Power outage to end charter school classes early
BATON ROUGE - Administrators at a Baton Rouge charter school said a power outage forced them to end classes early and call parents to pick up their children Thursday.
Director Diana Haynes of JK Haynes Elementary said the outage was expected to last through the rest of the school day, which led to their decision to close early.
Haynes said their middle school is unaffected by the outage, just the elementary school.
According to Entergy around 2,000 people and businesses around Southern University are affected by the outage as of 12:30 p.m.
Anyone with questions can call the school at (225) 774-1311.
