Classes Cancelled at Carson High School

Posted: Updated:

Students got the day off at Carson High School Thursday because of an electrical issue and power outage.

Dan Davis, public information officer for the Carson City School District, says the power outage was caused by an NV Energy fuse on a power line that feeds Carson High School (CHS).

The fire alarms were engaged and students evacuated for safety purposes.

Coincidentally, a fight occurred in the hallway of the school and students were running toward the fight in darkened hallways.

"Not knowing if the power would be out for a short or long duration," says Davis. "And in light of the already agitated student body, we decided to release the students early."

School messenger calls were made to the parents notifying them of the early release.

Power was restored to the school earlier this afternoon, and class will resume as usual tomorrow.
