When students attending the Rising Sun Ohio County Community Schools miss a day of school they are required to make it up.
For that reason make-up days are built into the school calender.
Most of the time the make-up days are a result of bad weather and thus referred to as a “snow day.”
Rising Sun Municipal Utilities experienced a power outage early Tuesday, Sept. 5th.
While most people were getting ready to return to work or school after a long Labor Day weekend, Rising Sun school superintendent Branden Roeder had to put the school on a two hour delay.
“They (utility) said it should be on by 7,” Roeder reported, and shortly before 7 a.m. the electric was on. A decision to close school would have been required by 8:30.
Utility superintendent Shawn Guidance reported the cause was at the substation but full details were not available at deadline Tuesday.
