Cabarrus County Schools to welcome students back August 27
As thousands of students, teachers, and families prepare for the new school year to begin on Monday, the City of Concord encourages everyone to be cautious as the community readjusts to school year vehicle and pedestrian traffic. Familiarize yourself with laws regarding stopped school buses at ncbussafety.org. Be extra careful around bus stops, school zones, and crosswalks, and plan extra time to travel next week so you will not feel rushed on your morning and evening commutes. Learn more on the Cabarrus County Schools back to school site: cabarrus.k12.nc.us/bts.
