What started off as a few heavy showers Tuesday night led into a bigger problem at Zionsville Community High School this morning.
The school sent out an alert in the early hours of Wednesday, Aug. 20 to notify parents and students that the school would be closed because there was no power.
Duke Energy, which services much of the Zionsville area, reported hundreds of homes nearby with no electricity.
Now the question on all parents’ minds is: how many school days will be cancelled this year?
Last year, the schools were closed seven times for snow and weather related problems, along with many more delays on bad-weather mornings.
For this year, the Indiana Dept. of Education voted in favor of ZCS using online classroom sources (known as e-days) to make up for lost time in the classroom.
