Weather Watch

posted Jan 13, 2015, 1:32 AM by Beth McCullough   [ updated Jan 14, 2015, 5:06 AM ]

(This announcement was updated at 8:00 AM on Wednesday, January 14, 2015.)

School administration has been closely monitoring the weather forecast for Tuesday night, January 13, through midday Wednesday, January 14, due to a chance of a wintry mix and/or freezing  rain.  

Chatham Charter School will begin the school day at 10:00 AM for all grade levels on Wednesday, January 14, 2015 as a precaution due to potential icing on roadways overnight.  Campus buildings will open at 9:30 AM for students to begin to arrive.  The staff day will begin at 9:30 AM.  The bus will arrive at the Pittsboro stop by 9:00 AM. 

This is a two-hour delay for grades K-8 and a delay of one hour and fifteen minutes for the high school.  Note:  Due to the use of automated systems, the change in schedule will likely show as a two-hour delay on television stations. 

Please remain watchful of weather announcements through our website (www.chathamcharter.org), SchoolMessenger rapid communication system, Facebook page, Twitter account, and area news outlets.  Amounts of precipitation that stick on the roads could necessitate administration cancel school on Wednesday.  Administration hopes to make any changes to the schedule by 8:00 AM.  If so, announcements will be made using the methods mentioned above.

As always, since some students come from areas outside of Siler City, families should make travel decisions in the best interest of safety and conditions along their routes to school. 

Athletics: Ballgames scheduled for tonight at Faith Christian School are to go on as planned.
