Bonner Elementary School is being forced to send students home after a power outage has made the school unusable today, February 9.

According to Elementary Principal Shelly Andres, the students were released at 11:30 a.m. and will not return to school today.

Andres says school is expected to be open on Friday and that power has been back on after noon, though intermittently. The power outage appears to have been caused by a tree or limb falling on the power line off school grounds.
