MADISON, Ala. (WHNT) – James Clemens High School in Madison will dismiss early Tuesday due to an electrical issue at the school.

Dismissal will be at 1:45 p.m.  Bus service will adjust accordingly.

Superintendent Dee Fowler said in a statement emailed to WHNT News 19 one of the main transformers that feeds electricity to the building has an oil leak and must be replaced.

“This work needs to be completed as soon as possible to protect the building from power fluctuations that could damage all electronic equipment at the school.  Athens Utilities is on site and monitoring the situation,” stated Dr. Fowler.

This affects only James Clemens High School.  All other schools will dismiss at their regular times.  Dr. Fowler said the school system plans to have this resolved in time for school on Wednesday.
