Good afternoon, this is Rick Parker, Principal of East Mecklenburg High School calling with our Friday Weekly Update.
Due to Hurricane Michael pushing through the Charlotte area and causing unexpected CMS school closings, I received confirmation late last night about our new dates for our football game, barbecue, and homecoming. Here is the revised schedule for our upcoming events.
Our Culinary Barbecue event has been moved to Monday, October 15th. 11a.m. - 1 p.m. takeout only and 3 p.m. - 7 p.m. dine-in.
Our Homecoming event has been moved to Friday, October 26th when we play Hickory Ridge. This gives our students time to vote for Homecoming. We will still plan to have a Pep Rally.
Our Football game against Rocky River that was scheduled for October 12th is now scheduled on Friday, November 9th. This will be our last home game and it will be our Senior Night.
