Update :March 1st - 5th, 2021

Good evening Clayton High School students and parents, this is Bennett Jones, principal of Clayton High School with the weekly update for the upcoming week, March 1st - 5th, 2021.

First, seniors and their parents are reminded of the senior parent meeting that will be held via Zoom tomorrow evening at 6:30 PM. The link to the Zoom will be sent to seniors via their school email account by 5:00 PM tomorrow.

Next, juniors and sophomores are reminded about the CCP opportunities next school year through JCC. The CCP application deadline has been extended to March 17th. Students interested in taking classes through JCC in fall 2021 must submit an application by this deadline. There are two Parent/Student info sessions remaining which are this Tuesday and Thursday from 6-730.  All of this information can be found in the banner on the CHS website.

Next, as we begin planning for the 2021-22 school year, JCPS is 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.
JCPS is asking for your input by completing an interest survey online at You can find the interest survey linked on the homepage of the JCPS website. Please complete the interest survey by Tuesday, March 2. Please note, responding that your student is interested in the JCPS Virtual Academy does NOT represent a final commitment. The data collected in this survey will be used for planning purposes only.

This week begins several sports seasons. Softball tryouts will be in the old gym from 2:30 - 4:00. Women’s soccer will be at 2:20 - 4:00 on the field. Men’s Tennis will be from 2:20 - 4:00 at the Clayton Community Courts off of Amelia Church Road. Men’s and Women’s Golf will begin at 2:20 at Pine Hollow Golf Club. Any athlete trying out for a team must have completed the required paperwork, including a current athletic physical. Information concerning this information can be found on the CHS website under the Athletics tab.

Lastly, this is a reminder that the 3rd quarter will end on Friday, March 12th. I encourage all students to stay up to date in their assignments and to consistently communicate with each of their teachers.

Thank you all for your continued support and for being Comets ALL IN, have a good night and a great week!
