CHAMPION - Power flickered briefly mid-morning on Friday and then went out shortly before 11 a.m. at the Trumbull Career and Technical Center.
School officials allowed students to leave early with home schools notified to send school buses early to pick up students with most leaving around noon. The students who drove to school also were permitted to leave.
A program for local female students from throughout the county being held at the Kent State University at Trumbull was ended early so students could return to their home schools.
The outage was due to customer-owned equipment failure and only affected four customers, a spokesman for Ohio Edison said. Power was restored in about an hour.
Ed Stark, superintendent of the Trumbull County Board of Developmental Disabilities, said there was an outage at the Fairhaven Workshop Champion Branch, but the facility did not close. Stark said power went out around 10:30 a.m. and came on around 1:30 p.m. Families were notified of the outage and given the option of picking up students.
Champion Fire Department reported not receiving any calls of a power outage in residential areas.
