Mrs. Maria Eby
Hello! My name is Maria Eby. I am beyond thrilled to be a part of this amazing community and am extremely proud to be a Dragonfly:). My family and I moved to North Carolina from Michigan in 2008. My husband and I have two wonderful sons and an amazing daughter -in-law. Over the years I have taught almost all grades K-6, as well as served as a teacher coach. This will be my third year teaching 4th grade here at Dixon Road Elementary. I love teaching and work hard to routinely integrate the arts as well as project based learning into our classroom.

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.
