Controversy over plan to use MLK holiday for CMS snow make-up da - | WBTV Charlotte

  • The CMS snow make-up day will be Jan. 17, which would have been the day off for the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. A teacher workday is planned for Jan. 21. Should the days be changed?

  • Thank you for participating in our poll. Here are the results so far:

    No. Because the MLK holiday appears first on the calendar, it should be used as the make-up day.

Controversy over plan to use MLK holiday for CMS snow make-up day

By Jeff Rivenbark - email

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) – Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools canceled class on Monday due to the snow and icy road conditions.

According to the CMS website, the make-up day is scheduled for Monday, January 17.

A Teacher Workday is scheduled later in the week on Friday, January 21. 

Some parents are wondering why school leaders aren't making up the missed day of school on Friday, instead of the King Holiday.

CMS stands by the decision saying the school make-up calendar was approved months ago.
