Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Alicia Weeks
I am so excited to begin my 6th year teaching at Mcgees Crossroads Elementary. I have taught Kindergarten at Mcgees for the last 5 years and this year I am moving to first grade. I have taught mulitiple grade levels in Wake County and in Massachusetts. To watch the children continue to grow after they leave kindergarten is incredible. I am so happy to follow them and continue to develop their love for learning.
I am the mother of three girls. Maegan is my oldest and is 26 years old. She just graduated from Physician Assistant Program at MUSC in Charleston, SC. My middle daughter, Taylor, is a nurse at Duke Raleigh Hospital. She is 25 years old and is also the mother of 2 beautiful children, Fallon who is 5 and Noah who is 2. My youngest daughter, Carley, is 15 and is a sophmore at Johnston County Early College STEM program.
I have a standard poodle who is my love. I love dogs and cats but I am mainly a dog person. My dog, Julie, loves to go on hikes with me and just be my companion.
I also like to kayak, read, spend game nights with my family, go to the beach and the mountains.
I am so excited to begin the new school year and look forward to another Fabulous year at McGees.
Have a great summer! Read, relax, and HAVE FUN!!!!!!
I can't wait to see each of you in the Fall!
There have been significant changes to the Strong Schools NC toolkit that affects the quarantine procedures our staff and students must follow if they are exposed to a positive case of COVID-19. Any student or staff member who is currently quarantined due to an exposure of a positive COVID-19 case may return to school or work tomorrow, unless the close contact is a housemate. We are able to make this adjustment because our district requires masks for all students, staff, and guests.
Our district is launching a new portion of our website to further communicate bus delays and replacements with our families. We encourage those who have a student who utilizes our transportation to get to or from school to visit www.johnston.k12.nc.us/busdelays for updates on our school bus routes beginning Tuesday, January 18.
North Carolina schools are required to administer ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 to all students identified as English Learners (ELs) in the spring of each year to determine their progress in learning English. Each student is tested in four areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. This assessment helps us monitor their English language development.
Our district is continuing to follow the guidance and recommendations from the Johnston County Public Health Department, the CDC, and the Strong Schools NC Toolkit, and we will now adhere to a 5 day quarantine period for students or staff members who tests positive for COVID-19. This is a change from the previous 10 day quarantine time.
