Pittsboro, NC - Due to the Chatham County courthouse fire, schools in the Pittsboro area will be affected in the following ways on Friday, March 26:

• Due to the fire at the courthouse in Pittsboro, much of downtown Pittsboro will be closed to most traffic on Friday morning. This will affect bus and car riders to Pittsboro Elementary, Horton and Northwood as well as central office employees. One alternate route will be the Highway 87 Bypass that comes by Al's Diner. Everyone affected is encouraged to leave additional time to get to school or the central office.

• Bus routes inside the barricaded area in downtown Pittsboro will not be able to run. These families will need to provide transportation for their children.

• Pittsboro Elementary and Northwood High School will operate on their normal school day schedules, which means classes will begin at 8:00 a.m. as usual.

• Horton Middle School will start its school day for students at 10:00 a.m. Horton staff should report to work at their normal time.
