Power outage closes Frankton schools

The Herald Bulletin

FRANKTON, Ind. — Frankton Jr. Sr. High School and Elementary School are closed for the day due to a power outage.

The power has been restored to the buildings at this time, but it was too late to have a full day of school as the students were sent home.

Donna Sizelove, a technology assistant at the Frankton-Lapel school corporation, said a decision on school had to be made by 8:20 a.m. and by that time the power was still out at the schools.

It is believed the inclement weather and wind may have caused the temporary loss of power.
