Ms. Cara Martin

Hi Friends! My name is Cara Martin and I was born and raised in Clayton, NC. I graduated from Clayton High School in 2017 and went on to swim at Marshall University. I am so excited that I got an opportunity to come back home to Clayton and teach students who are sitting in the same seats I was in not too long ago. In addition to teaching, I will be the swim coach! If you are interested or need anything, please don’t hesitate to reach out!

In regards to our classes, we will be using Canvas as our class platform.

  • Updated COVID-19 Quarantine Guidance

    There have been significant changes to the Strong Schools NC toolkit that affects the quarantine procedures our staff and students must follow if they are exposed to a positive case of COVID-19. Any student or staff member who is currently quarantined due to an exposure of a positive COVID-19 case may return to school or work tomorrow, unless the close contact is a housemate. We are able to make this adjustment because our district requires masks for all students, staff, and guests.

  • JCPS to Utilize New Website for Bus Updates

We encourage those who have a student who utilizes our transportation to get to or from school to visit for updates on our school bus routes beginning Tuesday, January 18.

  • ACCESS testing for English Language Learners

    North Carolina schools are required to administer ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 to all students identified as English Learners (ELs) in the spring of each year to determine their progress in learning English. Each student is tested in four areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. This assessment helps us monitor their English language development.

  • Updated COVID-19 Quarantine Guidance

    Our district is continuing to follow the guidance and recommendations from the Johnston County Public Health Department, the CDC, and the Strong Schools NC Toolkit, and we will now adhere to a 5 day quarantine period for students or staff members who tests positive for COVID-19. This is a change from the previous 10 day quarantine time.
