HOLLEY – Holley schools closed early today and sent students home due to a power outage in the community. All after-school activities were also cancelled.

The entire Holley Central School campus did not have electricity after a tractor trailer hit a pole on Route 31 and Fancher Road, taking out a National Grid power line.

“We have been in communication with National Grid and this situation will not be rectified within a short period of time,” the district stated on its Web site. “Consequently, students in both schools will be dismissed early.”

Holley sent home Middle School/High School students at 10:33 a.m. Morning Pre-K students were dismissed at the regular time.

Elementary School students, including Kindergarten, were dismissed at 11:33 a.m. The afternoon Pre-K is cancelled and all after school and evening activities are cancelled.
