A special called session of Johnston County Board of Education has been called for Monday, March 1, at 3:00 p.m. in the Evander Simpson Building in Smithfield. To comply with the Governor’s Executive Order, only the board members will be allowed in the boardroom. However, the open session portions of the meeting and all announcements will be accessible to the public via livestream.
Now more than ever, we are aware of the many different needs of our students and families. As we begin planning for the 2021-22 school year, we are seeking feedback from parents to gauge interest in establishing a Johnston County Public Schools Virtual Academy, as an alternative to the face-to-face instruction environment for students. We are asking for your input by completing an online interest survey.
Johnston County Public Schools has developed a detailed plan to mark senior milestones, including prom and graduation, while adhering to guidance from the Johnston County Public Health Department and the CDC in regards to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Online Kindergarten Registration for the 2020-2021 school year is Feb. 15-March 5. Full details are available on the Kindergarten Registration website.
Plan A for our face to face students starts Monday, March 1st. Students whose parents have selected them to come to school for face to face instruction will come to school Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday each week starting next Monday. Wednesdays will remain a remote/asynchronous learning day for all students for deep cleaning of the building.
Johnston County School Board voted for students to return to school under Plan B stating Monday, February 1st. Our teachers will be contacting you to make sure you know which cohort your child is in. If your child is in cohort 1, they will attend school on Mondays and Tuesdays. If your child is in cohort 2, they will attend school on Thursdays and Fridays. Wednesdays will be a remote learning day for all of our students for a deep cleaning of the building. Mr. Jewett will be doing another parent information video next week to talk about what instruction on Plan B will look like for our students.
