Schools closed Sat., March 8

Wake County schools will be closed on Saturday, March 8.

WCPSS Transportation officials have driven the roads this morning. Based on their observations of icy conditions and a consistent forecast of continued sub-freezing temperatures into the morning, there are serious concerns about the safety of bus and car transportation.

The SATs have also been postponed. More information on  a rescheduled date will come later.

In addition to checking the WCPSS website, Facebook, and Twitter, parents and employees can stay informed about inclement weather by signing up for emergency WCPSS email notifications on school closings, delays, and early dismissals. Visit or click here to sign up.
