Mrs. Amanda Jernigan
My name is Amanda Jernigan and I am a Preschool Teacher at Four Oaks Elementary. I graduated from the University of Mount Olive College with a degree in Early Childhood Education in 2012. This is my 6th year at Four Oaks Elementary, and I have been teaching Preschool for 8 years. I love being a part of each child's life and watching them grow through out the school year. I am excited about the 2020-2021 school year and what all it brings. Each year is a new adventure full of laughter, hugs, and learning. We look forward to meeting each of our new children in September!
A special called session of Johnston County Board of Education has been called for Thursday, July 29 at 5:00 p.m. in the Evander Simpson Building in Smithfield. The open session portions of the meeting and all announcements will be accessible to the public via the livestream available online.
The deadline is quickly approaching for Johnston County Public Schools families who need transportation for their students during the 2021-2022 school year.

Students who will begin school on August 23rd have until August 2nd to request transportation. This date is for all other JCPS Schools on the traditional school calendar.
While face masks are still required in all of our indoor facilities, students, staff, and guests of our campuses are no longer required to wear a face covering when outdoors. Students and staff may continue to wear masks when participating in recess or outdoor activities if they choose to do so.
