Officials with the Richland 1 School District said expected heavy traffic from their On the Run II tour stop in Columbia led to their decision to close schools after a half day.
The district said in a statement that they worry if the schools dismiss at their regular times, buses will get caught in heavy traffic going to the show.
Sadly, all other schools in Richland 1 will dismiss at their normal times.
Beyonce and Jay-Z’s On the Run II concert is being held at the University of South Carolina’s 80,000-seat football stadium.
