​School's out for the Carters! 

Six schools in South Carolina can look forward to early dismissals on Aug. 21, and it's all thanks to Beyon​cé and Jay-Z

According to ​Billboard, officials with the Richland 1 School District said expected traffic from the On The Run II ​show in Columbia led them to close the schools after a half day. 

The district said they worry busses will get caught in the traffic going to the show if they have regular dismissal. 


The U.S. leg of Beyoncé and Jay-Z's OTR II started on July 25 in Cleveland and will end on Oct. 2 in Seattle.

Their Columbia show is set to take place at the University of South Carolina's football stadium, which can seat 80,000 people.

Unfortunately for the other schools in Richland 1, they didn't get quite as lucky. All other schools will have regular dismissal on Aug. 21.
