Plans for Friday, March 6, Activities

The middle school students will tentatively still go on the ACC Women’s Basketball Tournament field trip to Greensboro unless the weather prohibits it there. If the middle school students are unable to go to Greensboro, but school is in session, they will go out to eat lunch in Siler City since campus lunch was not ordered for them----specific time to be determined (TBD). Staff will assess the situation Friday morning.

Sophomores will not be able to attend the CCCC Pittsboro campus event. However, the sophomores will still go out to lunch in Siler City since campus lunch was not ordered for them----specific time TBD. Staff will announce the high school schedule on Hear Ye, Hear Ye Friday morning by 10:00 AM.

The Science Fair will go on Friday as planned.  Students should bring their projects to the mezzanine as the school day begins.   

Watch the school website ( and social media pages (Facebook and Twitter), tune in to Siler City’s WNCA AM 1570 radio and area television stations (WFMY, Fox 8, WRAL, ABC 11, and News 14 Carolina), and be prepared for SchoolMessenger rapid communication announcements in staying updated on our school status during any potential school delay or closing.

Statewide Tornado Drill: Wednesday, March 4, 2015

posted Mar 3, 2015, 4:50 AM by Beth McCullough   [ updated Mar 4, 2015, 2:36 AM ]

(Chatham County Emergency Operations staff sent the following announcement out from the National Weather Service. Chatham Charter will participate in the annual drill.)

The Statewide Tornado Drill will occur on Wednesday, March 4, 2015 at 9:30 AM. Every school, business, work place, and family across the state is strongly encouraged to participate in this drill. It is important that all schools and businesses are aware of the following important points about the tornado drill:
The drill will be broadcast on NOAA Weather Radio and the Emergency Alert System via the Required Monthly Test (RMT). There will not be an actual Tornado Warning issued.

Most NOAA Weather Radio receivers (including the Midland WR-100 that many schools have) do not sound an audible alert for the RMT product; but instead, may have a blinking light on the display to indicate that an RMT was received. As such, when the RMT for the statewide tornado drill is initiated at 9:30 AM on Wednesday, March 4, 2015, there is a good chance that your NOAA Weather Radio will not sound an alarm.

Since your NOAA Weather Radio may not sound an alarm at the time the RMT is issued, you will want to do one of the following:
Manually turn on your NOAA Weather Radio receiver around 9:25 AM Wednesday morning, and simply listen to the audio broadcast to hear when the RMT is issued, which will mark the beginning of the statewide tornado drill or simply self-initiate the tornado drill on your own at 9:30 AM.

There will be no follow-up statements issued by the NWS to mark the end of the statewide tornado drill. It will simply be over when your group, school, business, or organization feels that you have adequately practiced your tornado shelter procedures.

Lunch Orders

posted Mar 2, 2015, 11:56 AM by Darlene Lemons

If you have a lunch order for Tuesday, Thursday, and/or Friday left from a previous week, it will be carried over to this week.  Lunch order forms will be sent home with younger children on Wednesday, March 4, for the week of March 9.  All students will place orders on Thursday as usual.

Because of the Friday, February 20 and 27, school closing, the Elizabeth's Pizza order for these dates will be carried over until Friday, March 13, for middle school and sophomore students attending the Women's ACC tournament on Friday,  March 6.
