CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Central Piedmont Community College officially announced Wednesday it will close down during the Democratic National Convention this September.

Students will be out of classes the entire week during the DNC, which is four class days after Monday’s Labor Day holiday on September 3.

Officials said the week off will serve as the school’s fall break, which is typically scheduled for late September or early October.

Charlotte police have told CPCC they want to use the campus as a security hub and staging area during the convention.
