Union County Public Schools has nine Splash Language Immersion programs, making the school system a leader in North Carolina.

Formal registration of those schools participating in Splash has been completed.

There is a limited number of slots, however, available in five of the participating schools: Shiloh, Unionville, Weddington and Western Union elementary schools, all of which offer Spanish Immersion, and Marvin Elementary School, which offers Mandarin Chinese Immersion. 

Any remaining slots will now be open to students who reside outside the Shiloh, Weddington, Unionville, Western Union and Marvin elementary attendance areas.

These open slots are for rising kindergarten students only. Parents will have to provide transportation and will have to submit a UCPS Request for Student Transfer form.

The registration period for these classes will end on May 31, 2015.

A parent information session has been scheduled for May 20, 2015, at the UCPS Professional Development Center at 6:00 pm.

For more information, please contact the school directly concerning the available openings.
