Severe Weather Procedures

  • The safety of all children and staff members is the first concern of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) when making decisions about closing school or dismissing early. However, in light of current weather reports and the possibility of severe weather, CMS asks families to partner with the district if a decision is made to close school or dismiss early.

    The district follows the following guidelines in making decisions related to school closing.

  • Two-Hour Delay Option

  • Severe Weather in the Evening/Night

  • Severe Weather During the School Day
