HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Radford High will end the school day early on Thursday to ensure students and parents aren’t stuck in Bruno Mars concert traffic.

The schedule will also allow for on-campus parking for event-goers.

Radford High said it will end the day at 12:45 p.m., instead of the normal 2:10 p.m.

The parking lot at the school will open to concert goers at 3:30 p.m.

Nearby Makalapa Elementary, meanwhile, will end its day at 2 p.m. Thursday as usual. But parents are being asked to pick up their children by 2:30 p.m.

All after-school activities at both schools have been canceled.

Aloha Stadium officials have urged people to prepare for bumper-to-bumper traffic Thursday associated with the concert. Mars will also perform on Saturday and Sunday.
