As part of the city’s planning for the Democratic National Convention (DNC), Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) will temporarily adjust school dismissal times and adapt bus routes. The historic event Sept. 4-7 is expected to bring thousands of delegates and visitors to the city.
Traffic volume and patterns will change during the convention as streets are closed or restricted. CMS has made adjustments that will allow teaching and learning to continue all week – which is also the second week of school – while helping parents and students get to school on time and without undue difficulty.
Early dismissal on Thursday, Sept. 6, with students leaving at noon. Return to normal schedules on Friday, Sept. 7.
