A local school had to shut down early today due to a power outage.

A news release from Caddo Schools says Herndon Magnet, a K-8 school in Belcher, had to close earlier today because the school is without electricity.

Parents were notified via the district's student information system, JPAMS, and students were either picked up or transported to their afternoon drop-off locations.

SWEPCO is working to restore power at the campus and classes are expected to resume tomorrow.
