Superintendent’s Welcome Back Message  (08/30/21)

The first day of the 2022 school year for Mecklenburg County students is next Tuesday, September 7th. The school year is very different from last year this time as we have new ways to deal with the COVID pandemic. This Superintendent’s video explains how things are different and what students and parents should expect.

Back to School Night Reminders

Mecklenburg County is currently experiencing high community transmission rates of the COVID-19 virus. We want to remind everyone that the FDA has officially approved the Pfizer vaccine for regular use. We encourage everyone age 12 or older to get vaccinated to help end this disease.
We also understand our two best tools to prevent the spread of the disease are properly wearing an appropriate face covering and social distancing as possible. With students and parents in attendance at Back to School Night, we anticipate large numbers of people in our schools that evening. As a reminder, everyone inside our schools at Back-to-School Night must wear a face mask at all times – covering both nose and mouth, please.
Finally, to help us reduce overcrowding in spaces and keep our distance, we’re also asking that only one adult accompany their student(s) to back to school night this year.

School Start Time Change for the 2021-22 Academic Year


When students return to school in the fall, elementary schools will start and end about an hour after our secondary schools. We’re making this change in order to provide transportation to all who need it, and we know this may impact many families. We want to alert everyone to this change early so all may plan accordingly. Here are the estimated school day times for planning purposes, but these may still shift a bit according to the needs of the individual schools.
