Power outage forces eastern Iowa school to close early

Posted: Updated:
NORWAY (KWWL) -

The lights are out at an eastern Iowa elementary school so the district is closing early on Monday.

Benton Community Schools will close at 12:30 p.m. because of a power outage at the Norway Center.

Superintendent Gary Zittergruen says Alliant Energy has to dig to fix the problem.  Zittergruen says he knows this creates an inconvenience for families, but says it had to be a district-wide decision to close.

He expects school to resume as scheduled on Tuesday.
