OHS classes cancelled Monday due to power outage
Classes at Olympic High School were cancelled, and students were sent home, on Monday due to a power outage in Tracyton that left more than 2,500 residents without power.
Administrators chose to release students with vehicles at the school at 11 a.m. Buses transported regular riders home on their routine daily schedule. Parents were welcome to pick up their students if they wanted.
Roger Thompson with Puget Sound Energy said the outage was due to a large tree limb that fell onto power lines at 9:20 a.m. in Tracyton, requiring a tree crew for removal.
Approximately 20 minutes after the limb caused power outages, 1,500 residents had power returned to them. Remaining residents and OHS had power returned later that day.
