Kannapolis schools delayed Thursday, Rowan-Salisbury operating on normal schedule
Kannapolis schools are operating on a two-hour delay, but the Rowan-Salisbury School System will operate on a normal schedule Thursday morning.
Temperatures should drop into the single digits overnight, and aren’t expected to rise above freezing again until mid-morning Friday.
Kannapolis buses will pick up students two hours later than usual, and schools will dismiss at their usual times.
Staff members should report to work at their regular time.
Kannapolis Intermediate and Kannapolis Middle will run from 9:15 a.m. until 2 p.m., and Kannapolis’ elementary schools will operate from 10:10 a.m. until 2:40 p.m.
A.L. Brown High School will be open from 10:40 a.m. to 3:25 p.m., and McKnight Head Start will operate from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Rowan-Salisbury Public Information Officer Rita Foil said that although district officials will continue to monitor changes overnight and into the morning, they’ve decided not to delay school.
