Winter storm closes CMS on Thursday, Jan. 18

The winter storm has had a major impact on the Mecklenburg County area. While some roads may be clear, others can present a danger in many neighborhoods. Sub-freezing temperatures are expected tonight, causing refreezing of wet roadways on Thursday. Given these factors, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools will be closed on Thursday, January 18th. All evening events on Thursday are being cancelled and all athletic activities and Community Use of School events also are being cancelled.

Make-up days for school closings on January 17 and January 18 will be Monday, January 22 and Monday, February 19. CMS school principals will notify students and parents of exam and test schedule changes.

We will use the CMS website, Connect5 messages and news and social media to keep you informed of any changes to normal district operations.   

Again, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools will be closed, Thursday January 18. This will be a Code C day for CMS staff, essential staff report at 10 am. Thank you for your patience as we plan the safest course of action for our students and staff tomorrow. Enjoy your evening.
