BATON ROUGE – Maintenance crews are on a midnight run to Mississippi so that Brookstown Elementary School can hold classes tomorrow, according to school officials.

Chris Trahan with EBR Schools said the electrical system at Brookstown broke down today, leaving the school without power or heat.  Parents were contacted and told they could pick up their children or keep them at the school site.

Maintenance crews worked on the system all day, but the part needed to bring back power is in Jackson, Miss.  Crews are expected to make it back to Baton Rouge by midnight, and will work overnight to restore power.

Trahan said because of the issues with the electrical system, school at Brookstown will start two hours later on Wednesday but classes will end at their normal time.  Faculty members are also required to report at their normal time.  Buses will run at their regular time and again two hours later in case some students and parents are not made aware of the change.

Local media will be contacted if power is not restored to the school by tomorrow morning.
