Due to a power outage, Wherry Elementary School is releasing students in its K-5 summer school early on Monday.

According to Albuquerque Public Schools spokesman John Miller, a transformer failed and now PNM crews are waiting on a part to fix it.

Miller said parents are encouraged to pick their children up, but if they cannot, the school will hold them until their regular dismissal time of 3 p.m.

No word yet on whether or not school will be in session on Tuesday.
