Due to the inclement weather expected this evening, Metro after school activities are being cancelled today. Our school day will end at 2:30 PM as usual, but if your student planned to stay after school, they will need a ride home by 3:00 PM. This will allow everyone to travel home safely before any bad weather hits our area.
