Mrs. Lauren McCall
I received my Elementary Education degree from Appalachian State University in 2002. I have been teaching in the elementary school setting for 19 years. I taught in Wake county for 10 years and Johnston county for 8 years. I have my Academically and Intellectually Gifted certification. I have also taught all grades Kindergarden through Third grade and have been an academic specialist serving students K-2. I am very excited to be teaching 3rd grade virtually!

In regards to School Nutrition - All schools will open for curbside service on August 17th. The lunch service time is 11:00am-12:00 pm (Monday through Friday). Students in all grade levels can receive meals curbside and when coming through our lines will be given one lunch and one breakfast meal at no cost. Beginning September 1, students or parents picking up meals curbside will asked to give their child's name or lunch number. Parents are encouraged to complete our Meal Applications at www.lunchapplication.com for assistance with paying for their child's meal. Children can use the same meal status from last school year for the first 30 days of school and that grace period ends on September 28. After that date students' meals will either be free or paid, depending on their status for this school year. The price for a paid student lunch in K-8 is $2.30, and the price for 9-12 is $2.40.
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.
