Snider to resume Tuesday

Snider High School students are expected back in school Tuesday after a power outage sent them home several hours early today.

Snider’s approximately 1,865 students in grades 9 to 12 were dismissed at 1 p.m. today because of a power outage.

The outage was related to aging infrastructure in a section of the school that needs repaired and was not related to current construction projects, officials said.

Kathy Friend, chief financial officer for FWCS, said the power was restored shortly after students were sent home Monday. Crews were not sure what caused the outage, however, and needed time to correct the issue before students returned to class.

Monday evening, officials announced a two-hour delay for Tuesday morning for all FWCS students because of road conditions and anticipated sub-zero temperatures.
