NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Parents of students who attend five West Bank school are asked to come pick up their kids after power outages were reported in the area. 

The power has been out since Thursday night when Entergy said a driver crashed into a substation.

According to Nola.com | The Times-Picayune, The Jefferson Parish Public School System said on Facebook that the schools without power are:

  • Butler Elementary
  • Thibodeaux Elementary
  • Pitre Elementary
  • Worley Middle
  • Patrick F. Taylor Academy.

The following statement was obtained by Nola.com | The Times-Picayune from the school district: 

"Student absences will be excused today if parents wish to keep their child at home or check them out of school today due to the power outage.

Students may also stay at and/or report to school. If a parent wishes to check their child out of school, they can do so at their school's main office. School will still be in session, transportation will still be provided, and meals will still be served to students who attend the schools impacted by today's power outage."
