Students and Parents,
I miss seeing everyone at school! Please know that I think of you daily and hope you all are staying safe and well. I will continue to provide support to our students and families by doing
Student/Family Check-Ins and by providing resources you need througout the year.
I encourage you to take some time each day to check in with each other as a family to help process our new normal. I have provided resources below that can be helpful with these talks. Please continue to check back on this page for more resources.

My name is Margarita Simonetti and I am happy to be one of the school counselors at Four Oaks Elementary! I graduated from East Carolina with degrees in Hispanic Studies and Psychology. I received my Master of Education degree in School Counseling from Campbell University. It is my goal to help all students to believe in themselves to successfully develop their emotional, social, and academic skills.
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.
