Power out at Vineyard Ranch Elementary

Vineyard Ranch

Teachers, students and staff at two NEISD schools attempted to get through the school day with no electricity after early morning storms knocked out power to the school on Wednesday.

According to North East Independent School District spokesperson Aubrey Chancellor, CPS Energy crews were working to restore power at Hidden Forest Elementary School, located near Bitters and Blanco roads, and at Vineyard Ranch Elementary School, located off Huebner Road and Loop 1604.

Chancellor said three schools were initially without power, but one was back up and running shortly after 7 a.m.

At Hidden Forest and Vineyard Ranch, teachers and staff were utilizing the light from windows for classroom instruction. Teachers were also using flashlights in darker areas.
