Carl A. Furr Elementary opened its doors in 2007. The school is named after Carl Augustus Furr Sr., a former superintendent of Cabarrus County Schools, who retired from the system in 1965.
Furr Elementary is proud to be the first Cabarrus County School to offer a language immersion program. In 2013-14 we launched our Spanish Dual Immersion Program with a cohort of 48 students. Now more than 400 students participate in Dual Language at Furr. The program allows students to learn the grade level curriculum from two teachers, one who teaches in English and one who teaches in Spanish. This allows them to learn a second language by being fully immersed in that language for half the school year.
Furr Elementary is proud to have a diverse staff. Our staff members came to North Carolina from many states as well as other countries including: Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Puerto Rico, and Spain.
School starts at 8:15 AM. Students are dismissed at 3:00 PM.
School closings and delays can be found at the top of this web site, on the main Cabarrus County Schools web site, and on most local radio and TV stations, including Time Warner channel 21. The CCS Information line, 704-784-6197, is also updated with current information.
