Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools students will have the day off Monday, but the systems top brass will greet the public Monday evening at a community town hall meeting.
Monday is a teacher work day, following the end of the first academic quarter.
That means CMS buses wont be on the roads Monday morning and afternoon, but teachers and other school staff will be working.
And at 6 p.m., Superintendent Heath Morrison and other CMS leaders will host the fifth in a series of six town hall get-togethers, this one at Vance High School. The school is at 7600 IBM Drive, in the University City area.
The meetings are designed to give the public a chance to tell CMS officials what is and isnt working in the school system. The meetings include a discussion and small-group conversations.
Previous meetings have been at Rocky River, Harding University, Ardrey Kell and Hopewell high schools. The last community meeting is at 6 p.m. Nov. 15 at Myers Park High.
