South Carolina Schools Closing Early To Make Way For The Carters
Who would’ve thought we’d see the day where kids get early an release because of a concert?
Well it’s no ordinary concert that will allow for thousands of South Carolina kids to head home a few hours than they usually do. The Carters’ world domination tour, or “On The Run II” as they like to call it, will touch down in Columbia South Carolina on Tuesday, August 21.
The Richland 1 School District is preparing to give students an early dismissal to avoid traffic and congestion ahead of their performance at Williams-Brice Stadium. The stadium holds about 80,000 seats and is home to the University of South Carolina’s Gamecocks.
At least six schools are expected to grant early dismissal, beginning as early as 11 a.m. “We are hoping that dismissing these schools early will reduce the likelihood that buses transporting those students home would be delayed by the concert traffic,” district spokeswoman Karen York said.
The Carters kicked off their stadium tour in the U.K. on June 6 and globe trotted all over Europe with the whole family in tow. The American leg of the tour began on July 25 and will end in Seattle on October 4.
