School Nutrition
Gwinnett county has been granted a federal waiver until the end of the year which allow for all students to receive meals at no charge. This is for both Breakfast and Lunch and no ID is needed. This is for both curbside pickup and face to face instruction. The waiver is valid until Friday, December 18, 2020. 
Parking

Juniors and Seniors ONLY Pick-Up
Parking Passes will be available for pick up on the Attendance Office. Please bring a copy of a valid driver’s license and up-to-date car insurance for the school to keep.

Sophomores
Due to high demand, student parking has always been reserved for juniors and seniors at Peachtree Ridge. As many of our junior and senior students are leaning digitally this fall, there is a one-time opportunity to open up parking for sophomore students for the fall semester only. The sophomore fall semester parking pass, valid until December 18, 2020, is available for purchase on MyPaymentsPlus for $31.00. 

Once you complete the parking application on MyPaymentsPlus, please bring your driver’s license and proof of insurance to the attendance office for processing.

GOFAN.COM for Event Tickets
Sports tickets can only be purchased via gofan.com with a credit or debit card to home sporting events. Due to limited capacity, there are less tickets to events. To purchase a home ticket for games please click here.  Many other school are also going touch-less for tickets as well. If they are using GoFan, those tickets will also be available under Peachtree Ridge.
Football
Gwinnett County Public Schools and Peachtree Ridge High School have gone to great lengths to make sure our facility is set up to promote social distancing to the fullest extent possible. This includes a reduction in seating capacity to 30% where each seat is marked six feet apart. In addition, masks are strongly recommended while watching the game and expected to be worn when leaving your seat and walking throughout the stadium. The district has created a video that features Peachtree Ridge High School’s Athletic Director, Mr. Ryan Lesniak, highlighting our health and safety guidelines for outdoor sporting events.

In addition, tickets can only be purchased via gofan.com with a credit or debit card. Due to limited capacity, tickets are selling quickly. To purchase a home ticket for games please click here.  
We look forward to seeing many of you Friday night as we cheer our student athletes on to a victory.

Parents, we still need your help! Please check with your child and look around your homes to see if you still have a library book from last semester. If you do still have library books checked out that you no longer need, then you can bring them to the school during business hours and leave them with the front desk.
