Pine Bluff, Arkansas – Coleman Elementary students were released from school earlier than usual on Thursday due to a power outage caused by an accident on Blake Street in Pine Bluff.
The Blake Street accident initially resulted in a tipped power pole, and utility crews were forced to turn the power off in order to fix the power pole.
Later in the day, Watson Chapel School District Superintendent Tom Wilson confirmed the incident and further explained that crews informed him they would need a maximum of six hours to fix the issue and restore power. That’s why the school was canceled earlier on Thursday.
Coleman Elementary was the only school within the school district affected by the power outage.
As of now, no additional details are available from the Pine Bluff Police Department or the city of Pine Bluff.
On Friday, Coleman Elementary opened its doors for students, and classes will continue as per the regular schedule.
