MENNO-The Menno School District closed Friday due to intermittent morning power outages.

The Menno Public School, which serves students in grades K-12, closed shortly after 9 a.m. after the school's cooks said the power outages would have prevented them from preparing lunch for the students, according to Menno Superintendent Chris Christensen.

Power returned shortly after school was canceled.

Christensen said the 205-student public school closed, as well as the colony schools at the Jamesville and Maxwell colonies.

There will be no makeup day for students. Menno Public School teachers will work until 3 p.m.

Christensen suspected the intermittent power outages that began at approximately 5:45 a.m. were caused by high winds.
