  • 2 Hour Delay for Students on Thursday Oct 26 Burns High, Burns Middle, Casar, Fallston Union, and Washington elementaries as well Cleveland Early College, North Shelby School, and Turning Point Academy will operate on a two-hour delay.  Kidz Around before-school care will also delay two hours.  All staff in these zones are encouraged to arrive as close to the normal start time as possible while making certain to travel with caution.  Several roads remain closed in Cleveland County, mostly in the Burns attendance area.  Therefore, some bus routes will be modified. Please be patient with us as the routes may be extended a bit to accommodate for the road closures.
