Students will need to adapt to new schedules during DNC

If you're like most people, including myself, you have no idea how you’re going to get around Charlotte during the Democratic National Convention.

What businesses will be closed, what’s the best way to get to work, which roads will be blocked at what time of day - it’s all subject to change. We’re just going to have to be flexible.

But for those looking for changes in the operation schedule for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools during the convention, here you go.

The convention, which will be held Sept. 4 -7, is expected to bring thousands to the city, so Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is making adjustments to ensure a productive second week of school.

Changes include:

Metro School will have an early dismissal at noon on Sept. 6.

Irwin Academic Center students will be dismissed at 12:45 p.m. on Sept. 6.

First Ward Elementary will have three days of early dismissal.

Students will dismiss at 12:45 p.m. Sept. 4 - 6. All schools will return to normal schedules on Sept. 7.
