Suwanee, Gwinnett Go Back to School on August 6

The state's largest school system cranks up Monday for 2012-13.

One sign of the end of summer: school starts. And so it is in Suwanee and the rest of Gwinnett County on Monday (Aug. 6), when students head back to Gwinnett County schools (GCPS)

Students at Collins Hill, North Gwinnett and Peachtree Ridge high schools get things started at 7:10 a.m., so prepare for additional traffic in those areas.
