Power outage sends Valley High School students home early

Valley High School released students early Friday because of a neighborhood power outage, school officials said.

Principal Kimberly Perry-Carter did not indicate whether classes were being affected and did not have an estimate on when power would be restored when she emailed parents about the outage at 8:18 a.m. The school is located on Burnham Avenue, near East Vegas Valley Drive.

The Clark County School District wrote in a message Friday afternoon that students were released early.

NV Energy reported that nearly 2,000 people in the area were without power around 1 p.m. because a pole or wiring had fallen down.

They estimated that power would be restored around 4 p.m.
