We received the news this afternoon that a large  funeral procession for Knightdale Officer Ryan Hayworth is expected to affect traffic in and around these school tomorrow during afternoon dismissal. Some roads will be closed, and other areas will be difficult to access once the funeral procession begins.


To avoid long carpool delays and extremely late bus runs, these school will be dismissed three hours early tomorrow (Friday, Oct. 22.)  


School buses will provide transportation home for students who ride by bus and parents will be able to pick up their children for rides out as usual. 


School staff will stay with students at school until arrangements have been made for each child to get home safely.


We apologize for the late notice. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
