Schools each have their own schedule. The elementary schools in Huntersville start very early because many parents commute in. They are 7:30-8 starts. Many of the magent elementary's start as late as 9:00 because buses double up for schools. You would have to consult their website at

If you are referring to the bell schedule it varies by school. Elementary schools can start as early as 7:15 with a 2:15 dismissal or start as late as 9:15 with a 4:15 dismissal. You can look up the bell schedule for all the schools at or by googling "Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools Bell Schedule". The link will give you the bell schedule by school in CMS.

If you are referring to the starting day schools generally start August 25th. If that day falls on a Saturday or Sunday they will start the following Monday. Schools end on or before June 10th. This year June 10th was a Monday but the last day for the students was Friday June 7th. You can count on it being around that date. Any snow days we do have are generally made up by losing days of prescheduled vacation. Also, there are no half days in CMS.

I hope this answer helps you out! If it does please give me a thumbs up for the most helpful answer! Thanks!

The schools in Charlotte generally start around the last week of August and end around June 10th. There is no snow days here and the last day of school is pretty set in stone. In my eight years living here they have never ended school later than the 10th of the month....
