MOORESVILLE – Mooresville High School and Paul Hadley Middle School will dismiss early Tuesday because of a fire.

The schools were evacuated Tuesday morning after the fire, which school officials described as minor. Officials said smoke in an upstairs area of the high school needs time to air out, necessitating the early end to the school day.

High school students who drive themselves or ride with another students are dismissed as soon as they can retrieve their keys and personal belongings from the school.

Middle school students who ride with high schoolers or who are normally picked up by parents can leave at 12:30 p.m. from door 11. Parents who normally pick up their children should use the PHMS driveway only.

Bus riders will be dismissed at 12:30 p.m. All students will remain under school supervision until they are dismissed or picked up. All elementary school bus routes will run at their normal times.

In a message to parents, the school said, “Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in this unusual situation. We will communicate further information as it becomes available.”
