MONROE – Union County Public Schools faced criticism after the district announced a two-hour delay for Dec. 10 after a winter storm dropped snow across the Charlotte region.
Superintendent Andrew Houlihan said UCPS would monitor conditions through the night and let people know by 7 a.m. the next morning if they planned to cancel all classes. Neighboring school districts decided to cancel classes the night prior.
Several social media followers suggested UCPS cancel classes due to slush and the prospect of continued snow.
Someone tweeted “Imma fight houlihan,” prompting the district to retweet the comment and implore followers to be respectful in their comments about school leaders.
