Ms. Linda Stanford
I have been a 7th grade Social Studies teacher at Smithfield Middle School for 18 years. This school year will be year 19! My husband and I live in Apex with our two English Springer Spaniel dogs, Madison and Jackson. I am originally from Georgia but my husband and I have lived in North Carolina for 20 years. Before settling here, we lived in several different places around the United States including Wisconsin, Minnesota, Vermont and California. However, North Carolina was where we chose to settle down and make our home. I really enjoy teaching Social Studies and I love being a part of the SmMS Knights family!
I am delighted to be your teacher of Social Studies / World History
for the 7th grade at the great Smithfield Middle School!
We have so much to learn about this school year!!
¡Estoy encantado de ser su maestra de Estudios Sociales / Historia
Mundial para el séptimo grado en la excelente escuela secundaria

Smithfield Middle School will be using Google Classroom as the way for
students to access communications from their teachers and their assignments
for each subject. ALL students who have me, Linda Stanford, as your 7th
grade Social Studies teacher will access my Google Classroom using this code:
6bj53kc (Our Google Classroom is titled "Stanford's Remote Learners
Once school begins on Monday, August 17, I will have virtual office hours
from 9:20 - 10:05 a.m. During that time, I will be available for students or
parents / guardians to contact me with any questions, concerns or issues
that you may have. It might be a question about our Social Studies class,
it could be an issue with technology, maybe you need help
on one of our assignments, or you have questions about a project we are
working on. But this time, 9:20 - 10:05, is dedicated time for me to be
available to my students.

We are offering a new opportunity for our families this winter break. Parents are invited to sign up to receive holiday meal kits that will be distributed from all of our high school sites. Each meal kit will include seven days of packaged breakfast and lunch meals per child.
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.
