Power Restored At Jeffrey School After Three-Hour Partial Outage

Power outage may have been caused by a squirrel, a school spokeswoman says, one that most likely is no longer with us.


A power outage at Jeffrey School from around 7:30 a.m. to around 10:30 a.m. has been resolved by Connecticut Light & Power Company officials, a school spokeswoman says.

"The power is back on and fully functional," she said around 10:45 a.m. "The power came on about 15 minutes ago."

She said CL&P officials said the cause of the power outage was, most likely, a squirrel.

"A squirrel that is no longer with us," she said. "He's gone on to a better life."

This is the note that Jeffrey School Principal Kathryn Hart sent out to parents earlier Tuesday to keep them informed.

At approximately 7:30 this morning Jeffrey School lost some power and lighting. Many classes have lights and other classes have been relocated to areas of the building that have lights. The CL&P work crew will be working on the issue as soon as possible.

Many teachers and office staff are unable to receive e-mail messages, so please call the Main Office  at  (203) 245-6460 with any urgent messages.

Lunch will be served per the normal schedule.

Thank you.
