Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools will be closed Tuesday, the district announced as a winter storm threatening widespread ice rolled into the city.
The day will be made up March 12 for most schools. After-school programs for Tuesday are also canceled.
Project LIFT schools that operate on a year-round calendar will make up the day either March 27 (Bruns Academy and Walter G. Byers) or April 3 (Druid Hills Academy and Thomasboro Academy).
CMS students were not in class Monday because it was a teacher workday.
The district’s offices and school buildings closed at 2 p.m. Monday as a winter storm began to roll in. All evening activities for Monday were canceled.
Union County Schools will open on a two-hour delay Tuesday. Iredell-Statesville Schools will be closed Tuesday.
The last time CMS faced a close call on winter weather, in mid-January, the district waited until about 5 a.m. to make a decision. Classes were held normally as forecasts of freezing rain did not come to pass. Staff writer Elisabeth Arriero contributed.
