Good morning, this is an important message from Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. A winter storm is expected to come through the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area today, bringing snow to our region. District leaders have been working with local weather and police officials to monitor weather and road conditions.
With safety at the forefront of our decision-making, we have decided to close schools two hours early today, Tuesday, Jan. 28. All buses will run routes two hours earlier than the normal time.
An early dismissal schedule means:
• All after-school and athletic activities are canceled. This includes open house sessions.
• ASEP staff will remain at sites until all children have been picked up. We urge parents to please pick up children as soon as possible.
• Lunch will be served at all schools.
• No make-up day is necessary.
CMS staff will continue to monitor road and weather conditions. We will communicate any decisions about tomorrow’s schedule this evening.
