Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools will be closed Wednesday due to national women's strike

Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools will be closed Wednesday because many employees will likely miss work to attend a planned women's demonstration.

Many staff members are expected to participate in "A Day Without Women," a planned national strike that will demonstrate the crucial role women play in life.

"Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools values and supports its female employees," CHCCS said in a press release. "However, the decision to close schools is not an endorsement of the planned demonstration. The decision is made solely to avoid operating school on a day when there are insufficient staff to provide instruction and basic school services."

According to the press release, the day will be an optional teacher workday. Thursday will now be a full day of school, canceling the previously scheduled delayed opening.
