Inclement Weather

In the event of an emergency due to weather or any other condition requiring the termination or early dismissal of classes, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools may suspend the operation of the school day.  Should an emergency occur, information will be available from the following sources: CMS’s Web site: www.cms.k12.nc.us., Local radio and television stations, Connect-ED voice and text messages, all HFES Parent Communications systems. For closing and delays, information will be posted by the media by 5:30 a.m. Early dismissal information will be posted between 11 a.m. and noon. Closings will also be announced on CMS TV.

Safety is our top priority. In the event of an emergency, Huntingtowne Farms Elementary School (HFES) staff will be unable to make individual telephone calls to parents. HFES will use the Connect-ED voice and text message system. Connect-ED is a service that allows schools to send recorded messages to parents and staff within minutes. To ensure you receive proper notification, please regularly update your contact information via parent note to the school and/or Powerschool. 


For a safe and orderly dismissal, HFES will adhere to the following:

Students will be dismissed by his/her emergency mode of transportation 

indicated on their Emergency Dismissal form.
