We realize that some of you may not have internet and/or devices or may prefer paper copies, so we will be preparing instructional packets for our students. Families can pick up the packets on Friday, March 27th at 11:30am by the back of the cafeteria. Packets will be labeled by grade-level and stored in a container. The packets will remain outside of the building by the cafeteria at all times. Packets can be picked up at anytime from the container after Friday at 11:30am. For those who have digital access at home, please visit our school website on Thursday and a link will be provided for you to access this information. The instructional packets and online resources provide optional supplemental learning for our students at this time. The instructional packet includes material that has been previously taught and serves as review. These materials are not intended to be core instruction.
The stops listed below will help us serve families across Johnston County who need meals for their children. Like the school meal service sites, these delivery locations will offer a lunch and shelf-stable breakfast to children ages 18 and younger at no cost. These delivery locations will be available from 12:00 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. beginning March 20 until further notice.
Meadow School will be offering curbside grab and go pick up lunch service beginning on Wednesday, March 18 from 11:30 a.m to 1:30 p.m. Meals will be offered on weekdays until further notice at no cost. Any students under the age of 18 can receive a meal at any meal service location regardless of whether they attend Johnston County Public Schools. A parent or household member can come from the household to pick up the student meals.
At this time, all traditional high school graduations are still planned for May 29. Graduation ceremonies for Johnston County Early College Academy and Johnston County Career and Technical Leadership Academy will now take place on May 16th, rather than the original date of May 15th.
