FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Students and faculty at Paschal High School in Fort Worth are in the dark this morning.

A press release from the Fort Worth ISD said an off-campus “power pole incident” caused the outage.

School administrators are assuring that all students, faculty and staff are safe and comfortable.

As it stands, there are no plans to cancel classes. School administrators say a good amount of natural light is pouring in to most areas of the school –- leaving only some hallways dim. Emergency lighting has been brought in.

Since food cannot be prepared without electricity, lunch is being made at another school and will be delivered to Paschal.

The power outage has left the school without phone or internet service.

It’s being suggested to parents that they allow their children to remain at school.

Since the building is without phones or computers, if a parent feels as if their child must leave the adult must go to the school and sign a release. Even students with their own vehicles must have a parent retrieve them personally.
