will mark the first time this phenomenon has occurred coast-to-coast in our country in nearly 100 years.
As dismissal for Gwinnett County Public Schools high school students occurs shortly after 2 p.m. and the first tier of elementary school students are released at 2:45 p.m. the district felt a one-hour delay in dismissal would allow for better supervision of students during the eclipse. NASA has issued guidelines for watching the eclipse that advise that children should be carefully supervised when using solar filters to view the eclipse. “GCPS has made the decision to dismiss one hour later than usual as a safety precaution,” explains Dr. Jonathan Patterson, associate superintendent for Curriculum and Instructional Support. “It would be difficult to monitor students who are being dismissed or those who are riding on school buses during the eclipse. Ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun. In addition to addressing safety concerns associated with the eclipse, the delay will provide more time for us to make this a special educational event for our students, allowing us to organize safe and engaging viewing experiences for students.”
Location: Christ the Lord Lutheran Church on Hwy 120.

Gwinnett County Police Department School Bus Traffic Law Safety Video
The following video was created by the Gwinnett County Police Department in conjunction with Gwinnett County Communications. The objective of the video is to educate the motoring public on the state law regarding when to stop for a school bus loading and unloading children.
To a parent, there is nothing more important than our children.
As the new school year approaches, expect to see Gwinnett County Police officers enforcing OCGA 40-6-163.

What do bacon, ice cream, and peanut butter all have in common? They are more than just tasty treats. They are also sources of fats, oil, and grease, also known as FOG. While fats, oil, and grease add extra flavor to your food, pouring FOG down the drain can leave a real mess in Gwinnett County’s sewer collection system.
FOG creates clogs that can back up sewage into your street, yard, or home and can even send it spilling into a neighborhood stream! Think of it this way––if it can clog arteries in the body, then it will probably clog the sewer pipe. Fortunately, clearing up FOG is as easy as doing a few simple things around the kitchen.
