Mrs. Logan Short
Hello! My name is Logan Short and I am absolutely honored to be your child’s First Grade teacher! I graduated from East Carolina University in May of this year with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education, concentrating in Reading. I am originally from Willow Spring, but have recently moved to Clayton with my husband whom I married in June of this year. I am so incredibly excited to start this next new chapter of my life at Riverwood Elementary and to meet your sweet babies! I believe that reading is one of the most important gifts you can give to someone, as it is the means to make all other learning possible. I can’t wait to watch these kiddos be successful readers this year, and by doing so, foster a love
for learning that they will carry with them for a lifetime!
Our district is launching a new portion of our website to further communicate bus delays and replacements with our families. We encourage those who have a student who utilizes our transportation to get to or from school to visit www.johnston.k12.nc.us/busdelays for updates on our school bus routes beginning Tuesday, January 18.
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.
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.
Johnston County Public Schools is participating in the Test to Stay Program, a voluntary study with Duke University and the ABC Collaborative. Due to that participation our students now have more options if they are deemed a close contact to a positive COVID-19 case while at school.
The Johnston County Board of Education voted unanimously to approve the 2022 Johnston County Public Schools salary schedule at their regularly scheduled Dec. 14 meeting.
