The Butler School District has canceled classes Monday, joining three other districts in the county that have closed or delayed classes after Thursday's storm.

According to officials, Moniteau School District has canceled classes. Karns City has scheduled a two-hour delay, and South Butler has implemented a two-hour delay with modified kindergarten.

According to Butler's Superintendent Brian White, the Intermediate High School and Center and Summit township elementary schools do not have power.

The Intermediate and Center schools are served by West Penn Power. Summit receives its power from Central Electric Cooperative.

“These schools, you just don't turn them on and off,” White said Sunday night.

He explained when the power is restored, systems like fire alarms and the Internet must be brought back on line and checked.

“Thanks to everyone for being patient with us,” he said.
