Ms. Amy Watson
Welcome Polenta families! My name is Amy Watson and I am very excited to be part of the Puma family this year. I will be a face to face second grade teacher and look forward to having the children back in my classroom. This is my 10th year teaching in Johnston County. I moved to Clayton in 2001 from Pennsylvania. I graduated from Mercyhurst University with a degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I am blessed to have two children. My son will be in 6th grade and my daughter in 2nd. One of my favorite activities to do outside of school is to play pickleball. I can promise your children will come home talking about some game called pickleball that Ms. Watosn plays. I look forward to a wonderful school year. I know things are going to be different this year and I promise to do my best to keep everyone informed.

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.
As students in grades K-5 begin returning to school, the curbside locations for free meals will now be located at each middle and high school. The curbside meal locations at our elementary schools will end on Friday, Oct. 2 and will open at the middle and high schools on Monday, Oct. 5.
