Alert: All CMS high schools to dismiss at 1 p.m. Friday

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools announced that all their high schools will be dismissing later at 1 p.m. Friday, January 18 due to technical issues with their testing software. 

Students across CMS have been taking their finals this week, school officials said. 

Students were supposed to get out of school around 12 p.m. Friday. The glitch pushed everything back about an hour. CMS said the issue was resolved quickly by the North Carolina Department of Instruction (NCDPI).
