COPPERAS COVE, Texas (FOX 44) – Sections of the Copperas Cove High School were without power on Wednesday morning.

The District said its Maintenance Department staff was on-site working to restore the power. However, due to the lack of availability of parts, it didn’t appear power would be restored in a timely manner on Wednesday.

The High School started releasing students at 9:55 a.m., with buses in full operation to return students to their homes. The school planned reward activities on Wednesday for students who demonstrated positive behavior choices, but these activities were moved to Thursday.

The District provided students with breakfast on Wednesday morning, and extended the cafeteria hours to ensure all students received a nutritious meal.

High school staff were not able to receive or make phone calls, or receive or respond to emails due to the outage. Parents will be advised once power has been restored.
