Brown County Schools was made aware that the Town of Nashville and some surrounding areas in Brown County will experience a planned electrical outage on Sunday, November 18 from 10:00 p.m. until approximately 5:30 a.m. on Monday, November 19. Duke Energy is leading this process as they switch out seven failing electrical wooden poles with new metal poles along Clay Lick Road.
In order to be proactive, the Board of School Trustees agreed during last evening’s Board meeting to call a planned 2-Hour Delay for Monday, November 19. By having a 2 hour delay, we will have an opportunity to have our buildings with full power for enough time to get them heated and for our kitchens to be able to prepare breakfast. Additionally, our buses will be able to use Clay Lick Road which will be shut down entirely during the power outage.
We sincerely appreciate the proactive way that Duke Energy has alerted the community and schools regarding this planned electrical outage. I understand they are in the process of alerting their customers who will be affected. By having 2 months to plan for this outage, we hope that our families will be able to have enough time to plan for this 2-Hour delay.
