Weather Delays Area Schools Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

The weather has affected schools across the region this week with delays and early dismissals. Rowan-Salisbury Schools operated on a 3-hour delay for students Tuesday and a one hour delay for staff because of the threat of severe weather. Cabarrus County Schools also had a 3-hour delay Tuesday.

Cabarrus County Schools canceled after school activities Monday, and Rowan-Salisbury Schools dismissed an hour early because of sleet. Rita Foil, spokesperson for Rowan-Salisbury Schools, said, “The weather was changing (Monday). There seemed to be more sleet, even snow reported in some areas.”

Parents had mixed feelings on the early dismissal. Susan Bruce said, “If it’s safety for the school buses, carrying the kids home, I think it’s a good idea.” Chris Shuffler, another parent, said, “If they was going to do it, they should’ve called it at 12 because it was really coming down about 11:30, 12:00 the sleet was.”

Foil says the decision to dismiss early Tuesday was announced at 12:45 p.m. She says that allowed an hour and a half notice before the first school dismissed students at 2:15 p.m.
