Snider dismissing early because of power outage

Snider High School is dismissing students at 1 p.m. because of a power outage, Fort Wayne Community Schools has announced.

The outage is related to aging infrastructure at Snider that needs to be repaired, but is not related to current construction at the school, FWCS said in a statement.

Student drivers, bus riders and walkers will be dismissed under normal procedures, and parents picking up students will be allowed to pick up only their child, the statement said.

It said the district hopes to have Snider students in school on Tuesday.
