This will be a unique year, but I am sure we will do great. For this year, previous students should be signing up for Naval Science 3 and ANS3, unless you are a senior, then NS4. If you are interested in being on the competitive drill teams, sign up for our 4th block Leadership/Drill and Ceremony class. We will be using Canvas for class activities this year as long as we are virtual. Keep track of your class, don't get behind! Check out the calendar for all of our upcoming events.

Clayton High School Announcements
Every JCPS parent must fill out the Second Semester Choice form to choose either the Virtual Program OR face-to-face instruction for each of their students. The Second Semester Choice form is to be filled out for ALL students in grades PreK-12. If a child is going to participate in face-to-face instruction for the second semester, the parent will be asked to fill out transportation information for the student in the form. A form for each student should be completed by Nov. 30.
Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
