School Times

Newton-Conover City Schools has a proud tradition of providing quality educational services tailored to the specific learning and emotional needs of our diverse student population. The bell times for our schools were adjusted in 2016-2017 to increase efficiency and to allow for increased flexibility relative to student needs. N-CCS also made adjustments within the school day to maximize instructional time to meet the State of North Carolina required 1,025 hours of instruction per school year.

********NEW FOR THE 2018-2019 SCHOOL YEAR!!!!!!

Because of the limited number of teacher work days during the school year, it has become increasingly necessary to have additional time for professional development for teachers.  In an effort to decrease the number of days where teachers are out of their classrooms and substitutes are required, this school year the Board of Education has added early release days to allow the district time to provide professional development for all staff. The Early Release Dates are as follows: September 19, November 7, February 13, and March 13. As such, the release times will be as follows:





Elementary Schools (North Newton ES, Shuford ES, South Newton ES): 11:30 am


Middle School (Newton-Conover MS): 11:00 am


High Schools (Newton-Conover HS & Discovery HS): 11:00 am


Conover School: 11:30 am


Kid Connection (North Newton ES, Shuford ES, South Newton ES, Conover School): Open for After School Care at 11:30 am
