  • Union County Public Schools have worked long and hard to ensure that students could return starting October 26th to school four days a week while also ensuring that students could get their schooling via Plan D (full virtual) if their family decided that was the best option for their child.  In order to make these two options work we had to collaborate with our cluster elementary schools to provide full virtual teachers for our Plan D students.  Here is what to expect:  

    K-1 students who selected Plan D will have a full virtual teacher from Fairview Elementary.

    2-3 students who selected Plan D will have a full virtual teacher from Unionville Elementary.

    4-5 students who selected Plan D will have a full virtual teacher from New Salem Elementary.

    Letters will be mailed out tomorrow to all families who selected Plan D for your child.  This letter will tell you who your new teacher will be.  

    At New Salem, when we shifted a teacher to teach a full virtual 4th/5th classroom it created staffing shifts in 4th and 5th grade.  All parents of 4th and 5th-grade students at New Salem will receive a letter in the mail this week letting you know how your child’s teacher/classroom placement may have changed.  

    If your child receives AIG or EC services - their services will not be changed or affected by the staffing shifts.

    Finally, regardless of grade, if you selected for your child to attend New Salem four days or Plan D full virtual this will begin October 26th.  

    Please expect car rider delays as we will be increasing clients by 50% and we will still be conducting our safety protocols.  

     Thank you in advance for your patience and please feel free to reach out with questions.

  • This Tuesday and Wednesday morning the New Salem team wants to show you, our fabulous parents, some appreciation!  Bring your favorite coffee mug with you in the car rider line.  Once you drop off your kiddos as you head toward exiting the campus you will see the signs for you to pull over and get your mug filled with coffee or hot chocolate!  And...if your kiddo rides the bus...don’t worry.  We are sending a treat home in your child’s book bag to show you some love too!  Thank you for all you have done to support your child during this season of change.  
    On Wednesday, October 21st, New Salem will be participating in a Union County and Nationwide Unity Day. On Unity Day, we wear orange. Why orange? Because it’s bright and it makes a statement when we all wear it together! Unity Day is about standing up against bullying, and promoting kindness, inclusion, and New Salem Pride. All students and staff are encouraged to wear orange to participate in Unity Day!
    Thank you and have a great day!  And...don’t forget your mug!

  • Fall pictures will be next Tuesday and Wednesday. Your student received an order envelope this week. Orders can easily be placed online or you can send the order with them on their next face-to-face day. All students will be photographed for yearbook purposes so remember to dress to impress. Virtual students should contact the front office at 704-296-3175 to schedule an appointment to have their picture taken. Appointments will be available on Tuesday and Wednesday from 11:30 – 1:30.

    I want to personally thank all of the families who have already participated in our SchoolStore fundraiser! We are on our way to reaching our goal, but we need everyone’s help to make sure our teachers get the essential tools they need to help our students succeed. If your family hasn’t participated, there’s still time! This safe and easy fundraiser is 100% online so there is no face-to-face selling, collecting money, or delivering products. Participation only takes 12 minutes and your child will win fun and exciting prizes. Every student will receive a prize, just for participating. More prizes will be rewarded when goals are reached. Please help now. It really will make a difference. Thank you in advance for your support.
