BROCKTON--The John F. Kennedy Elementary School is closed today, Friday, October 14, 2011 due to a power outage. Crews are at the school working to restore power, but the work is expected to take several hours.
"The safety of our students and staff is always our first concern," said Deputy Superintendent of Schools John Jerome.
"Given the weather conditions, it would have been difficult to learn and teach today without electricity to light the classrooms and hallways. We apologize for the inconvenience this places on families, but it was a situation that could not have been avoided."
The Smart Start Extended Day program at the Kennedy School is also closed today, and the Kennedy PAC's Pasta Supper, scheduled for this evening, has been cancelled.
