3.17 New Schedule

Following the UCPS Board of Education decision on March 15th, 2021, New Salem Elementary and all of UCPS will move all K-12 schools to five days a week for in-person learning. Additionally, students in Plan D (Fully Virtual) are being given the option of returning to Plan A (Fully Face to Face) from April 12th through the remainder of the school year. We are also allowing students to move from Plan A (Face to Face) to Plan D (Fully Virtual) at this time.

Students and parents who wish to remain in their current plan can disregard this email. 

Below are two Google Forms that are available for you to make us aware of this change. Please use one of these forms to tell us your decision. The deadline to fill out this form is Wednesday, March 24th. Click below on the form that applies to you. If you do not wish to change your child’s placement, there is no need to fill out a form. 

If you are unable to complete this form please email me at denny.ferguson@ucps.k12.nc.us or call me on my cell at 704-219-7980 so I can gather your information for the change.

**If you are not changing your child’s Plan, there is no form to fill out. Please only fill out a form if you wish to change plans at this point in the school year.**


When filling out these forms, please keep the following in mind:

1. If you change your plan, your child will likely receive a different teacher for the remainder of the year.

2. All face-to-face students will continue to follow UCPS guidelines for distancing, face covering, and all other safety protocols.

3. If you have multiple students that are being changed, please fill out one form for each student.


If you have any questions, you may contact the school at any time. Thank you!
