CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - At least five schools in Charlotte-Mecklenburg were without full power Tuesday, and the district says one of those schools will be closed Wednesday due to the issue.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools said Tuesday that Ashley Park, J.H. Gunn, Hidden Valley, Lansdowne, and Irwin had some loss of power. Operations staff was supporting the schools to ensure they had backup lights, generators, and battery-powered lanterns for bathrooms and for food.
CMS said they were working with Duke Energy to determine when power will be fully restored to the schools.
Around 5:30 p.m., CMS said that all schools would be open Wednesday with the exception of Hidden Valley Elementary.
Crest High, Crest Middle, and Union Elementary School in Cleveland County were closed Tuesday due to loss of power.
