All Chilton County Schools and Chilton Christian Academy will be dismissing early on Feb. 16 in anticipation of severe weather.

CCS Superintendent Corey Clements said he received a National Weather Service update at 2:43 p.m. on Feb. 15 that had a portion of Maplesville and Stanton expected to have storms coming trough at noon.

“We felt we needed to go ahead and make the decision to dismiss early,” Clements said. “We want to make sure everyone is safe.”
