Orange County News

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (WNCN) – Chapel Hill-Carrboro Schools will be the first district in the Triangle to not hold classes on May 1 because of the Educator’s Day of Action march and rally in Raleigh. 

The school board cited the expected staff absences as the reason for the decision Thursday evening. 

The day will be an optional teacher workday.

Hundreds of teachers rallied downtown last year, causing districts statewide to close schools.
