Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is slated to close all schools early on Friday, due to impending weather.
The following message was sent to parents early Friday morning:
Good morning CMS parents. This is an important message from the CMS Communications Office.
We have been working closely with local weather and police officials since yesterday to monitor the winter storm that is expected to pass through the Charlotte area this afternoon, bringing a mix of freezing rain and sleet to our region.
Ensuring the safety of our students and staff is our number one priority. So today Friday Jan 25, all Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools will operate on a two-hour early release schedule.
That means all schools will release students two hours earlier than their normal release times, and all afternoon bus routes will operate two hours earlier than their normal route times.
All field trips, after school clubs, athletic practices and games, and all after school enrichment programs will be canceled.
If your child is normally transported to an alternate ASEP site, you should plan to pick up your child at that site unless other arrangements are made with the school. No makeup days for students will be necessary.
Again, all CMS schools will release students two hours earlier than their normal release times, and all afternoon bus routes will operate two hours earlier than their normal route times. Please make arrangements to ensure that your child gets home safely.
