Dear Rufus King families:
I am happy to inform you that school will take place as scheduled tomorrow, Friday, January 12th.
We apologize for the disruption caused by the need to cancel classes. While not to get too technical, one of the three primary electrical feeds that provide power to the building unexpectedly failed. That caused a significant outage in the school.
MPS crews were called last night when the power failed, but this was an extensive repair that required We Energies to shut down the system due to the extremely high voltage the feeds carry. Highly-trained individuals from the district and We Energies were needed to safely complete the repair.
Thank you for your patience as we worked through this major issue.
