CHICAGO (CBS) — Students at a Grand Boulevard neighborhood elementary school were being bused to another school, or allowed to go home, after a transformer failure caused a power outage.
The power went out around 11 a.m. at Mollison Elementary School, at 4415 S. King Dr., according to ComEd and the Chicago Fire Department.
Chicago Public Schools spokeswoman Becky Carroll said the transformer is located outside the building, so “no students were nearby when the incident occurred and all students at Mollison are safe.”
Parents were notified of the outage by email and robo-call, Carroll said.
